    Grand Master Elmore Leonard is justifiably acknowledged as “the best writer of crime fiction alive” (Newsweek)—and, in fact, one of the very best ever, alongside other all-time greats like John D. MacDonald, Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain, and Robert Parker. But he has also many acclaimed masterworks of American western fiction to his credit—including Hombre, the basis for the classic Hollywood motion picture starring Paul Newman. Set in Arizona mining country, Hombre is the tale of a white man raised by Indians, who must come to the aid of people who hate him when their stagecoach is attacked by outlaws. As thrilling as his contemporary novels of crime, double-cross, and murder in Detroit and Miami, Hombre is Elmore Leonard at his riveting best—no less than one would expect from the creator of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Justified).

    The Whistler was one of radio’s top mystery programs airing from May 16, 1942 until September 22, 1955, sponsored by the Signal Oil Company. The Whistler was an ominous narrator who opened each episode with: “I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak.” The opening dialog was heard over the echo of footsteps and a haunting signature thirteen-note theme, whistled each week by Dorothy Roberts. The stories followed an effective formula in which a person’s criminal acts were typically undone by their own missteps. The Whistler narrated the story, often commenting directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective. One of the show’s trademarks was the ironic twist endings that helped serve as a payoff for the listener. Bill Forman held the title role of host and narrator the longest. Others who portrayed the Whistler include Gale Gordon (later starring in I Love Lucy), Joseph Kearns (Mr. Wilson in television’s Dennis the Menace), Marvin Miller (later starring on television as Michael Anthony in The Millionaire), Bill Johnstone (The Shadow on radio from 1938 to 1943) and Everett Clarke. The twelve half-hour episodes starring Bill Forman included here with the date of broadcast, are:“Strange Sisters” (28 Jan 1946)“Panic” (4 Feb 1946)“Six Letter Word for Death” (11 Feb 1946)“Murder in Haste” (25 Feb 1946)“Terror Stricken” (8 Apr 1946)“Smart Boy” (15 Apr 1946)“Ambassador of Death” (16 Jun 1947)“Beyond Reasonable Doubt” (16 Jul 1947)“Whispered Verdict” (13 Aug 1947)“Curtain Call” (27 Aug 1947)“A Question of Murder” (4 Aug 1948)“Payment in Full” (1 Sept 1948)

    They came at night — the clouds of blood-thirsting, poisonous vampire bats — led by a strange man-thing who flew high in the black sky, directing their horrible slaughter. Blood was their desire, and they sucked it from the veins of helpless infants, from the white throats and breasts of frantic women, from the hands and faces of terrorized men. While the authorities doubted and dallied, one man — Richard Wentworth, that brilliant aristocrat who, as the dread Spider, strikes terror in the Underworld — realized that this was another of the devastating onslaughts of lawless genius. Never before was the Spider so badly handicapped. With his beloved Nita captive, his loyal servants out of the battle, himself unarmed and pursued by law and criminal, he must fight the greatest battle of his life when every chance seems lost and every hope is gone..!

    A noirish crime novel set in rural Arkansas from award-winning author C. B. McKenzie. Bob Reynolds doesn’t recognize the body in the creek, but he does recognize the danger of it. He’s a newcomer to town, not entirely welcome and not entirely on good footing with the sheriff. So far, he’s kept his head down, mostly over the bar at the Crow’s Nest. But he has other interests than drinking and spending his inheritance, including one that goes by the name Tammy Fay Smith and who may have caught the sheriff’s eye as well. Bob Reynolds would rather pretend he never saw the body, but when it disappears he begins to doubt what little he knew about this secretive town, one that seems to become more unwelcoming by the day. But he can’t just forget the body, despite the advice he’s given to do so, and despite the evidence to suggest that he might be disappearing along with it. Following his acclaimed, Edgar-nominated debut, C. B. McKenzie’s Burn What Will Burn will appeal to fans of such literary crime authors as Daniel Woodrell, Tom Franklin, Joe R. Lansdale, and Nic Pizzolatto.

