ONE STEP AHEAD: “The narration is excellent. Rich McVicar's voice is easy to listen to, beautifully modulated and perfectly fitting the subject matter.”

DALLAS HOMICIDE: ‘”The narrator did a great job in the audiobook of giving visuals to the listener and imparting the emotion and tension in the story.”

TWO STEPS AHEAD: “Mr McVicar brings a rich fullness to the characters. They become unique individuals in my minds eye that I can picture very clearly. He does an excellent job.”

MISSING PERSON: “I found myself sitting in my car after I reached my destinations not wanting to quit listening. Very pleasant surprise!”

WHERE'S MY SON?: "Rich McVicar's narration really brought the characters to life, completely drawing me into the story. He seamlessly switches between genders and characters with ease."

UNNAMED (to protect the innocent): “The only good thing about this book was the narration. The narrator had a pleasant, clear, and crisp voice. He added more sincerity to the book than the words did. If it wasn't for the narrator, I wouldn't of even finished listening.”

Various audiobooks

"I don't have words to express how well-done this narration has been recorded. The speed is perfect, the Spanish pronunciation could not be better. Also, you've interpreted the contents of the guide very well, giving it an added value. For example, the phrase, "To return to wine what wine has given us." Fantástico, muy muy bien!!!!!"
