Summary

When a photographic retoucher is commissioned to fix the abnormalities on a Great War portrait, he finds his own past and that of the subject beginning to connect. Are his personal nightmares returning, or is it something more? 

A short ghost story in the M.R. James tradition, "The Last Photograph of John Buckley" is a dark tale of past crimes and unfinished business.

Haunting Connection

As a representative of AudioBookReviewer.com here is my review on The Last Photograph of John Buckley written by Tim Brown and narrated by Marston York.

Commissioned to retouch a photograph from WW2, we are brought into the paranormal world. We are brought from past to present and back to a horrifying past. We quickly see the connection in this sad yet satisfying ghost story.

Tim does a wonderful job keeping the story moving while providing detail and navigating the timeline. The characters are nicely built and you will experience emotions for all, including the ghost! With the twists and turns that are present, you will not want to put this down until you get to the end. Tim does not let us down and provides a most deserving ending to this haunting tale.

Marston York fantastically narrates this story. His voice was smooth and provided a nice touch to characters when needed.

Overall, this was a good listening experience.

The audio production of this story was clear and well done, there were no issues.

WWII Ghost Story

Just the right touch of eerie. Same again, of interesting. Draws you in page by page, coil by coil, like a classic English ghost story should. Beautifully read in a voice perfectly suiting the material. I hope Audible chooses to record more of his work.
