Publisher's Summary

In this full-cast production of the classic pulp novel, The Shadow investigates as, one by one, the partners in a chemical company die mysterious deaths.

The plot of Partners of Peril and much of the action is almost identical to "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", the very first Batman story in Detective Comics #27, which appeared some years later. In fact the creators of Batman acknowledged they drew their inspiration for the Caped Crusader from this classic Shadow story.

    Story
    "Original Pulpy Goodness Given a Fresh Spin!"

    This plays like a cross between a traditional audiobook and an old time radio show. Not quite either, this is the best multicast performance I've ever seen from Audible Studios. Enriched with sound effects, music, and few little tricks that harken back to the days of the Shadow radio show, this one is a tremendous amount of fun. Now, you have to understand what you are getting here. This is an original pulp novel from the 30's so the prose is a bit over the top, but fun? Oh boy, is this fun. Unleash your inner 10 year old for a few hours and enjoy this. I certainly hope Audible studios does more of these performances/readings with a full cast. There are more than 300 novels featuring the Shadow to choose from and the Doc Savage stories would lend themselves to this kind of treatment as well. C'mon Audible! You are on to something here! Keep them coming!

    If you can't find the time to do it right, how will you find time to do it over

    I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.

    Story
    "Disapointed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would definitely change how this book was narrated. The different characters seemed to have different levels of volume and it took a while to get a comfortable listening volume. I either became used to it or it got better farther into it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Familiar characters. I am a big fan of the old time radio The Shadow series and this reminded me a lot of that.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    maybe


    Did Partners of Peril inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I think this could have been narrated better
