Every month, a new audio series will bring you to the edge of your seat — and keep you there. With episodes dropping twice a week, you’ll never be without something to keep the adrenaline flowing.

Whether you’re uncovering the secret of disappearing ships in the Bermuda Triangle, or in the race of your life against time and your evil doppelgänger, you may want to watch your back, as things are not always as they seem. The suspense and excitement of ADRENALINE will show that fight or flight are not the only options in the face of danger. Sometimes you just need to keep listening…

This month, we are featuring a story called Ninth Step Murders. In a near-future Tokyo, a Japanese investigator and US peacekeeper reluctantly join forces to solve a series of bizarre murders.

It's 2033 and Tokyo, partially occupied by China, is in a state of fear, distrust, and drone-enforced surveillance. When Detective Miyako Koreda is paired with Lieutenant Emma Higashi of the US Peacekeeping force, Miyako is annoyed by the obviously American-backed PR stunt. But as the city is ailed by a rise in gruesome crimes, Miyako and her new partner must quickly learn to trust each other as they race against the clock to investigate each case —which range from a missing shipment of dangerous weapons to a faceless body on the subway platform — all while dealing with frequent blackouts, local gangs, and underground resistance forces.

Ninth Step Murders is a Realm production, written by Malka Older, Curtis C. Chen, Jacqueline Koyanagi, and Fran Wilde. Listen Away.

Hosted by Neil Hellegers.
