Publisher's Summary

A voice from beyond the grave?
College students Kenji and Dylan stumble upon a strange recording in the background of an obscure song. It's a woman's voice uttering a string of seemingly random characters. Upon further inspection, the song appears to have been embedded with a hidden message. Attempting to crack the mysterious code and becoming obsessed with the recording, Kenji and Dylan set off in search of answers. With every turn in the road however, the puzzle only seems to grow more complicated. And sinister.
Retired Vietnam vet Reggie Cash is also drawn in by this message, and before long both he and the two college students are on the trail of the mysterious woman featured in the recording. But who is she, and where is she leading them?
As things fall into place and strange events unfold, the three of them begin to wish that they'd never heard the recording at all.
Transmission is a full-length novel of supernatural horror and suspense by Ambrose Ibsen.

"Normal. Everything was perfectly normal!"

What made the experience of listening to Transmission the most enjoyable?

Arguably, Jake Urry is the most sinister of narration voices in audio today. He could cause cold shivers by simply reading a telephone directory. And yet he is also a master of creating distinct, realistic character voices in conversation. A perfect pairing, therefore, with this story of supernatural happenings.
This is a chiller, not a thriller. No crazy action packed happenings on every page. Just the insidious creeping fear of something very wrong, of having made wrong choices, of being watched, of wanting to be anywhere but there ... Always moving towards an inevitable end.
It creeps up on you - and won't let go. Good rounded characters, two college students and an older man, all pleasant, likeable, and all caught up in more than they can control. It makes the listener want to shout, 'Get out now whilst you still might have a chance'

My heartfelt thanks for the gift of this book. It filled an otherwise tedious day with tingles down my spine. Even if I have now vowed never again to listen to those strange voices in the background of some musical recordings ...

Spine-chillingly good

I had to go on a lengthy road trip and thought listening to this in the car would keep me entertained. It did, but next time I drive along dark, isolated country roads on my own for hours on end I might have to pick something less creepy. I had no idea how much this supernatural thriller was going to freak me out. This was my third book by Ambrose Ibsen and definitely my favorite so far. I've listened to several stories narrated by Jake Urry now and I have always commented on how well he does with suspenseful, scary stories. He took it to yet another level with this one!
Transmission is the story of three men, a Vietnam vet and two College guys, who become intrigued by a woman's voice on a recording repeating a seemingly random combination of characters, like a code. They decide to do some research to establish the identity of the woman and as they do, they become increasingly obsessed with the mystery surrounding her and the code.
This is a great book if you enjoy spine-chilling mysteries with supernatural elements. There is nothing gory or explicit, but the author is extremely successful at creating a menacing, dark atmosphere. The narration is first-class, utterly brilliant, but don't listen when you're alone in the dark.
