Description by

In the early days of radio, producers, directors and scriptwriters were well aware of the listening public's fascination with subject matter that was tinged with almost any form of wrongdoing. Stories that compared right and wrong, portrayed crime and punishment, and showed the characters upholding law and order kept audiences of every age hooked on this type of program for more than thirty years.

This work covers over 300 syndicated radio mystery and adventure serials that aired in the early or middle twentieth century. To be included in the book, a series must have included one or more characters who regularly appeared in occupations or avocations that fought against espionage, theft, murder, and other criminal activities. Each entry includes the name of the series, air dates (stations and times are noted), the sponsor, extant episodes, cast information (such as the directors, writers, composers, announcers, lead actors and supporting actors), and a brief synopsis.
