Overview


Sheriff Kyle of Deadeye, Nevada, is headed east to the nation’s capital. Like Dennis Weaver in the television series McCloud, Kyle’s about to discover that the law can be even wilder in the big city than in the Wild West. It’s a fact that hits home when he’s accused . . . of murder. Welcome to Washington D.C., where corruption and intrigue are all in a day’s work. Kyle’s got no alibi, no memory, and apparently doesn’t have a prayer . . . unless he can find a way to outwit and outfox the masters of deception and double-crosses.

“Listeners will have a genuine sense that they are back in the Golden Age of radio.” —The Strand Magazine
 

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Audio
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.)
