Mydworth's Excelsior Radio Company is world-famous for its expensive radio-phonographs. But suddenly the Excelsior delivery lorries start being hijacked, and the very future of the company is in doubt.

When Harry and Kat are brought in to help, they decide to go undercover to solve the crimes and soon discover there are many more secrets to this mystery than meets the eye...

Deadly Cargo

As this series of stories continues with Deadly Cargo I continue to enjoy the story, the characters and the narrator. The short story format is perfect for filling in when time is short, but, I do wish a longer...or maybe more frequent “next” in the series was there to begin, when the current one finishes.

only read if you don't mind

there are a few points where you will be yelling at the author " why invent such stupid Heroes". questions they didn't think to ask. Even of themselves.

but worst of all: set up a sting and not have the police standing by. just wait till it all falls apart and then Rush miles to the nearest telephone? Really?

Good story but

For some reason the story made kat and harry a bit less on the ball than I’d expect. They seemed more like amateurs than seasoned investigators. Seemed odd to me. The rest was good.

Good, But Not As Good as Previous Books.

Story was too simple. Had to come back a few times to finish it.
Harry's solo escapade totally unbelievable he was allowed to do it alone. The speed of Kat's driving must have been supersonic!
Interesting concept but....something missing. Can't put my finger on it.

Another wonderful little tale

I find these little stories wonderfully addictive, the adorably cute relationship between Sir Harry and his American Lady are just delightful to listen to especially when read by such a voice!
