Publisher's Summary

Tracks: Chimera

A tower block collapses in London. Hundreds are killed.

Except a man standing alone on the roof, who walks out of the rubble unscathed.

And things are about to get stranger, because Dr Helen Ash is pregnant. But she hasn’t had sex since her husband died 18 months ago.

What connects her unexplained pregnancy, a mysterious phone message from a woman who died in the building collapse, and the man on the roof of the high-rise?

The gripping conspiracy thriller and winner of Best Sound (BBC Audio Drama Awards) and Best Fiction (British Podcast Awards) returns for a third series.

Tracks: Indigo

Dr Helen Ash is involved in a road accident. But where was she going in such a hurry? And why can’t she remember?

The answer lies in the riddle of Helen’s daughter, Frances, who’s older than she should be. And a mysterious ‘child-mother’, who’s younger than she should be....

Romola Garai returns as Helen Ash in the compelling fourth series of Tracks.

Tour de force by Hattie Morahan

These far fetched but addictive thrillers are brilliantly acted and directed. Whilst Romola Garai is excellent as Dr Helen Ash, when Hattie Morahan takes over the role in Series 3 she takes it to a new level. It’s one of the best audio performances I’ve heard and alone justifies listening to Tracks. Highly recommended.

Another fine outing

This is an excellent continuation of the series. As with series one and two, I reported issues with the download of this set and Audible promptly fixed it. For those who enjoyed the first couple of series, I'd recommend this book highly. New readers should purchase the first set because although the stories in this one are entirely different, many references are made throughout regarding the first couple of series.

Great... but...

I previously purchased and listened to series 1 & 2 and absolutely inhaled it in a couple of sittings. Obviously I immediately purchased this series 3 & 4... it was great, however I did not enjoy this one as much as series 1 & 2.

I felt like series 1 was conspiracy / shadow organization / mystery fast paced action, but this series went a bit more to the paranormal / weird side? I'm not sure, but I definitely felt like this one was a bit convoluted and harder to follow. It's still very entertaining, but I think I may need to listen to it again. There are some sort of dream sequences that I didn't quite follow and some of the other stuff about a reverse time mother who is actually a child that I didn't quite get... I think I may have been distracted so will try again.

I'd still recommend this series, really good sound stage, good acting etc.

Somewhat mediocre but still enjoyable

I enjoyed many moments, but I'm not sure about the stories as such. They felt fragmented in places, falling apart as you go along. But the actors' performance is fine overall. Helen Ash strikes me as a little too paranoid and prone to hallucination, though. Was that crucial to her character from the start? Reading too much into what unfolds in front of her...
