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.

Mediocre to stupid

I just can't bring myself to give this book 3 stars. I didn't want to be too mean in my rating, but really by the end I just couldn't give it 3 stars. Lots of 2nd hand ideas taken from eg. Close encounters of the 3rd kind, The Stone Tapes, Etc, Etc. Author kept writing how afraid the protagonists were "hairs standing up on their necks" Etc - but he never vividly described a scary seen. The reader couldn't therefor put himself in the picture & be afraid; because the scariness was not conveyed by the written word to the reader. Narrator kept running 1 paragraph straight on from another, so that poignant pauses were lost & 1 point made was just left to run in to an entirely disparate point/ subject. Whole thing very amateurish.

"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 ...
