"What's the matter? What is it?"
"It's another case for Nick Carter, Master Detective!"
Before Philip Marlowe, before Sam Spade, there was the father of all American private eyes: Nick Carter, Master Detective. Lon Clark stars as this two-fisted crime-fighting defender of justice in the 16 digitally remastered radio shows presented here.
Nick has deductive genius, a knack for disguises, and a fast right hook, all of which come in handy as he solves an interesting variety of cases. He also has a team that he can depend on: Secretary Patsy Bowen (Helen Choate and Charlotte Manson), newspaper reporter Scubby Wilson (John Kane), Police Sergeant Matty Mathieson (Ed Latimer), and garrulous old Waldo McGlynn (Humphrey Davis), who yearns for the good old days when crimes were solved with a swift swing of the nightstick.
