Publisher's Summary

The Viennese Strangler
Exactly as broadcast on April 9, 1945. “I wonder what other treasures this box contains,” Holmes said to Watson as they searched the belongings of a murdered Hungarian in the Vienna boarding house where they were staying. After a beautiful German pianist led them to the Hungarian, a case of blackmail, a Chinese actor, and a flirtatious soprano forced Holmes to put aside his violin and go undercover—for a date with a strangler.
The Notorious Canary Trainer
Exactly as broadcast on April 23, 1945. “The nearest thing we have to a corpse is a pair of dead canaries,” said Holmes, when a pleasant vacation was strangely interrupted by a suicide and a confession to a murder. Where is the victim? Two dead canaries lead Holmes and Watson on a twisting trail of deceit—to a very living killer.
