Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alan Sklar

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1965

Johnny and Doug, old cronies, think up an elaborate real estate scam--but who really gets taken? The mark is entrepreneur Wallace Gunderman, who happens to have a captivating and disenchanted secretary, Evelyn. Alan Sklar’s experience doing radio and TV commercials serves him well as he impersonates Johnny, who pitches the deal to Gunderman. You believe every word he says in his warm, gravelly voice even though you know Johnny is lying through his teeth. Sklar also zeros in on Gunderman’s smarmy self-assuredness and Evelyn’s sexy persuasiveness as she worms her way into the scheme. This was written in 1965, before audiobooks became popular, but it makes the transition nicely. J.B.G.
