THE SUNDAY PIGEON MURDERS Bingo Riggs and Handsome Kusak, Book 1

by | Read by Johnny Heller

Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1942

This audiobook is lowbrow, high energy, and absurdly good fun. Johnny Heller narrates a 1940s-style mystery in a voice suggestive of tough guys in old detective movies. There are references to lugs, thugs, swell guys, and doll-faced dames. Protagonists Bingo and Handsome are scam artists out for a quick buck (or maybe a quarter million bucks), but they are kindhearted and two of the nicest kidnappers a listener could ever hope to meet. Heller also portrays many other zany characters, employing a range of timing and vocalization. One of his most memorable characters is the eccentric Mr. Pigeon, whose life insurance policy makes him both vulnerable and valuable. This audiobook can be characterized as either hopelessly dated or retro-chic. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
