FBI Agents Lucy Kincaid and Nate Dunning are assigned to do a prisoner transport from Brady, Texas back to their home base of San Antonio. The prisoner is a Most Wanted suspect in a string of robberies, one resulting in murder. When they arrive, they’re asked to transport one more prisoner because the station has been flooded and with the impending storm, they are short handed. Nate, who’s familiar with transport protocols, is on immediate alert. Lucy follows suit when she notices odd behavior by the supposed two strangers during the trip. Despite them taking every precaution and support measure, the storm presents additional hazards and what they suspected might happen rises up before them.
This is not your typical short story because a lot happens in a very short period of time. The transport was fraught with tension and danger, the storm was a vibrant additional element and finding the whole robbery team required real teamwork and ingenuity. Often I thought I knew where the story was going, only to be thrown a wrench and have it pivot in a new direction. I hadn’t planned to finish this in one sitting but it was impossible to let go. The narrator was wonderful as she made me even more nervous in her storytelling. The pacing was perfect with just the right emphasis at strategic moments. It was a harrowing listening experience, in a good way.
