Mystery & Suspense • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

It's 1931, and Son Martin has 150 barrels of illegal whisky hidden on his property. This draws Frank Long, a federal agent with a Browning automatic rifle and an eye for the quick profit. Frustrated in his search, the crooked agent enlists a villainous defrocked dentist with a sidekick who just plain likes killing people. Soon the whole county is at war. Mark Hammer has molasses in his voice, and cordite in his delivery. He crams more menace into his silences than other narrators can extract from a page of text. "Hey Frank... I was just fixin' to go see you." You can't stop listening. You keep checking to make sure your wallet's still in your back pocket. This is an engrossing listen.
