Another Fine Performance

I have been very pleased with these dramatized readings of the old Shadow pulps, and this one is no exception.

When a businessman of note disappears after returning from a trip to Russia, the Shadow sets his forces to track the man down. After discovering his location, the Shadow discovers a plot to carry out a great theft and has mere days to make his way back and forth across the Atlantic to deliver justice.

The Romanoff Jewels is one of the stories that showcases the Shadow’s adaptability in foreign lands as well as in New York. It’s always interesting to hear of scenarios wherein the Shadow’s skills are put to a new challenge.

The cast once again put forth fine performances. Like with the others, they are just serious enough to offer tension, yet have an undeniable cheese factor that makes them just the slightest bit humorous, reminiscent of the radio shows of the 30s.

As a long time Shadow fan, is brings me great joy that the books are getting some recognition almost a century since their inception.
