Step back in time with two different “who-dun-its” presented as radio-style broadcasts, complete with live sound effects and commercials, with two great detectives. In "Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Copper Beeches," a governess believes there are strange happenings at the estate where she’s employed. "Nick Carter and the Strange Dr. Devolo" finds Carter and his friends trying to discover why Manhattan millionaires are missing. In both mysteries, the same six actors portray different characters, jumping from Holmes' Victorian England, to Carter's world of New York during World War II.
Nick Carter first appeared as the hero in a serialized novel, "The Old Detective's Pupil", in "The New York Weekly" in 1886 – a year before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Holmes' first caper, "A Study in Scarlet."
