About this audiobook

Unlock your Inner Sherlock...

Sheriff Kyle of Deadeye, Nevada has traveled to the nation's capital to personally bring evidence against one of the state's wealthiest copper kings. But instead of giving his findings to the senator he's supposed to meet, Kyle discovers a trail of blood moments before he's knocked unconscious.

Kyle awakens to the flashing bulbs of reporters and harsh voices of police demanding to know why he's killed the popular politician. Things look particularly bleak-he's got no alibi, no memory of who knocked him out, and his five-inch knife is sticking out of the corpse-casting all suspicions his way. 

Also includes the mystery stories They Killed Him Dead, The Mad Dog Murder, and The Blow Torch Murder.

Listeners will have a genuine sense that they are back in the Golden Age of radio. - The Strand Magazine

A Galaxy Press audio production.

L. Ron Hubbard

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most enduring and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard. Then too, of course, there is all L. Ron Hubbard represents as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology and thus the only major religion born in the 20th century.

    I received Killer's Law (Stories from the Golden Age) by L. Ron Hubbard as an early reviewers book giveaway. Killers Law is an awesome collection of stories from the Golden Age of Pulp stories. When I listened to this audio book I felt like a child of the 1930's sitting in front of an antique radio. (Who needs TV!) The stories in Killers Law are full of action and suspense. Pulp stories may not be "literally material" but they are just plain FUN! These stories took me back to an era I read about in history books. (You can tell a lot about past eras by the fiction that was written during that time.) If you want reading to be FUN again, then join the pulp revival! Read the works of L. Ron Hubbard and be taken back in time to an era of intrigue and excitement that today's books just don't have.

    This was my first experience with audio short stories and I enjoyed being able to listen to an entire story on the short drive between home and work and kid's schools. My daughter and I laughed out loud at some points during the stories. I wasn't sure what to expect but this was definitely a fun blast from the past.

    This is my first audiobook to add to my Library. This consists of four mystery stories written by L. Ron Hubbard.I love these type of stories, and read a lot of them. A couple of these were pretty good but a couple of them were just so-so.They are presented in a full cast audio drama. I usually prefer those type to just someone reading the story. The acting here was kind of laughable, with stereotypical accents, and the narration was stilted. It took me a while to warm up to the format.Also the accompanying booklet was all about what a mastermind and genius L. Ron Hubbard was. He apparently single- handedly invented science fiction!Not a big Hubbard fan and the booklet extolling his virtues didn't help change that.Entertaining but not the best.

    I received this book free from Library Thing to review. This book was released by Galaxy Press as part of its line of books published during the golden age. In the first story of this book, Sheriff Kyle travels to Washington, DC to deliver evidence against a wealthy copper king to Senator Meringue. The sheriff is knocked unconscious and soon finds himself holding a weapon used to murder the Senator. He then must exonerate himself, although he has no alibi or idea what happened. A real trial for a true detective. In another, Detective Cassidy catches a killer at the crime scene, though he didn’t see the suspect kill the victim, has no idea why the victim was killed and also has no murder weapon. Another real trial. The stories go on. In all, there are four tales of dedicated cops/detectives who face big challenges solving their cases amid the many and varied twists and turns. The audio book was filled with fantastic sound effects and kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire time. If you are looking for some real excitement or if you enjoy cops and robbers stories, I recommend taking time to listen to these revived stories. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.

    I received an audibook version of this title. I was really impressed. Not only did I enjoy it, I have since ordered a set from the catalog sent with the title. It was like listening to a vintage radio program. Highly recommended.
