2¢ Worth: Dead Men Kill is an old fashioned, Mickey Spillane style mystery complete with over the top fight scenes and dangerous fainting dames. It isn't going to be for everyone but fans of old black and white movie mysteries are guaranteed to a get a kick out of it.
Whodunit: The case of dead men coming to life and killing their bosses kept me guessing right up to the very end.
Wooed: Yay for tons of old slang!
Whippersnappers: Expect mentions to murder and some minor stereotyping that is consistent with the time period, but no cursing, sex, or foul language.
Words aloud: This was one of those rare times that I listened to an audio and read bits and pieces of it. By chance I had both copies. But seriously the print version doesn't hold a torch to the audio. With the different voices and sound effects it feels like an old 40s radio show. I loved it and will definitely be picking up some of the discounted audios the next time I have a road trip.
