Publisher's Summary

This was to be her last day alive. The renowned criminal psychologist Ira Samin prepared her suicide thoroughly. The death of her eldest daughter had weighed too heavily on her conscience for her to carry on and she yearned for one last drink to raise a toast to oblivion. Her morbid plans are interrupted and she is called in to negotiate a gruesome hostage situation at a radio station where a psychopath is playing a morbid game.
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....
Amok is a tense psychological hostage thriller set in a Berlin Radio Station, from the internationally renowned author of the best-selling Audible Original Drama The Child.

Over Blown Pathetic Clap Trap - Bad Writing

The pretentious writing is annoying pathetic clap trap.

This writer is trying far too hard, leading to failure. This is what I expect an amateur to produce, not a writer who is expecting his intelligent paying audience to read.

I listened to the 15 minutes of Free Claptrap which went on like 5 hours of gut wrenching torture, feeling very sorry for my grey cells which were
begging me to 'Switch Off'. But I wanted to persevere to find out what all of the Over Blown Advertising was all about, when suddenly the ever so serious excited narrator; STOPPED rambling !! and all went Dead - Thank God. All it left me feeling was - NOTHING. Just glad it was over.
Why are we being advertised to death to Listen to and buy this Dreadful work ???
Now I can get on with my life and stop wondering any longer.
What a luxury this feels and I am so happy no to have fallen into the Advertisers Trap - I will keep my valuable Credits and my precious money.
I escaped yet more Brain Washing to buy Bad Work.
