Publisher's Summary

Johnny has a way with the ladies, but will his last date be with death?

For free trips and a fat fee, Johnny Dollar descends into cases of missing money and missing men. But, what can he do when the bodies are walled up, washed up, and fallen down? When the jewels and the paintings are fake? And, when everything from trucks to trout to widows are on the loose? He'd better bring his gun.

I love Boy Bailey's voice and greatly enjoyed all of these stories! It brings to mind what my mother used to put on the radio when we were kids. I LOVE it!

Excellent variety of stories

Enjoyed all the episodes, as well as the "commercials." The fun facts about state flags were an unexpected bonus!

Almost a great audio.

Johnny Dollar has become one of my favorite radio shows. Its entertaining and I loved the hard boiled detective stories. Bob Bailey is also a great radio star. My only problem with this audio was what happened during the breaks in the show. Sometimes it's nice to listen to classic radio adds. But on most of radio plays breaks, instead of adds they played boring 3 minute documentaries. The favorite subject of these Education breaks is Americas state flags and the history of every flag of the Union. Anyone who has watched the TV comedy show the Big Bang theory, has probably seen Sheldon's blog Fun With Flags. The radio adds are a lot like the blog, but not at all funny. Now imagine your watching an exciting TV show like The Blacklist and instead of TV adds you get Fun with flags. After a while it will get a little tiring and makes it hard to enjoy your show. I want to be entertained, not educated.

Best of the old time radio detective series.

What did you love best about Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar?

Great collection of short dramatized stories straight from old time radio.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

These short stories are great to fill short periods of time, or back to back.

Any additional comments?

Bring me some more Johnny Dollar please.
