New thriller Painkiller was an absolute pleasure to record.


I cannot go on like this. I feel like such a burden to you. You are young and can start again. You deserve that chance. By the time you read this, I will be dead. Do not grieve for me, for I am now without pain. Yours truly forever, Monica.

Clever thriller Painkiller is Private Eye writer Nev Fountain’s debut novel and it is absolutely brilliant. We were extremely lucky to have the wonderful Nicola Bryant, best known as Peri in Doctor Who (alongside Peter Davidson and Colin Baker), and John Banks narrating this title with us here at Chatterbox. Painkiller is released on the 18th February – get it here.

Nev came along too to see what goes on behind the scenes at the studios and we had a little chatNev with him…
