Publisher's Summary

Retired police captain Waverly Underhill and his sidekick, Doctor Scofield, uncover the truth in a story of greed and suspense. Heard on public radio, this is a contemporary tale in the classic tradition of The Shadow, with a full cast, original music, and sound effects.

Edgar Allan Crow and the Purloined, Purloined Letter
When identical twins discover a hoard of Edgar Allan Poe memorabilia, what's it worth on The Antiques Roadshow? An antiques dealer and a reformed con man both want to know. Fortunately, Captain Underhill and Dr. Scofield are also on hand at the convention center.

Excellent mystery series

If you enjoy mysteries or radio drama this is the series for you. The Captain Underhill mysteries from Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theatre are all entertaining listens. As the series progressed the mysteries and the use of the audio format became more ingenious and reward re-listening. The stories by Stephen Thomas Oney are surprising and the performances are great.

To be fair

I've heard many Cape Cod's over the years. Some are fantastic. The series as a whole is great. Underhill's should be listened to together and do have a loose order.
Good for short listening, but maybe too complex for heavy commute traffic. Not quite binaural but have basic sound effects and depth.

Probably not

What other book might you compare Cape Cod Radio Mystery Theater to, and why?

I woulkd compare this to paul Temple, and maybe Doroth L Sayers

Would you be willing to try another one of Full Cast’s performances?

Yes absolutley. These are my favoirite types of audiobooks.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

The story was very good but unfortunately the soundtrack sounded as if it had been recoreded with a microphone placed up against the radio with someone doing the houswork in the background !! Good effort but need to work on the sound quality.
