It’s 1962 and Hollywood’s sexiest private eye has gone undercover on the set of a low-budget science fiction flick to investigate the death of B-Queen Zu Zu Varga. It looks like murder, but who had motive? Was it the scheming ingénue, the down-on-his luck director, the jealous agent, or the aging teen heartthrob? And then there’s that killer robot! Based on the Moonstone Entertainment mini-series Murder on Mars and featuring characters from the Honey West novels by G. G. Fickling and the television series starring Anne Francis.

“The case was excellent, giving the story that complete Honey West of the 60s feel. The characters are all perfectly performed and it almost sounds as if you are listening to an old radio show. Great acting, realistic sound effects and the music! The music segues really added an extra oomph! to this performance. They were old jazzy lounge music bits that fit in with the portrayed time and setting of this performance. All of this together makes for a very entertaining production that you should really get for your collection now.” (BOOKS/Gather.com)
“Since the late 1950s, the brash and beautiful Honey West has had a healthy cult following in novels, comics, and television. Now the alluring detective has been adapted to audio, and she s found the perfect narrator, Carrington MacDuffie. MacDuffie brings all the vocal sass, humor, and smarts needed to break a tough case wide open.” (AudioFile)
“There are audiobooks, and then there are audio presentations. In the arena of audio presentations, some are just books that are read with a superb excellence, and others are intended to be listened to. This experience is the latter. Honey West: Murder on Mars is recorded with a cast of voices perfect for the match, complete with acting ability and suspense.” (Scripted/Genius)
Wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but I was so pleasantly surprised!
Outstanding job by the cast (esp. Carrington MacDuffie!). I especially liked the transition music. As with Chili Palmer in the movie version of Get Shorty, Honey West gets some groovin', funky segue tunes as well. Very cool in helping set character.
Storyline was absolutely fun - chock full of quirky characters, sometimes ridiculous (in a good way) situations, and all with a nice wrap up to this whodunnit?
I believe they're doing a sequel for Honey West sometime this year - will definitely be getting it!
