Publisher's Summary

When Matthew Luedecke leaves his small town for the university, he's hoping for a new start and a more exciting life. He'll get more than he bargained for. Recruited by a shadowy group of Nicaraguan ex-pats, Matt soon discovers how sheltered and blinded most Americans are when it comes to the covert machinations of world powers and the intricacies and danger of international intrigue. From an innocent pool party to a bloody firefight along the Coco River in Nicaragua's dense jungles, Matt is about to find out that an "exciting" may not be all it's cracked up to be.
One Arm of the Octopus is a novelette, originally published in Tales of Tinfoil: Stories of Paranoia and Conspiracy.

"Maybe in another life .."

Would you consider the audio edition of One Arm of the Octopus to be better than the print version?

Yes. I had read and enjoyed the story in Tales of Tinfoil, and it impressed me then. However, listening to it read so excellently by narrator, Chase Bradley, was like having the story recounted personally by the speaker, bringing it all very personally to life. It made a greater impact.
The story is written in the first person so Mr.Bradley becomes the man looking back to 1985, the time in his life when, arriving fresh at university and knowing no one, met a lovely young woman who attracted and intrigued him before finding a new friend, Paul. The meetings change the course of his life and, belatedly, his understanding of what really lies behind society. Mr.Bradley's pleasantly modulated voice is perfectly paced and makes the whole experience very intimate.

An informative, fascinating and very believable book : beautifully written, good story, perfectly narrated. Highly recommended.
