Product description

Review

"A master of adventure." --Anne McCaffrey

"Eerie, foreboding music sets the scene as FBI agent Bill Norton, referred to by locals as a chee-chalker, or newcomer, arrives in Ketchikan, Alaska, to search for his boss, who disappeared while investigating a heroin ring. Norton and his eager assistant don't receive much help from the locals as the two agents consider shady halibut fishermen, a beautiful fishing fleet heiress, and a local businessman as possible suspects. In this multicast recording, Norton's flat, serious tones contrast with the innocent voice of heiress Elaine Halloway (portrayed by Meskimen). Excellent sound effects, including slamming doors, blaring ship horns, and fighting fists (complete with realistic punches, groans and thuds), accompany the dialogue. Peals of thunder and pouring rain add to the gloomy atmosphere. The stereotypical depiction of drunken Indians is reflective in the 1940s setting, the era in which this was written. Reminiscent of old-time radio and television dramas, this is most entertaining." --Booklist

"This layered tale takes listeners to Ketchikan, Alaska, where FBI agent Bill Norton finds himself in the middle of a heated investigation involving a group of heroin smugglers. The recording production is the highest quality, filled with realistic sound effects and a powerful musical score. But the ensemble cast lacks the spark of excitement usually found in Galaxy Audio's productions. Though Hubbard's prose is terse and witty as always, the performances are flat and uninspired. Perhaps this particular story lacked the command to captivate the cast's full energy" --Publishers Weekly

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 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.
