Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1957

Written by the late author in the 1950s, this offering quickly was made into a hard-hitting movie. Two misfits plan a bank robbery. John Ingram is black, and his partner, Earl, is a white bigot. When the robbery doesn’t come off as expected, all hell breaks loose, and the unlikely pair and a love interest must rely on each other to extricate themselves from the situation. Tom Weiner's performance is so strong, the listener is completely hooked from the start. His deep voice, sometimes harsh, sometimes warm, gives credibility to the two protagonists. His performance is rich, straightforward, and no-nonsense. Oddly, he's impressive, too, as the female lead. It's clear that because of Weiner's reading, this chestnut stands the test of time.
