This week, a return to mystery writer, Dorothy L. Sayers. Sayers is best known for her detective character Lord Peter Wimsey, but this British writer also wrote many short stories in which there was no specific professional detective. In this week’s episode, you’ll hear Suspicion, an episode from the Suspense radio series based on the short story, Mr. Mummery’s Suspicion, a much more descriptive title. The episode stars noted theater, film and television character actor, Sam Jaffe, who was constantly on television in the fifties and sixties. His best known film role was either Ben-Hur or The Day the Earth Stood Still.
Suspicion is an excellent example of a common man as detective and follows The Detection Club’s commandments for good mystery writing.
