The world-weary private investigator Harry Nile is one step ahead of the mob, but one step behind the bill collectors. That's why he takes pretty much any case he can catch - from robbery to kidnapping to murder.
Phil Harper stars as Harry in twenty-one mood-filled mysteries, aided and assisted by Pat French as Murphy, his secretary extraordinaire. This is classic radio noir for a new generation, created and produced by Jim French.

What's not to like here. A modern day production of a PI in the 40's. The cast is great & the plots are good. I have all the released volumes so far. Keep'em coming.
An entertaining modern representation of the old time detective radio shows.
I have purchased each of the Harry Nile box sets as they have been released and have thoroughly enjoyed every episode. Clearly, Jim and Pat French and their cast and crew would have been highly praised had they been in the business during radio's Golden Age. Though part of the earlier box sets, the episodes entitled "The War Comes to Harry Nile" are an interesting and intriguing look at life during WW II. In this box set, the outstanding story "Always Leave Them Wanting More" will do just that - leave you wanting more Harry Nile. I anxiously await the next box set.
Very good sound quality and superior sound effects. Some episodes are a rehash of older recordings
