Murder by Experts
I was in California visiting my dad last week and decided to fly to Sacramento instead of Oakland for San Francisco. This turned out to be a great idea - not just because the fare was way cheaper - but also because the car I rented (a very nice Ford Escape), has Sirius/XM Radio. So I got to listen to Greg Bell's Old time radio on Sirius/XM Radio Channel 82.
This series was a lot like Crime Club - in that it had different authors for each episode. I heard the episode, "Two Can Die As Cheaply as One" from April 17, 1950. This was penned by Milton Lewis. This is a great mystery and has great dialogue between the husband and wife pair that solve the murder. At one point she tells her husband to "Do as the man says, you know that your brain is not large enough to hold bullets". Add to that a funny visit to a funeral director who is running a $75 deal, and you have a very entertaining mystery on the radio.
