Publisher's Summary

In a thrilling case that takes Paul and Steve to exotic Egypt, Paul Temple is called in to investigate a mysterious murder. The twisting trail takes them from London to the back streets and nightclubs of Cairo. From 1938 to 1969, crime novelist and detective Paul Temple and his Fleet Street journalist wife, Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular serials. They inhabit a sophisticated, well-dressed world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women are chic and the men still wear cravats - and where Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard always needs Paul's help with a tricky case. Now, Paul Temple is being brought into the 21st century in this brand-new eight-part recording of a lost-archive Paul Temple mystery, starring Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson.

"Old Time" Radio

Dramatic shows were still being broadcast on radio when I was a child and I loved listening to them. By the time I was in grade school television was becoming the "go to" medium for scripted shows. I still enjoy listening to old radio dramas.

I did not enjoy this program as much as some of the earlier shows I have heard. Convoluted plots were part of the fun of this series. This story seemed a little repetitive to me. Many of the earlier shows ended with a cocktail party - this one doesn't. I was a little disappointed about that.

The acting and production are excellent.

If you like old radio shows, I'd recommend some the earlier episodes.
