    Story
    (388)

    Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street. Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be.

    Karen says: "Brit in the FBI #2 makes you look forward to #3!!!"
    "Completely unbelievable (in the bad way)"

    Story

    The voice acting was good, but it was wasted on this story. I can suspend my disbelief for a good thriller story, but the number of plot holes, psychological caricatures, plus unnecessary and preposterous technologies all combined made a hot hot mess.

    Radio Spirits is very pleased to present radio's greatest crime fighter, The Shadow, in this new collection of 18 digitally restored and remastered episodes selected from the classic series. Featuring Orson Welles, William Johnstone and Bret Morrison each in the title role, this set also includes the first release of two newly discovered and previously lost episodes starring Orson Welles as Lamont Cranston and The Shadow - "The Old People" and "The Vocie of the Trumpet".

    Ken says: "amazing"
    "Fun for historical context, but very dated"
    Overall

    The plot and character development are at the level of Scooby Doo and Inspector Gadget; there are many better-written modern stories out there. However, you can feel the innocence of the age in the writing (which comes with a solid dose of that age's sexism, unfortunately). What my wife and I found almost as interesting as the stories was that these recordings include the original radio advertisements, which is fascinating for anyone interested in media culture.
