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.

Gateway Technical College, BioScience Bldg, 3520 - 30th Avenue, Kenosha WI 53144

In this original drama co-written by Steven Brown and Michael Ullstrup, two young American women, in 1942, are recruited into the man’s world of cloak-and-dagger espionage to uncover the reasons behind the Nazi’s U-boat probing of the North American East Coast.
The women are sent to spy school in Virginia where they face rigorous training in hand-to-hand combat, small weapons, and the use of poisons and special devices. They are secreted to Germany by land, sea, and air avoiding the ever present Gestapo and take on undercover roles at a German naval base.

Working with a mole, they discover the Nazi plot to send a u-boat up the Potomac River and deliver Nazi agents to put a bomb in the Capitol of the United States when President Roosevelt is giving his State-of-the-Union address. The women make a daring escape with these secret documents under Gestapo gunfire by flying a plane out of Germany to the safety of England. The Nazis never had a chance to derail America’s war efforts due to the courage, patriotism, and sacrifice of the women of the OSS, The Office of Strategic Services, which later became the C.I.A.

The live broadcast, which is free to the public, begins at 11:15 a.m. The audience should arrive at the Kenosha campus of Gateway Technical College, Inspire Building, Room i131 (Formerly Room 120 in the BioScience Building) by 10:45 a.m. The address is 3520 30th Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin 53144.
