    One morning in April 1924, the Honorable Daisy Dalrymple Fletcher finds herself in a most unenviable position. Despite her best attempts to elude the inevitable, she must face her darkest fears and with all strength and courage she can muster, must confront the one person she has tried hardest to avoid—the dentist. But upon arriving for her appointment, she finds the waiting room deserted and adjoining examination room locked with no hint of either Dr. Talmadge or his nurse. Thinking to leave quietly, Daisy’s retreat is halted by the return of the nurse and, with the help of Mrs. Talmadge, the two begin searching for the inexplicably absent doctor. Exhausting all other possibilities, they resort to looking once again in the surgery where they find him stilling in his dentist’s chair with the nitrous mask strapped to his face, the tank of nitrous turned on full, a smile on his face and stone-cold dead. While the circumstances of his death are out of the ordinary, there’s no reason to suspect that it was anything other than a tragic, if inevitable, accident of a careless dope fiend. Certain that there is something more than happenstance and an accident involved in the dentist’s untimely death, Daisy is determined to uncover the truth behind a case of what she is certain is murder most foul.

    The dead don’t keep pets. So when animal behavior expert Pru Marlowe gets a call about a kitten, she doesn’t expect to find the cuddly creature playing beside the cooling body of prominent local lawyer David Canaday. Heart attack? His three adult daughters angrily blame drug interactions, feline allergies―and each other. And they begin to feud over their father, his considerable estate, and that cute ball of fluff. While the cause of death is pending, each sister has an ax to grind―and the arguments escalate when Canaday’s will is read. Pru’s special sensitivity to animals, which caused her to flee the cacophony of Manhattan for the quiet Berkshires, adds further problems. The local vet is overwhelmed as the animal hospital’s money runs out. There’s a needy Sheltie and some invasive squirrels, too. But the dead man’s kitten, his former partner, and his troublesome family keep drawing “wild-girl” animal psychic Pru back in. Despite the wry observations of her trusty tabby Wallis, now acting as guardian for the wrongfully accused kitten, and the grudging compliance of her cop boyfriend, this may be one time when Pru can’t solve the mystery or save the kitten that she wants to believe is innocent. A single witness knows the truth about that bright spring morning, but how far can Pru investigate without risking her own hidden tale?

    When Jerzy Schroeder, a shadowy gray-market hustler and aspiring crony capitalist, is murdered while Josie Kendall is hitting him up for a million dollars to help him cash in on alternative-energy funding, the police suspect her of adultery and her husband, Rafe, of homicide. Josie, who works for Majority Values Coalition, an “activist fundraising organization,” is a new but passionate Washington, DC, player. Rafe, long a Washington insider, is passionate about Josie and about supporting her learning curve on how Washington works. For Josie and Rafe, this isn’t a murder investigation but a political damage-control problem. They’ll need a full arsenal, since, as one capital insider points out, “A damage control strategy that hasn’t succeeded within thirty days has failed.” They attack the issue with an array of finely tuned skills: strategic leaks, manipulation of the media, judicious use of inside information, and a flexible attitude toward the truth―plus the assistance of Josie’s Uncle Darius, a veteran spin doctor with surprising connections, who is, luckily, out on parole. Along the way, Josie will have to decide whether there are ethical lines that even she won’t cross. In this House of Cards scenario, determining who actually murdered Schroeder is a low-priority problem, but Josie manages to do that as well. It’s all in a day’s—or, rather, thirty days’—work.

Along with her friend, Jack Harmon, she will be drawn to the secret spaces of Kew, into the obsessive world of botany, and towards an unsolved murder that has lain dormant for decades.

    These twelve exciting episodes take you to the San Francisco waterfront as you follow Pat Novak as he solves some shady crimes. Pat Novak, for Hire is set on the San Francisco waterfront and depicts the city as a dark, tough-as-nails jungle where the main goal is survival. Not a detective by trade, Novak owns a boat shop on Pier 19 where he rents out boats and does odd jobs to earn money while dishing out sarcasm and colorful metaphors. The set up begins with an unknown person asking Novak to perform an unusual or risky job. In need of money, Novak reluctantly accepts and soon finds himself in hot water, usually involving a dead body and a femme fatale. Then Police Inspector Hellman, played by Raymond Burr, is called to the case. Hellman hates Novak and badly wants to lock him up and throw away the key. While solving the crime, Novak usually relies on the help of his friend, drunken ex-doctor Jocko Madigan, played by Tudor Owen. Pat Novak, for Hire began in 1946 as a regional radio show produced at KGO in San Francisco and starred Jack Webb in the title role, with scripts by Webb’s friend Richard L. Breen. When Webb moved to Los Angeles in 1947, Ben Morris replaced Webb as Novak. In a later network version, Jack Webb resumed the role, along with Breen as scriptwriter. Pat Novak, for Hire lasted until 1949, when Jack Webb turned his attention to the series that would make him a star, Dragnet. The twelve episodes in this collection, with the actor in the role of Pat Novak and the date of its broadcast, are the following: “John Brown Gambling Ring” with Ben Morris (3 August 1947), “The Mysterious Set of Books” with Ben Morris (10 August 1947), “Death in Herald Square” with Ben Morris (30 November 1947), “The Jack of Clubs” with Jack Webb (20 February 1949), “Marcia Halpern” with Jack Webb (27 February 1949), “Reuben Callaway’s Pictures” with Jack Webb (13 March 1949), “Rory Malone” with Jack Webb (20 March 1949), “Joe Candano” with Jack Webb (27 March 1949), “Shirt Mix-Up at the Laundry” with Jack Webb (9 April 1949), “Sam Tolliver” with Jack Webb (23 April 1949), “Rita Malloy” with Jack Webb (1 May 1949), “Geranium Plant” with Jack Webb (15 May 1949).

    From the show called “the best of the best of radio’s golden age” come these six suspenseful episodes of Johnny Dollar’s far-flung private investigations, starring Bob Bailey in thirty quarter-hour episodes. First heard on network radio in 1948, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar chronicled the adventures of freelance insurance investigator Johnny Dollar, “the man with the action-packed expense account.” For fifteen years, it was one of the most popular detective shows on the air, lasting until the final days of network radio drama in 1962. Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive calling on Johnny Dollar to investigate an unusual claim. His investigations usually required Dollar to travel to distant locales and often involved murder. The stories were recounted in flashback, as Dollar listed each line item from his expense account: “Item one, $3.75 cab fare to the airport.” Over the years, many actors portrayed Johnny Dollar, but in 1955 Bob Bailey took over as the series was switching to a new format in fifteen-minute installments Monday through Friday. While other radio shows were waning in the mid 1950s, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was at its peak. The episodes and their dates of broadcast are:“The Medium Well Done Matter” (14 – 18 May 1956)“The Tears of Night Matter” (21 – 25 May 1956)“The Reasonable Doubt Matter” (28 May – 1 Jun 1956)“The Indestructible Mike Matter” (4 – 8 Jun 1956)“The Laughing Matter” (11 – 15 Jun 1956)“The Pearling Matter” (18 – 22 Jun 1956)
