Collected here are four of Hubbard's golden age pulps—"Killer's Law," "They Killed Him Dead," "The Mad Dog Murder," and "The Blow Torch Murder"—tales of corruption, intrigue, crime, and, of course, murder. For all four stories, R.F. Daley provides spot-on, fast-paced narration—as if he were a lawyer with a woefully short amount of time to communicate key information to a condemned man. The spirited performance of the full cast provides even minor characters with distinctive, if occasionally caricatured, voices. But caricatured or not, the characters featured in these whodunits require such treatment. As with previous Hubbard titles, this audio edition boasts sound effects and music, giving it the feel of an old-time radio drama. Listeners in search of quick, plot-driven stories will find just what they're looking for—and with four stories packed into two hours, this audiobook is the very definition of brisk entertainment. A Galaxy Press paperback. (Oct.)
