I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t a perfect “Special Shelf” match for me, but I really liked it.

The cover matched the book style perfectly. It is old-fashioned looking just like the audiobook sounds.

“A fast-Paced Fun Read.”

This short story collection contains four short mystery stories from the era of the pulp magazines. The first story, KILLER’S LAW, was published in the September 1947 issue of NEW DEDECTIVE MAGAZINE. This collection also contains THEY KILLED HIM DEAD, the THE MAD DOG MURDER, and THE BLOW TORCH MURDER.

In KILLER’S LAW, Sheriff Kyle arrives in Washington D.C. from Deadeye, Navada, with paperwork against a certain criminal being investigated by Senator Morran. Bur upon reachi

Look out Mickey Spillane and Dashielle Hammet, here comes…L Ron Hubbard? That’s right, one of your favorite sci-fi writers is also well known for many other genres of fiction including adventure, western, and yes, even hard-boiled crime fiction.

Killer’s Law is a collection of four murder mysteries written by L Ron Hubbard in America’s golden age of pulp fiction. These stories herald from a time when the good guys sometimes had to cross the line to make sure justice was done, a time when a privat

This book was released by Galaxy Press as part of its line of books published during the golden age. In the first story of this book, Sheriff Kyle travels to Washington, DC to deliver evidence against a wealthy copper king to Senator Meringue. The sheriff is knocked unconscious and soon finds himself holding a weapon used to murder the Senator. He then must exonerate himself, although he has no alibi or idea what happened. A real trial for a true detective. In another, Detective Cassidy catches ...more

I received Killer's Law (Stories from the Golden Age) by L. Ron Hubbard as an early reviewers book giveaway. Killers Law is an awesome collection of stories from the Golden Age of Pulp stories. When I listened to this audio book I felt like a child of the 1930's sitting in front of an antique radio. (Who needs TV!) The stories in Killers Law are full of action and suspense. Pulp stories may not be "literally material" but they are just plain FUN! These stories took me back to an era I read about ...more

This is an enjoyable collection of four of Hubbard's crime stories, the title story from the September, 1947 issue of New Detective Magazine, and They Killed Him Dead, The Mad Dog Murder, and The Blow Torch Murder, all three of which originally appeared in 1936 issues of Detective Fiction Weekly. I preferred the three older tales; Killer's Law was very similar to another of Hubbard's titles (I can't remember it at the moment), in which a rural-Western sheriff comes to the big Eastern city and ou ...more

Return to a time when gumshoes walked the streets, criminals flaunted their crimes, and dames were ever present. L. Ron Hubbard wrote pulp fiction for his audience of readers, not for the critics, and his highly acclaimed work represents the fiction that was popular in the 1930s and 1940s. With gripping realism, the four short stories in this audio edition come alive with the various voices, music, and sound effects. Not for the squeamish, some of these murders are highly imaginative as well as ...more

Audio book: FANTASTIC! The realistic sounding sound effects and different voices made the story come to life. The audio and everything else was perfect! I didn't have the books on me, but it was still great. Without a doubt, Hubbard is an amazing author. His short stories are captivating and strong. Galaxy Audio has done a great job in fulfilling their name by using professional voice actors and original music that matches the mood of the story. They couldn't have done a better job. I wouldn't h ...more

This a great "Mob" story. You get a sense of the criminality and courage of those taking a stand to buck the "system".

I love the way Hubbard captures the "personality" of the characters in his descriptions. He paints a great picture and you feel like you know the person.

There were several short stories and each one was imaginative and very PULP.

If you have not yet tried the series, I do recommend this one. It is a fun story that will have your attention to the end.

This was my first experience with audio short stories and I enjoyed being able to listen to an entire story on the short drive between home and work and kid's schools. My daughter and I laughed out loud at some points during the stories. I wasn't sure what to expect but this was definitely a fun blast from the past.

A very fun quick paced who done it. A classic story starting with a mess of confusion in the beginning with everything getting sorted out to find the truth at the end.

One of 4 short murder mysteries in this audio.

Great during commute or just relaxing at home.

Old time radio feel with full cast and great sound effects.

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and ’40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginativ ...more
