That Sweet Little Old Lady by Randall Garrett (Free Audio Book)
Narrated by Phil Chenevert
Welcome to the world of the bizarre in this free audiobook edition of the Randall Garrett novel, The Sweet Little Old Lady. Published in 1959 and was serialized in the magazine Astounding Science Fiction from September to October of the same year.
Garrett’s twisted sense of humor is alive and well in this audiobook adaptation of his novel. His ability to combine completely ludicrous and odd scenarios with believable characters gives this story a much needed jolt. The story focuses on a top secret mission of skilled FBI Agent, Ken Malone. Malone has been tasked of tracking down a spy who is stealing valuable information from the Ultra Top Absolute Secret project.
The unknown spy openly mocks the FBI as he or she continues to easily steal data right from under their noses. The spy uses a still unknown method to steal information directly from the minds of the scientists themselves which has baffled and stumped the FBI. Of course, this is not a Randall Garrett tale without some weird occurrences. The strange comes in the form of a Sweet Little Old Lady who is in fact an immortal. Along with other insane characters, Ken Malone dives in head first into an upside down world of spy versus spy shenanigans.
