It's a rainy night in postwar Seattle. There's a crime to be solved, and an investigator is needed. But it's a dangerous profession! Sometimes the source of a scream is elusive, sometimes a surveillance job goes south, and sometimes someone's got their gun sight set on you! From out of the Pacific Northwest come twenty-four more adventures produced by Jim French. Phil Harper stars as Harry Nile, with Pat French as his all-knowing assistant Murphy. It's new-time radio drama produced in the classic style.

Love these recordings, I have several packs, but there always seems to be at least one where one actor's voice is very, very quiet and can hardly be heard. Would think this would be caught in editing. Otherwise, great.
A pleasure to listen to and enjoy. If you have enjoyed any of the detective programs from the Golden Age, you will enjoy Harry Nile. You get to know the primary characters of Harry and his associate, Murphy, little by little as you listen to the shows. Jim French clearly could have written scripts during the Golden Age. I will continue to be one of the first to purchase each new box set of The Adventures of Harry Nile.
I ordered several Jim French CDs: The Investigators, Harry Nile Seattle Blues, Target:Harry Nile etc. The production, script and staging is very good . I'm disappointed in the audio. The lead character apparently has a dedicated mike and is easy to hear and understand. It seems the supporting actors share a mike or two and the audio level/volume from them is much lower than the lead characters level/volume. So you are riding the volume control almost constantly while listening, especially in the car. That is a little disappointing. Sometimes the supporting actors move away from the mike to simulate moving a distance and then sometimes are too faint to be intelligible. The sound effects are always at top volume.
