Summary

A laugh-out-loud communist-punching adventure!  

Sam Rockwell came home from the Second World War to work as a fledgling private investigator specializing in helping "Returns": recently deceased ghosts who've come back with unfinished business. Short on experience and long on the imitated swagger of the detectives found in his dog-eared collection of pulp fiction P.I. mysteries, the quick-witted Sam waits for his big break - and his chance to win the heart of Amelia, his Girl Friday.  

But when his no-nonsense father is murdered and becomes a Return himself, everything changes. Sam sets out to find his father's killer, only to find himself caught up in a madcap game of Cold War intrigue.   

Humorous and hard-boiled, 'til Death is a witty, feel-good throwback to the golden age of Hollywood noir.

Fallible, loveable Cold War supernatural P.I.

So entertaining! Wonderfully performed! Not only a fun listen, but many existential and even relationship issues had me pondering life in general. I love the supernatural, post-war America, and noir-detective genre; this is a cool blending of both. I really look forward to seeing these characters continue to deal with "returns" and soon.

Loads of fun

If you enjoy zany old-time radio detective stories, movies from the 1950's, smiling, chocolate milk, and punching communists, then this is the audiobook for you. I loved this and highly recommend it to everyone from tweens to the elderly. Can't wait for the next one.
