HILARY CAINE MYSTERY VOLUME 2!
Created and written by British author M. J. Elliott and set in the England of the 1930's, Hilary Caine is a young woman with a unique gift for solving crimes. She is employed by the English tabloid "Tittle Tattle Magazine" as their in house "Girl Detective," she solves the crime, they write the story. Portrayed in these full cast dramatizations by talented Australian actress Karen, (car-ren), Heaven as a sort of a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Ellery Queen with an independent attitude, Hilary Caine is an exciting addition to the Jim French Productions universe of first rate modern audio mysteries.
“The spirit of Ellery Queen lives on in a new character from Jim French Productions, that prolific provider of radio mysteries. The sleuth in Hilary Caine Mysteries…as written by M. J. Elliott and played by Karen Heaven, is an engaging and original character… in the mode of Golden Age sleuths like Lord Peter Wimsey, Philo Vance, Roger Sheringham, Reggie Fortune, and the early EQ. (the similarity of names, as made clear in the first episode, is a deliberate homage.) The plots are ingenious and fairly clued…the tone humorous and ironic.”
Jon Breen, from Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine June 2006 Issue
