Blackstone Audio returns listeners to the thrilling days of yesteryear with some of the best takes from the most popular hard-boiled mystery publication of the 1930s and ‘40s, BLACK MASK MAGAZINE. This first volume has performances by 14 of today's top audio narrators, including Richard Ferrone, Grover Gardner, Jeff Woodman, Christine Williams, George Guidall, Richard Allen, Lorna Raver, and Tom Weiner. Directed by Yuri Rasovsky, the production has plenty of period music and wonderful sound effects. For those old enough to remember, it's a déjà vu of radio days—but even better. The standout stories are "Taking His Time," "Trouble Chaser," and "Pigeon Blood." These shorts, highly acclaimed in the 1930s, are given new life by some of the best voices of our time.
