Publisher Comments:

The first audiobook of this classic of hard-boiled crime fiction
 
American heiress Miss Blandish is kidnapped and held by an organized gang led by the sadist Slim Grisson. Private detective Dave Fenner is hired to rescue her, and does so, but not without resort to bribery, torture, and murder. Written in 1939, the book inspired a 1944 essay by George Orwell, "Raffles and Miss Blandish," drawing conclusions from its popularity about a mood in the post-War British public of combined boredom and desensitization to horrific violence. Unabridged.

About the Author

James Hadley Chase (1906-1985) was the author of more than 80 novels, but No Orchids for Miss Blandish was his first and most famous, becoming one of the best-selling books of the 1930s and the basis of stage and film adaptations. Jeff Harding is an actor who has appeared in such shows as Father Ted and Life Is Wild. A prolific audiobook reader, he has recorded such high-profile bestsellers as the Bourne Trilogy and The Da Vinci Code.
