One of the definitive detectives of American crime fiction comes to radio -- with a matchless mind, a relentless eye for detail, and just a bit of an attitude. That's Philo Vance -- S.S. Van Dine's famous amateur criminologist of the 1920s and 1930s, ready for radio in the 1940s.
Jackson Beck stars as Vance, with Joan Alexander as secretary Ellen Deering, and George Petrie as District Attorney Markham in sixteen mind-challenging mysteries!
Includes a program guide by radio historian Elizabeth McLeod.
