An example of pulp fiction at its finest! Larger-than-life hero Brent Calloway must fight for his life when his true identity is revealed aboard a cargo ship. The hard-boiled tones of the narrator are perfect for the genre. And you can almost smell the alcohol on the deep, throaty growls of infamous villain Spike O'Brien. In contrast, Calloway's tone is cool, calm, and collected—just like his personality. The use of sound effects is appropriate, adding to the overall listening experience without distracting from the voice talents: Waves lap against the ship, gunshots ring out, punches crack, and helpless women squeal for aid. The production also includes the short story "Grounded." M.D. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
