The Kane Shadow: A Rear Window Murder

Orson Welles returns to that nasty town but while re-re-re-recording that radio commercial, he trips over a mic cable and has to rest his twisted ankle at friends on Powers Lake. And yes, Jeannette flies in to take care of Orson, in person! While sitting out back on the upper patio, he fears he may be witnessing a murder. Pass the cabernet!

 

 

 

The Kane Shadow: If You Can Choose Your Friends. Can You Kill Your Relatives?

Orson Welles, a.k.a. The Kane Shadow, comes back to his home town, Kenosha after another frustrating re-recording of a radio commercial in Chicago. While at dinner at one of his favorite restaurants, three very attractive and identical triplet women approach him and ask for his help. It would appear that a “friend” of theirs has gone missing and they fear the worst: murder. Their friend was last seen near Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin. Never able to resist the cries for help from attractive women, and knowing of the fine restaurants at the resort, Orson motors out to Delavan to investigate the matter. During his interviews of patrons and local people, he runs into, of all people, his grandmother! After years of avoiding this sorceress of the black arts (or so he accuses her of) and her harping at him for not finding legitimate work, she is the last person he wants to see. But…could she actually be connected to the disappearance? Although the story is pure fiction, the places and the cantankerous relationship between Orson and his grandmother are all accurate! And yes, the golf course at Lake Lawn Resort was built many decades ago over Indian burial mounds.

The Kane Shadow: A Roaring Murder

Orson Welles, a.k.a the Kane Shadow, visits Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and finds himself helping a flapper accused of murder while running out of a local speakeasy during a raid by the Feds. What could make matters worse? His grandmother!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Kane Shadow: The Louis "Gas" Derler Murder Mystery

On August 1, 1930, Louis “Gas” Derler, owner of Gas’ Place in Trevor, and his bartender, Ed Dennesty, were shot. No one was ever arrested for the murders and Louis is buried in Salem at Liberty Cemetery on highway 83 just south of highway C. Gas’ Place has since become Towne Square and is once again run by Louis’ grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Our hero, the KANE SHADOW, a.k.a Orson Welles, who always likes a mystery, especially a local one, takes a stab at solving this unsolved crime. Although we use current names of locations, all of these places did exist back in the 30’s.

The Enigma Covenant

This World II thriller, set in London in 1942, will take listeners on a journey of how the British Navy captured the German code machine, The Enigma, and how the code itself was broken at Bletchley Park, just outside of London.  Featured will be actual characters who were directly involved in actually breaking the German code, including: Alan Turing, Dilly Knox, and General “Wild” Bill Donovan, who headed up the Office of Strategic Services (O.S.S.), which was the precursor of the current C.I.A.

A Detective Double-Header! The Thin Man and Yours Truly Johnny Dollar

 —  —

www.wgtd.org / Listen Now!

“The Thin Man,” based on Dashiell Hammett’s novels, follows Nick and Nora Charles as they solve mysteries, and charm the world. Nick (portrayed by Joe Van Hulle) is a retired private investigator who is accompanied by his gorgeous, beautifully dressed, pent-house-rich wife, Nora, played by Susan Lien. Even Asta, their darling little Fox Terrier, helps solve some crimes in his own special way.

“Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar,” starring 91.1 Players actor Larry Rowe, always begins with a phone call from an insurance executive, calling on Johnny to investigate an unusual claim. Each story required Johnny to travel to some distant locale, usually within the United States but sometimes abroad, where he was almost always threatened with personal danger in the course of his investigations.
