Arthur Sippo writes:
Will Murray tells a great Doc Savage story and really 'channels' Lester Dent's spirit and talent. The performance by Michael McConnohie is stunning. He does so many voices so well it is almost like a full cast production! The production values are high. The presentation is superior. A superb product all around. I eagerly await the next volume in this series.

From Littleton, Colorado, Dale writes:
Absolutely fantastic! The narrator did all kinds of different voices for all the characters and kept everything very well paced. All audiobooks should be like this one.
