Really enjoying old science fiction stories by Murray Leinster, read by Mark Nelson

(3.5 stars)

great job, Mr. Nelson, as always! thank you! good story, nice detail.

a bit wanting

(3.5 stars)

No specific order here & Spoiler Alert: The info leak portion could have been expanded (including other potential suspects) to negate the secretary's love interest seeming so much like an after thought. And too, the co-pilot feeding Joe insights felt very suspect to me. That & Joe taking credit for the co-pilot's insights (insights,the co-pilot could've proffered himself), seemed very self-serving. Also in that category; Joe's morbid desire for another (faceless) man's death, that he may have his place.

What an enjoyable story. The advertisements between some chapters were a surprise. They were forgotten instantly as the story was so good. Adventure, intrigue, action and hints of a love story, all mingled with technology, created a tale I didn’t want to end. Thank you Murray Leinster for showing excellence in the absence of profanity and sex. This was “my kind” of listening pleasure .
