Straight from the pen of the Lake Wobegon author, Garrison Keillor comes the exciting adventures of Guy Noir, Private Eye. It sounds like the old Maltese Falcon days when hardboiled detectives dominated the radio waves. Guy sits in his office above the streets of a "city that knows how to keep its secrets". The building that houses his office is called the "Acme" building.

You might expect Bugs Bunny to appear under the awning that says, "Acme"

Cases come in his door in the form of tough guys making threats and good looking "broads" who need help. You get the picture.

The CDs bring eleven of the exciting adventures to you and what a collection of delightful spoofs on the great mystery writers of the 40's. The tales are always fun and this whole collection will give you more that 2-hours of fun. You will play it again and again.
