In the first tale, we follow two workmen on an intriguing journey to Coney Island, where the heartsick and disgruntled Tobin has his palm read. Who knew that palmistry could be so unpredictable? Secondly, a tale of kidnapping gone awry. A little boy, self proclaimed "Red Chief", is taken from his home, and has so much fun he never wants to go back, much to the chagrin of the kidnappers.

"Two O. Henry stories"
Besides The Ransom of Red Chief -- one of the best-known stories by O. Henry (The Gift of the Magi is another) -- this title also includes Tobin's Palm. Both are amusing, well-written, and extremely well narrated by Mr. Harrison. I enjoyed them both, probably more than if I had simply read the stories.
The concept of The Ransom of Red Chief was amusing. The actual story, however, was not clever and definitely not funny. Lame ending.
