    About “The Final Case,” Doctor Scofield, Captain Underhill’s personal physician, comments, “A most interesting case study. It is both sad and ironic that the mental affliction Captain Underhill used to pretend to suffer from: that of being senile, was ultimately the very thing that laid him low. And yet, in the annals of crime solving, if this final case does nothing else, it proves the kind of natural-born sleuth my good friend, Waverly, was.”

    Listeners are transported back to St. James Hall, Piccadilly, first to eavesdrop backstage on a heated discussion between George Dolby, Dickens’ road manager, and his physician, Dr. Beard, about whether the Chief should be allowed to go on stage to perform yet again another strenuous reading of his murder scene, which although popular, is now poising a grave risk to the Chief’s own health. For Dickens, these performances have become something of an obsession.

    For years an anonymous Cape Cod mural painter has been adorning the underpass to the Barnstable Village railroad bridge with images of scantily clad nudes in Classical poses. An activity which, although many in the Village enjoy them and approve, is also illegal and a source of irritation—particularly to nearby neighbor, Otis Narwhal, who feels the paintings go too far. With night-vision binoculars he sits on his porch at night, hoping to spy the Phantom Artist at work and report her to the local police.

    An epic river story and suspense thriller. If Mark Twain and Aaron Copland had gotten together to create an American river story for radio, it would probably sound something like this. Richard Thomas gives a memorable performance as river pilot Jeb Hardy, hired to deliver 15 barges and 40 million pounds of coal upriver on the Ohio to a power plant above Cincinnati. What begins as an idyllic rafting trip turns into a pilot’s worst nightmare.
