While the show is on air, he calls people from the phonebook at random. If they pick up the phone with a certain slogan, a hostage is set free. If they don't, then the hostage is unceremoniously shot. The man threatens to continue playing this game until his fiancée arrives at the studio. The only problem is that his fiancée died several months ago....

Excellent narration, good storyline but...

the musical dramatisation was a bit much & off-putting. Actors were very good, first time I've listened to an audio book using different actors for each character & I would listen to similar again. Without the music!

Gripping drama

This was more than a book - it was an amazing drama. I am unable to read or watch television at the moment, and what a welcome change to listen to Amok where I felt immersed in the story. I was a little confused at first with the different characters and very nearly gave up but I'm so pleased that I persevered.
I congratulate and thank the author, the production team and the actors for a welcome break!
