Getting ahead

The third in this series of standalone, although interconnected short stories - and it just keeps getting better. This story continues with characters who appeared in episode 1, The B Team, and, yes, also returns to the frequently used "said" mentioned in other reviews and which did not occur in episode 2. But don't let this put you off. The story is full of intrigue, strongly and humourously drawn personalities who are further given life by the excellent dialogue renderings of William Dufris..
Imaginative, dark but often funny and only 79p per episode, ignore the overuse of the word said - or treat it as i do as an extra element in the comic rendition - and go treat yourself: buy it now and enjoy.
