Follow the noir adventures of Harry Nile in these short radio dramas produced in Seattle since the 1970's. The writing is crisp, the plots intriguing, and the price [on sale] cannot be beat! These show what America is capable of producing on a low budget [a local station] with high aspirations. Looking forward to the next installment [especially if it goes on sale!].
Look for this title to pop up on sale and grab it at discount! The cast does credit to small-town British evils, with even pacing and careful plot development. A murder occurs in wintry conditions, and possible culprits abound!
This quite-short radio drama honors the Locked-Room genre and is well worth the price, especially when offered on sale.
This is the 4th Paul Temple dramatization I've listened to. They are all enjoyable, although so far I haven't given any a top rating. Two have been too bloody (body counts that Quentin Tarantino would envy), and two, including this one, develop a little too slowly with vague clues, but they are still enjoyable to listen to as I take my dog for a leisurely suburban walk. For all the laughing and clanking of cocktail glasses, there really is no wit or humor to these, so these are definitely not Nick and Nora. There's not much of a clue trail in these, it's more guesswork. And, Steve (Mrs. Paul Temple) is always in the backseat in terms of taking any action, thinking things through, and reacting to a bad situation (she'll scream and Paul will figure things out). With all that said, the acting is really good, the production and sound effects are excellent, and the characters, other than the leads, are all nicely shady and suspicious.
In ".. the Lawrence Affair" there are suspicious deaths in a seaside village where Paul Temple has gone to work on his next novel, but instead he gets caught up in the mystery. The setting bounces back and forth from the village to London. It's not as bloody as some, but not as fast-paced either, but overall it was enjoyable to listen to.
