Short Murder Mystery With An Unexpected Twist

Pamela Samuels Young and R.C. Bray does it again.... a wonderful snip pit of a story.

This is a murder mystery involving greed and jealousy. A real whodunit! This story will keep you guessing until the very end. In this story we have three viable suspects who all seemingly have something to gain from the death victim. Who did it? I didn't see that coming!

Wonderful 50 minute legal thriller

I suspect that writing really good short stories may be more difficult than writing longer stories. With Unlawful Greed Pamela Samuels Young has written a wonderful short legal thriller. As always, RC Bray's narration is superb.

Greed is tough to swallow...

This was a very short story but it was enjoyable. The author Pamela Samuels Young did a great job with this story. I've never read/listened to any of this author's stories before, until now but it was a well written short story. The story is basically about an upstanding L.A. lawyer who's found dead in his office. He's been married one to many times, also has been taking care of his son who's plenty old enough to take care of himself, and his partner in the law firm find themselves as suspects. But when it comes to money and love you sometimes end up crushing yourself. Its a fast paced story with not many clues. Do the two female detectives find the killer?

The narrator R.C. Bray did a fantastic job with holding my attention. R.C. kept the story flowing very nice. The narrator did a really good job with distinguishing the accents of each character. This isn't my normal genre but even so, I thought it to be well written and the performance of the narrator was enjoyable. I will definitely check out other stories that both the author has written and the narrator has done. If you're looking for a fast paced murder mystery then look no further because this one is it. I received this audio in exchange for an honest review.

1930's radio

Story line short which is good who done it. Reminds me the era before TV when everyone is sitting around the radio listening to this weeks story. Do I recommend it yes.
I was given a copy of this book for a free review.

Entertaining listen

Narrator R.C. Bray, as usual, is excellent. My first book by Pamela Samuels Young will not be my last. I wanted to get a grasp on Young's writing and for a couple of dollars, it was well worth the 50-minute listen. Highly recommended.

This is a perfect nugget for a short commute...

Let's get this out of the way first... This is a Short Story! Only about 5o min. and change on audio. If you're gonna buy the book, please don't give it a negative review because it's short!
I enjoyed this Pamela Samuels Young story and the surprise ending... and if you're a RC Bray fan (like me) this is a perfect nugget for a short commute...

How ironic

Great short story! I love all her books! It didn’t need more details because it was just what it intended to be.
