WINNER 2010 AUDIE AWARD FOR BEST ANTHOLOGY

In the1930s and '40s, Black Mask was the single most important magazine for the modern mystery field. In its pages writers such as Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Erle Stanley Gardner reshaped the established view of mystery fiction by creating the "hard-boiled" private eye. Now comes this series in which the toughest of tough detectives are vivified from its pages in atmospheric dramatizations for the listener. Watch this page for new episodes; see also Vol. 1 No. 2: The Maltese Falcon.
