A Throwback To Old B/W Hollywood Detective Movies
“Dick Danks” is a collection of short stories involving private investigator, Dick Danks. The short stories are basically interconnected cases. The audio book has the feel of old black and white Hollywood detective movies or old time radio mysteries. If that’s something you think you would enjoy, then this book is for you.
Narrator, Scott Ellis, does a decent job with the material, but I personally didn’t care for his voice. I know that’s a subjective thing, but he just didn’t work for me. Also, for some strange reason, when I listened to part of this audio book on my computer, it seemed to play at a slightly slower speed than when I listened to it on my cell phone. The Audible app on my android phone has the ability to play a book at several different speeds so I checked to make sure I had the playback speed on normal. It turns out I did. The Audible cloud player I use on my computer doesn’t have the ability to change the playback speed so I’m not sure what the heck was going on. I just know I couldn’t enjoy the slower speed playback from my computer.
Over all, I enjoyed the “Dick Danks” collection. I just wasn’t bowled over by it. Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Blast.

Lovers of old time radio will love this
Any additional comments?
If you enjoy the detectives of old time radio you will love this book. The narration is great and you feel transported to a time before books were full of bad language and gore.
