Book reviews - The Adventures Of Sam Spade

The Adventures Of Sam Spade


Author: Dashiell Hammett

Steely. Seasoned. Smart-alecky. The storied San Francisco snooper is back!

Share the exciting exploits of Dashiell Hammett's famous gumshoe through this thrilling 6-hour collection. Featuring all of the episodes from both our Volume One and Volume Two collections, Howard Duff and Steve Dunne star as Sam Spade in 12 madcap capers from 1946 - 1951. As crass as he is charismatic, this dynamic detective attracts a curious clientele - gentlemen who tend to drop dead and ladies who are drop-dead gorgeous. Each case leads our wise-cracking detective to the danger of the dark alley - and leads you to discover the timeless appeal of this hard-boiled hero. But, fair warning... a knock on Spade's door can mean wild goose chases, scams, and set ups of the seriously deadly variety.

Once again, these digitally restored and remastered episodes are available from the Radio Spirits Archives Collection - featuring re-releases of our most popular discontinued collections.
