The Kolchak Papers: The Original Novels by Jeff Rice
In 1972, Jeff Rice's novel The Night Stalker introduced Carl Kolchak to the world. This spine-tingling novel of supernatural terror became an instant best seller and served as the basis for the film of the same name. After The Night Stalker became one of the highest rated television movies of all time, a sequel, The Night Strangler, was released the following year to great acclaim. Now, after more than three decades out of print, The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler are together in one volume.

Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule
The first two stories are enjoyable... Especially the first/original, if you're a fan of the hard bitten investigator tilting at windmills, a child of the 60's/70's, and/or a died in the wool Kolchak fan... Good stories in their style, and I've been waiting for years for them to be back in print, and I wasn't disappointed, nor was the wait unrewarded... The 2nd pair of stories were disappointing and not terribly interesting... They didn't seem to have any focus, and were vague in plot... The narration is absolutely expert and contributed to a positive reading... I could see Kolchak as he was reading... Perfect!! Had the latter stories been left off the narration woulda made this a 4* offering...
