Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1929

Even though Sam Spade thinks his partner was a rat, the private detective’s code compels Spade to get to the bottom of things when he turns up dead. Michael Prichard does a creditable job with this classic detective yarn, especially with the voices of some of the secondary characters. However, he doesn’t sound quite gritty enough in his portrayal of tough-guy Sam Spade. P.B.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
