The Green Hornet debuted on a Detroit station, WXYZ, on January 31, 1936, and later aired on the Mutual and ABC Blue networks until its final broadcast on December 5, 1952. The masked crime fighter was the secret identity of newspaper publisher Britt Reid, who relied on his valet, Kato, and a supercharged roadster, the Black Beauty. Al Hodge portrayed The Green Hornet during the series' first seven seasons, followed by Donovan Faust, Robert Hall, and Jack McCarthy. The series was created by the same team that brought The Lone Ranger to the air.
"Radio's most popular juvenile adventure program." (James S. Olson, Historical Dictionary of the 1950s)
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What other book might you compare Escape for Revenge to and why?
I got the episode "Paid in Full" is another high quality episode in the same collection, what a bonus!
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The realism of the episode might be lost as the slower pace of reading it may not fit as well as the live actors and narration.
