Default Audio Drama Recommendation

Need some advice for a friend.... I have all the audio dramas (http://www.blacklibrary.com/audio/audio-drama).

Which one would you recommend as a first introduction to someone who is not familiar with 40k at all? Never played the game, never read any of the books?

Problem with the audio dramas is that they are god horrible introduction material, but if you still want to go along with it, the Garro ones are something I would consider using myself, but then those are part of a fucked up long series... For a typical 40k tale, The Ascension of Balthasar or The Stromark Massacre. To make the whole thing look less fucked up than it is I would go for Thorn and Talon which is somewhat normal and can be understood without too much education on the subject, but then its not exactly your typical bolter pr0n story.

Yeah, was thinking Master Imus's Transgression would be a good one too.

I wouldn't know which would be best for a newbie as I have only heard half a dozen or so myself, but I really loved Raven's Flight which I think with a very basic background knowledge of the Heresy can be enjoyed by a newbie. The Garro dramas are good also.
