You'll hear the soft, lazy voice of a dame who's been around, and you'll meet up with a beautiful heller. You'll learn the lurid secrets of a man's locked past, and you'll prowl dark alleys with two men--two men turned hunters. And you'll wonder--why Ed and his Uncle Am didn't level with the cops; what business a gang would have with Ed's dead father; and where the killer thought the hunters would go wrong. Here are your answers, in this fast-spinning, two-fisted mystery about thugs, molls, and carnival folks. Download and start listening now!

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Kearns | 8/15/2013

    " Solid, straight-down-the-middle noir. It was a 3 star for the plot mechanics and characterizations, but in the last 10 pages, the philosophical point was brought home quite well, easily bumping it right on up to a 4. A fabulous clipjoint, indeed.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 12/10/2012

    " Wonderfully fun little book. The first in the Ed and Am series, it makes me plan to hunt down the other six novels and the short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johnny | 10/2/2012

    " Part hard-boiled mystery novel, part coming-of-age story, this under-appreciated novel is a great example of Fredric Brown's seemingly endless imagination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy Vasseur | 9/11/2012

    " Classic Noir again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 8/2/2012

    " Started out really good...and went downhill really fast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R.L. | 6/28/2012

    " Many reviewers refer to this is a "hard-boiled" or "noir" mystery. I suppose it is, but to me, its main value was in the dialog and description of sets, scenery and costumes--all very evocative of lower-class Chicago in the 1940s. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R-220 | 3/18/2012

    " It is one of the my favorite mystery, the first work of Ed Hunter series. Ed Hunter lost his father, because the father was murdered. Ed and his uncle Am track down the killer. I love Ed's growth story and starting on the journey ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 8/3/2011

    " Winner of the 1948 Edgar for best first. Both a mystery and coming of age tale. "
