No good two-timing

A man's extra-marital affair gets him embroiled in serious trouble when his mistress is bludgeoned to death shortly after he leaves her home. He soon guesses who the real culprit is but the man seems to have built a solid alibi. The lover finds himself as a potential suspect and as the inevitable noose seems to be tightening around his neck the question is whether or not he will find a way out! A very well-acted and enjoyable piece of radio drama.

Great Fun

After buying the "Zero Hour 1," I quickly bought five more. They are absolutely perfect for a long road-trip. Much more entertaining than a simple audio book (now that I've become so accustomed to them over the past five years) these episodes are a great change of pace. They are made for radio, and the acting is superb (all the old TV and movie stars you've grown up with). Content-wise, sure they're a little dated, but imagine a twilightzonesque sense of irony and surprise, packaged in an hour and forty minute stage production that kicks most modern murder mystery's butt. And man, is it ever great to hear Rod do an introduction one more time. Some episodes are stronger than others but each is fun. You won't be disappointed taking a chance on two or three of these mini-masterpieces.
