The plot of Partners of Peril and much of the action is almost identical to "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", the very first Batman story in Detective Comics #27, which appeared some years later. In fact the creators of Batman acknowledged they drew their inspiration for the Caped Crusader from this classic Shadow story.

Original Pulpy Goodness Given a Fresh Spin!
This plays like a cross between a traditional audiobook and an old time radio show. Not quite either, this is the best multicast performance I've ever seen from Audible Studios. Enriched with sound effects, music, and few little tricks that harken back to the days of the Shadow radio show, this one is a tremendous amount of fun. Now, you have to understand what you are getting here. This is an original pulp novel from the 30's so the prose is a bit over the top, but fun? Oh boy, is this fun. Unleash your inner 10 year old for a few hours and enjoy this. I certainly hope Audible studios does more of these performances/readings with a full cast. There are more than 300 novels featuring the Shadow to choose from and the Doc Savage stories would lend themselves to this kind of treatment as well. C'mon Audible! You are on to something here! Keep them coming!

Finally! Classic Shadow Pulp on Audiobook
I was so surprised to see this up on audible. I never understood why there were no audiobooks of The Shadow Pulp novels. Hopefully this is just the beginning. Bring on the remaining 324 books!
