On New Year's Day, 1976, radio listeners were introduced for the first time to a former Chicago cop turned hard-luck private detective named Harry Nile, the brainchild of mystery fan Jim French, who created the 1950s-era character for a one-time-only broadcast. But audiences wanted more, and so began 26 years of episodes.
Here are 17 new adventures of Harry Nile, starrying Larry Albert as Harry.

Harry Nile is a great radio program for those of us who enjoy using our imaginations to "see" a story as our grandparents did. I love old time radio and this program bridges the gap to yesteryear wonderfully.
I have become addicted to Harry Nile's adventures. Started lessening to them on Book Radio, and just thought it might be fun to get a volume. I have down loaded the other 6 volumes and now have my 10 y.o. daughter addicted as well. Great story telling and mostly enjoy that all the stories take place in Washington state.
Jim French is not always in the stories but Larry Albert is a great Harry Nile.
So many, not too sure.
I'd recommend this book to a friend. It's easy to listen to, has good sound affects and simple story lines.
Jim French's voice is pleasing to my ear, medium range and doesn't get to high. I have sensitive hearing so that's important to me. I usually listen to this at night to go to sleep.
There are 6 short stories, none of them are better than the other, they are all of the same caliber.
There are no extreme highs or lows in this book, it's a very simple old fashioned detective series set in the 50's.
