American Sailor Kurt Reid is a hothead and a hard case-a man who hits first and asks questions later. Scrappy and rough around the edges, it's no wonder that when the ship's captain turns up dead, it's Reid who takes the rap. Falsely accused and under the gun, Reid jumps ship and vanishes into Shanghai-only to get caught in a web of intrigue, betrayal, and murder. In a world where nothing is what it seems and everything is for sale, he's soon out of his depth, drawn into a spy game in which the winner takes all ... and the loser takes a knife to the back. Will Reid live up to his reputation as the Spy Killer? He'll have to learn the rules fast, because with players like sexy Russian agent Varinka Savischna in the hunt, the game is about to turn as seductive as it is sinister. Give in to temptation and experience the intrigue, as the audio version of Spy Killer invites you to take part in a most provocative conspiracy. "Exceptional ... a genuinely entertaining listening experience." -Publishers Weekly * A Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award Winner

Professional reviews

"Tough guys, sexy girls, and vile villains: Yeah, it's the return of the pulps. Before he founded Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard wrote hundreds of stories in the 1930s-40s for pulp magazines. They're being released on disc for the first time, and "Spy Killer" is one of the coolest. The full-cast recording combines skillful actors, music, sound effects, and handsome packaging that belies the $9.95 price point. Lori Jablons, R.F. Daley, Shane Johnson, Kim Meskimen (who also directed), and Tait Ruppert deliver the tale of a burly American who jumps a freighter when he's framed for murder in pre-Communist China. Listeners hear every punch, gunshot, and scream and will be impressed at how well the story holds up. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