    Damon Runyon was a newspaperman and writer. He was best known for his short stories celebrating the world of New York City’s Broadway that grew out of the Prohibition era. He created a little world of characters that live on even today in such classic movies as Little Miss Marker and Guys and Dolls, both based on Runyon’s stories. Actor Alan Ladd’s Mayfair Productions brought Runyon’s short stories to radio in the early 1950s. Each episode of The Damon Runyon Theatre is told through the eyes of a hoodlum with a heart of gold named “Broadway,” who takes the listener inside the world of some of the Big Apple’s toughest yet most charming perpetrators. Broadway and the many thugs, touts, dames, and palookas he encounters speak in a thick present-tense Brooklynese that is a delight for the listener to hear. John Brown played Broadway, and the supporting casts were a who’s who of radio, including William Conrad, Alan Reed, Frank Lovejoy, Sheldon Leonard, Hans Conreid, Anne Whitfield, and Ed Begley. The series made a brief transition to television. Included here are the following episodes, which aired from October 1950 to January 1951: “The Hottest Guy in the World”“All Horseplayers Die Broke”“Princess O’Hara”“For a Pal”“A Piece of Pie”“Barbecue”“The Brain Goes Home”“Hold ’Em Yale”“Old Em’s Kentucky Home”“Blood Pressure”“Lonely Heart”“Broadway Complex”

    Here are original broadcasts of the old-time radio show featuring amateur detective Boston Blackie Created by author Jack Boyle, Boston Blackie was a master safecracker and hardened criminal who served time in a California prison. Rehabilitated, he decided to use his knowledge of the underworld to fight crime as an amateur detective. Known as “an enemy to those who make him an enemy, friend to those who have no friend,” Boston Blackie’s exploits were adapted to film, radio, and television. While investigating cases, Blackie would invariably encounter harebrained Police Inspector Faraday and always solve the crime before Faraday could. The initial friction between Blackie and Faraday gave way as the series continued and Faraday came to recognize Blackie’s talents, occasionally even requesting his assistance. Blackie dated Mary Wesley, and for the first half of the series, his best pal Shorty was on hand. Boston Blackie is played by Richard Kollmar in these twelve exciting episodes, which aired between December 1946 and March 1947: “Mary, Registered Nurse”“Police Impersonator”“The Derailed Gold Train”“Carl Browning Cleaning Shop”“The Search for Jim Gary”“Jacques Pierre and the Diamonds”“Seven Years’ Bad Luck for Florence Wells”“Joe Delivers the Goods”“Larry ‘The Kid’ vs. Savinni”“The Tenth Street Gym and the Stolen Car Ring”“Sam Fisher’s Past”“The Horseroom Thefts of Boston Blackie”

    Mr. District Attorney came to radio in 1939 and focused on a crusading DA named Paul Garrett. Created, written, and directed by former law student Ed Byron, the series was inspired by the early years of New York governor Thomas E. Dewey. It was Dewey’s public war against racketeering which led to his election as governor and enabled him to run for the presidency of the United States. Phillips H. Lord, the creator of Gang Busters, helped Byron develop the concept and coined the title. Dwight Weist was radio’s first Mr. District Attorney. With the help of his sidekick, Len Harrington, and his secretary, Edith Miller, Mr. District Attorney proved each week to be “champion of the people—guardian of our fundamental rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!” Near the end of its radio run in the early 1950s, the series made a transition to television with the current radio cast reprising their roles. Episodes included are: “The Fifteen-Year-Old on Trial,” “The Joy Ride Murder,” “The Murderous Hitchhiker,” “The Staircase Killer,” “The Charity Killer,” “The Hit and Run Killer,” “The Desert Killer,” “The Missing Corpse,” “The Bank Killer,” “Knifing in the Park,” “Hungry Hobo,” and “Phony Confessions.”

