PUBLISHER’S SUMMARY: Sheriff Kyle of Deadeye, Nevada has traveled to the nation's capital to personally bring evidence against one of the state's wealthiest copper kings. But instead of giving his findings to the senator he's supposed to meet, Kyle discovers a trail of blood moments before he's knocked unconscious.
Kyle awakens to the flashing bulbs of reporters and harsh voices of police demanding to know why he's killed the popular politician. Things look particularly bleak—he's got no alibi, no memory of who knocked him out, and his five-inch knife is sticking out of the corpse—casting all suspicions his way.
ALSO INCLUDES THE MYSTERY STORIES "THEY KILLED HIM DEAD," "THE MAD DOG MURDER" AND "THE BLOW TORCH MURDER"

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Look out Mickey Spillane and Dashielle Hammet, here comes…L Ron Hubbard? That’s right, one of your favorite sci-fi writers is also well known for many other genres of fiction including adventure, western, and yes, even hard-boiled crime fiction.
Killer’s Law is a collection of four murder mysteries written by L Ron Hubbard in America’s golden age of pulp fiction. These stories herald from a time when the good guys sometimes had to cross the line to make sure justice was done, a time when a private dick’s ability to fight his way out of trouble was just as important as his ability to put clues together, and a time when there was always a beautiful dame handy to give a detective something to fight for.
Killer’s Law is just one more installment in Galaxy Audio’s continuing effort to memorialize in stunning audio the works of one of America’s most prolific writers. Galaxy Audio goes all out on these multicast audio productions. The top-notch cast includes R F Daley, Enn Reitel, John Mariano, Jennifer Darling, Bob Caso, and Tait Ruppert. Even if you don’t recognize all of these names, I assure you that they are some of the finest in the business. In addition, the music and sound effect enhancements are some of the best you’ll find in an audio drama.
If you thought L Ron Hubbard only wrote science fiction, think again! Pick up this collection and experience the some of the scope and talent of one of America’s great writers.
