Today we release audiobook readings of two novels by Jack Gerson, creator of The Omega Factor...
While writer Jack Gerson is rightly regarded for his creation of the late 1970s BBC TV show The Omega Factor starring James Hazeldine and Louise Jameson, there is other work too. Big Finish are proud to today release two downloadable audiobook readings of his novels The Evil Thereof and The Fetch:
The Fetch read by Carolyn Seymour:
It's the 1980s and Alistair Matheson is forging a quietly ambitious path in Government. All is going to plan until a brief encounter with a man who looks exactly like him throws Alistair's ordered world into chaos. As this doppelgänger crosses his path time and again a series of events are set in motion with increasingly disturbing consequences. Is this double a spy? A conman? Or could he be something infinitely more sinister?
The Evil Thereof read by Barnaby Edwards:
Tasked by his news editor to come up with a sensational article about old, unsolved murders, reporter Eric Braden finds himself in rural Warwickshire, investigating the horrific death of a local lothario, whose body was surrounded by pagan symbols.
The detective from the original investigation is now a broken man and reluctant to tell his story but there are others who demand answers, even all these years later. As Braden delves deeper, encountering hostility and denial at every step, he soon realises that village life is not as innocuous as the locals would have him believe and that something unimaginably dark still resides here, waiting to be released…
Both The Fetch and The Evil Thereof are now available on download for £9.99 each, or collected together in a bundle for £16. If you're using the free Big Finish Download/Playback App for Android or Apple devices you will be able to listen wherever you are (please note these will be large files, and users should be wary of bandwidth usage).
