Meet Jarrem Lee, Ghost Hunter (or as he prefers to call it, a psychical detective). With the help of college student Arthur Bennett, he embarks on a series of spine tingling and exciting adventures in the world of the dead.
Episode 09: "The Whitechapel Vampire" - A Vampire terrorizes London.
Episode 10: "The Tragic Revenge of Charles Maynard" - Can the human soul be captured?
Episode 11: "The Waxing of the Moon" - Is the client Lee is attempting to help actually a Vampire?
Episode 12: "The Last Stand" - Jarrem Lee takes on Dr. Ravenscroft to prevent him from bringing a demon back to life.

The Jarrem Lee stories are pure ear candy. My favorite tale in this volume is the Waxing of the moon, due to the nebulous nature of the creature.
I realized the best part of Jarrem Lee overall is the character's flexibility. And story flexibility, pulling new ideas from old themes.
Volume 3 is a solid entry into the Jarrem Lee series and it holds its own. Gareth Tilly's writing and Jerry Robbins and the CRT are top notch in whatever they do.
I appreciated the Waxing of the Moon is similar to Doyle's the Red Headed League, in overall scope to the Jarrem Lee character.
Being disabled, Audible is a big plus!
Each episode of Jarrem Lee is extremely well done, far exceeding any expectations I had. But with this volume, the show kicks into high gear. The ongoing plot points linking the individual stories together is quite interesting, especially the introduction to Lee's nemesis and his cult of followers. Add in vampires and demons, and you have a winner. I have an extensive collection of radio shows, old and new (Inner Sanctum, Lights Out, Frozen Frights, Beyond the Pale, etc.) and I am confident saying Jarrem Lee is one of the best ever produced. I only wish The Colonial Radio Players had made more than the six volumes that they did. Maybe with enough positive feedback they'll consider making more!
