Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

AFTER DARK CLASSICS, featuring the work of nine masters of mystery, including Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker, exemplifies the reasons that short stories—especially mysteries—transfer wonderfully to audio. It’s also an excellent introduction to the lesser-known works of these great writers. Like nuggets of dark chocolate, the stories are rich and satisfying, yet their brevity leaves the listener wanting more. Perhaps what makes these stories so good is the use of multiple narrators—Robin Bailey, Patrick Malahide, Richard Pasco, and Barbara Leigh-Hunt—who sound as though each selected his or her favorites to perform. While every listener will surely have a favorite or two, or three, the tandem of performers helps to ensure that each performance, like each story, is a gem.
