A novella and 12 stories from a master of supernatural horror.
Father John has lived his whole life without knowing a woman's touch. Hard at first, his self-denial grew easier over time, as he learned to master his urges with a regimen of prayer, cold showers, and jigsaw puzzles. That changes the day that Debra Rocks enters his confessional. A rough-talking adult film actress, she has come to ask him to pray for a murdered costar. Her cinnamon perfume infects Father John, and after she departs he becomes obsessed. Around the corner from his church is a neon-lit alley of sin. He goes there hoping to save her life before he damns himself.
That is Blue World, the novella that anchors this collection of chilling stories by Robert R. McCammon. Although monsters, demons, and murderers fill this audio, in McCammon's world the most terrifying landscape of all is the barren wasteland of a lost man's soul.

Ruined by one of the narrators.
I'm on my 10th McCammon audiobook, and this one is probably the most disappointing - all due to the horrible performance of one of the narrators. Whomever coached or directed the narrator did him a disservice. I have no idea what those stories were like because I couldn't go more than a few minutes before having to skip to the next story. It's that bad. The main title entry, Blue World, was well written, and well read, but not at the purchase price of $26. If it drop to about $15, get this audiobook collection for that story alone.
