When those around you want what you have, some men will go to any lengths to stop them...
A short, dark, psychological thriller, Shoebox is a story that follows Schofield on a spiraling journey into paranoia, madness, and insanity. Nobody can be trusted. Nobody is safe. The shoebox belongs to Schofield, and he will do whatever it takes to protect it.

The Shoebox is a very short, quick listen, dark psychological thriller. With a small character count of three. But really the only one that matters is Lee Schofield the protagonist.
One day Lee is out in his garden when he discovers a shoebox that doesn’t belong out in his garden. A quick peek inside he discovers the box contains £180,000. With this amount of money Lee believes that he will be able to start his life over and fix all of his problems.
Almost immediately Lee is over come with paranoia. Thinking that whoever lost this much money would be looking for it and would probably hurt him if they found he had it. Afraid that his lodger (roommate) could also take the money and ruin Lee’s life. Lee began to think of ways to secure the cash in his room with locks and such. The only problem is that Lee is also sort of lazy and puts it off for a day while his paranoia grows.
What something to screw with your dreams? Give this a listen before bed. You and your dreams will not be disappointed. I really enjoyed the darkness and the surprise at the end that I didn’t see coming. I will be looking for more from Bray.
The lesson to be learned from this story is that no one can be trusted, especially yourself.
Have yet to come across a performance by Chris Barnes where he stumbles. He is a narrator that you can count on time after time for a solid breath of life to the authors words.no one can be trusted, especially yourself. @Michaelbrayauth @ChrisBarnesVA Click To Tweet
