It’s not easy being Rhys Williams. You’re married to the sexiest woman in Torchwood. She saves the world for a living, you move lorries round in a timely fashion.

Suddenly, you’ve got a mystery of your own. Oh, it starts off being about missing fridges. But it leads to a midnight train pulling into an abandoned platform at Cardiff Station. What is the mysterious cargo that Rhys is unloading from the train? Where’s it going? And what can be behind it?

Rhys Williams is going to get to the bottom of it. All by himself, thank you very much. Soon Captain Jack is missing, his wife’s dead, and it’s up to Rhys to try and put everything right. And find those fridges…

    Best of the audiobooks.
    Reasons why I love this audiobook:
    – Outsider POV is always so entertaining, especially when it comes to Torchwood, which really would only make sense with an insider POV. So listening to someone trying to figure it out from the outside is always a good time.
    – the outsider POV is RHYS’S POV so… even better. Like ten thousand times better. Rhys is amazing.
    – Rhys, with little help and limited understanding, does his best to save the world. He may not understand everything, but he does what he can, and that is just… brilliant.
    – Rhys’s relationships with the other characters! It’s so wonderful to get another side of Gwen and Rhys’s relationship, because we often view it from Gwen’s side. It’s nice to see his side! And any interaction between Rhys and Jack is bound to be interesting, if at least not funny. Plus, Rhys and Ianto’s interactions have never been explored before this, really, so that was brilliant to get to see!
    – Kai Owen’s voice is literally so perfect for reading audiobooks. This and Department X are what calm me down when I need to be calm. Kai Owen please read more audiobooks. I don’t even care what they are; I’ll listen to them no matter what.

    By far the best audiobook I’ve listened to so far!! This is amazing and I loved it soo much! I really loved that it was focused on Rhys and told from his point of view, it was great to see more of his character and love how much in love with Gwen he is in this and also how supportive he is of her!!
    It was very entertaining especially getting to see Rhys interact with both Jack and Ianto and just, Rhys saving the world with very limited help and like no experience is the best thing ever

    This was really different to all the other audio dramas so far. Mainly because it is told from Rhys Williams point of view and Kai Owen does an excellent job with it. I love how he voices the other characters absolutely spot on. Be prepared for a really complicated story that asks for your complete attention!
