Flashing eyes and flashing knives - intrigue, mystery, and murder. It's time for another exotic adventure in postwar Cairo with Rocky Jordan, starring Jack Moyles as the handsome and sometimes cynical owner of the Cafe Tambourine, gathering place for fez-wearing diamond smugglers, black marketeers, gun runners, racketeers, and international thieves.
Lieutenant Ben Guthrie and Sergeant Matt Greb introduce lineups full of characters both heinous and hilarious. Go with them as they go after the most menacing of criminals in 16 gritty episodes from the 1950s, now in digitally restored sound. Radio greats Bill Johnstone, Wally Maher, and Jack Moyles are on the beat on the streets of a great American city. And things get tough when the witnesses are unreliable, unsure, unwilling - or dead.
Reminiscent of Humphrey Bogart's character Rick Blaine from the classic movie Casablanca, Rocky Jordan relocated to Cairo after being ousted from St. Louis by his enemies. Now living in North Africa, Rocky Jordan owns and operates a gin joint, the Café Tambourine, and finds himself involved in an assortment of mystery and intrigue endeavors while unwillingly moonlighting as a crime fighter.
