What the world needs is more men of action, wit and charm...men like Clark Gable. We've got it covered with Blacky Lee as The Iron Duke in the 1940s all-fiction magazine story by L. Ron Hubbard. Now available as an audio drama (unabridged) is presented to you by Galaxy Audio in this multicast audio edition with original music and cinematic-quality sound effects to capture your imagination and make the story come alive.
Blacky Lee is a lady’s man, a man’s man—and a wanted man, on the run in 1930s Europe, a price put on his head by the Nazis. Think Clark Gable—with larceny in his heart and a price on his head. But Blacky’s always got an angle—this time he’ll impersonate The Iron Duke, crowned head of a Balkan kingdom. He could win it all—the love of a country and a beautiful woman—if he’s willing to risk it all.
Awarded AudioFile’s Earphones Award 2009 for exceptional audio performance, The Iron Duke was professionally recorded and features AudioFile narrator of the year R.F. Daley and voice-over artists Lori Jablons, Jim Meskimen, Rick Pasqualone and Michael Yurchak.