    Everyone goes to Finnegan’s … It’s a pub in lower Manhattan, run by the Finnegan family for generations and now owned by Kieran and her three brothers. Kieran Finnegan, who still works there whenever she can, has become a criminal psychologist—a fitting reaction, perhaps, to her less-than-lawful past. Meanwhile, New York’s Diamond District has been hit by a rash of thefts. No one’s been killed—until now. FBI agent Craig Frasier is brought in to investigate; he and Kieran meet at a jewelry store in the middle of a heist. She’s there to “unsteal” a flawless stone taken by her light-fingered youngest brother as an act of vengeance. He’s there to stop the gang. But the police and FBI soon discover that there are two gangs of diamond thieves, the original and a copycat group of killers. And the second group seems to think their scheme is as flawless as the stones they steal. Thrown together by circumstance, drawn together by attraction, Kieran and Craig both end up working on the case. Unfortunately, there’s more and more evidence that, somehow, the pub is involved. Because everyone goes to Finnegan’s.

    He’s just seven years old. He’s your son. You wave goodbye to him one morning as he disappears into the swirling fog. And then he is gone. Forever. This gripping historical murder mystery, based on fact, is set in Bradford, England, 1888 during the Victorian era. It explores the horrific murder of Johnny Gill; a murder and mutilation so gruesome, it stuns a nation. Even hardened detectives are affected by its savagery, swiftly comparing it to the work of Jack the Ripper. Who Killed Little Johnny Gill? is Kathryn McMaster’s debut historical crime fiction novel. It is a page-turner that immediately immerses you in a maelstrom of emotions, keeping you in suspense as Chief Detective Constable Withers and his dedicated team of British detectives try and gather sufficient evidence to bring a conviction against their suspect. In 1888, police procedures and knowledge of forensic science are rudimentary and juries are exposed to persuasive newspaper reports and public opinion. Will justice prevail, or will the guilty walk free?

    The internationally acclaimed author of Blood on Snow and the Harry Hole novels now gives us the tightly wound tale of a man running from retribution, a renegade hitman who goes to ground far above the Arctic circle, where the never-setting sun might slowly drive a man insane. He calls himself Ulf—as good a name as any, he thinks—and the only thing he’s looking for is a place where he won’t be found by Oslo’s most notorious drug lord: the Fisherman. He was once the Fisherman’s fixer, but after betraying him, Ulf is now the one his former boss needs fixed—which may not be a problem for a man whose criminal reach is boundless. When Ulf gets off the bus in Kåsund, on Norway’s far northeastern border, he sees a “flat, monotonous, bleak landscape … the perfect hiding place. Hopefully.” The locals—native Sami and followers of a particularly harsh Swedish version of Christianity—seem to accept Ulf’s explanation that he’s come to hunt, even if he has no gun and the season has yet to start. And a bereaved, taciturn woman and her curious, talkative young son supply him with food, the use of a cabin deep in the woods, a weapon—and companionship that stirs something in him he thought was long dead. But the agonizing wait for the inevitable moment when the Fisherman’s henchmen will show—the midnight sun hanging in the sky like an unblinking, all-revealing eye—forces him to question if redemption is at all possible or if, as he’s always believed, “hope is a real bastard.”

    Produced in New York, Murder at Midnight came to ABC Radio in September of 1946 and featured horror stories with supernatural twists. Raymond Morgan, a former Long Island minister who had left the cloth for the excitement of radio, was the foreboding host who each week uttered the lines: “Midnight, the witching hour when the night is darkest, our fears the strongest, and our strength at its lowest ebb. Midnight, when the graves gape open and death strikes.” Over its six-year run in syndication, Murder at Midnight had a relatively high production budget which helped it pull respectable audience shares. The supporting players were New York’s best, including Lawson Zerbe, Karl Swenson, Berry Kroeger, Lon Clark, Elspeth Eric, and Raymond Edward Johnson. Anton M. Leader directed the series and the scripts were by top writers, including Joe Ruscoll, Max Ehrlich, and Robert Newman. Episodes included are “The Dead Hand,” “The Man Who Was Death,” “The Secret of XR3,” “Wherever I Go,” “Trigger Man,” “Death’s Goblet,” “The Heavy Death,” “Nightmare,” “The Creeper,” “Murder’s a Lonely Business,” “The House Where Death Lived,” and “The Kabbalah.”
