With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
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.
