Not Bad!

Pretty good short story by an author I don’t generally like that much. But he did a good job with this one. The excellent presentation by the narrator did a lot to enhance the overall experience. I like the cover art as well which, if you look closely at it for a bit, is really quite creepy! 🧟‍♂️

Riley’s training new agents

Riley is training new agent students—NATs, they were called. She is teaching them and telling them what it was like to be an FBI Agent in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. When she was asked a question about her time in the field the question triggered a memory from her past when she herself was held captive by the killer. She’s here to share her mistakes for the incoming agents so they wouldn’t make the same mistakes.

Elaine Wise is a UK voice artist. She brought her British voice to Once Solved. I really enjoy listening to her performance. While her British voice is stunning to listen to it isn’t necessary to the story. Riley’s character works for the FBI which is located in the US.

It’s 21 minutes of 2 chapters listening to Riley train new agents. It is what it is. Could’ve be included in anyone of the other books. This didn’t need to be a separate short story. Could’ve been a prequel or a epilogue. Either way it’s a few extra scenes into Riley Paige’s character.

I have read several other Blake pierce books and enjoyed them. This was the first short story I read/ listened to and it was very disappointing and boring.
