Dashiell Hammett is among a handful of authors who are synonymous with private detectives. In the foreword of this audiobook, narrator Alison Belle Bews deftly details his place among the genre's pioneer writers. Eight classic cases follow, featuring Golden Voice narrator Stefan Rudnicki, the ideal choice to deliver Hammett's gruff, nameless PI from the Continental Detective Agency. Hammett's Op isn't movie-star handsome--he's short, with average looks, a fast wit, and quick feet. But however far the Op must travel to solve this or that crime, Rudnicki's sonorous tones assure listeners that the truth will come out in the end. This is what a private dick should sound like. Complete with the requisite Irish accents for the cops, this engaging production is a charming period piece. D.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
