Publisher's Summary

"It all began with my month's layoff between galactic service assignments. I reached Marsport for the ususla three-day stopover. Before landing, I received a spacegram from my wife, Hilda, saying she would stay and wait for me on Earth. So I called Flora and set a date. "As I stepped out of the Video Booth, the first whiff of catastrophe nudged itself up to me. Rog Crinton said, 'Red Emergency Alert - come with me. Jack Hawk is dead. The galactic drug menace and his killer is on his way here.'"

What a ripoff!

Love Asimov! Loved the story. The narrator was good. However, I'd already been thinking that I could use a little less orchestra music with my short story, when, about halfway through the recording, the story was over and the next half hour or so was that same orchestral music. I kept fast-forwarding, thinking it had to be over soon and there would be another story. No--I was wrong. If I want music, I will buy music. I come to Audible for literature. At least I'm glad I only paid $4.95 instead of wasting a credit.

Terrible production ruined the story

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This particular production company (Ziggurat) seems to think that terrible music and sound might somehow make for a better recording - it doesn't. It was impossible for me to get past the first 10 min of this recording. Simply awful! I now check to see who made the recording avoid anything from this company.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If I could have gotten through it, the story might have been OK. But...

Appauling.

I bought this thinking I would get a range of stories, It has a drum and electronic music backing track that runs throughout and many many minutes are just tuneless musak. Do yourself a favour and buy the book, and read it. I cannot in all honesty recommend this. I can't seem to leave a no star rating.
