Robert Petkoff narrates Never Far Away, a thriller that ricochets listeners from a Florida swamp to the wilds of northern Maine. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten talk about Petkoff’s skill narrating this fast-paced listen. Nina once testified against her wealthy boss when his lethal crimes were revealed, and she was forced to leave her husband and young kids behind in order to protect them. Ten years later, her husband is killed in a car accident, and her children follow instructions to find her. Soon two groups of hired guns come after them—but who’s hunting whom? Petkoff keeps listeners engaged through myriad plot twists.
