Adventures by Morse was a syndicated adventure series produced, written, and directed by Carlton E. Morse shortly after NBC canceled his I Love a Mystery series. The 30-minute program was heard in 1944-45 during a 52-week run. The tales covered such areas as espionage, kidnapping, and murder along with secret Nazi bases, snake worshipers, and voodoo.

It's a story tailor-made for the nightly news: Dylan Meserve and Michaela Brand, young lovers and fellow acting students, vanish on the way home from a rehearsal. Three days later, the two of them are found in the remote mountains of Malibu, battered and terrified after a harrowing ordeal at the hands of a sadistic abductor.

Derace Kingsley's wife ran away to Mexico to get a quickie divorce and marry a Casanova-wannabe named Chris Lavery. Or so the note she left her husband insisted. Trouble is, when Philip Marlowe asks Lavery about it he denies everything and sends the private investigator packing with a flea lodged firmly in his ear. But when Marlowe next encounters Lavery, he's denying nothing - on account of the two bullet holes in his heart.
