The listener is traveling on a train, the sound of its whistle echoing in the background followed by the clickity-clack of the tracks. A quiet, somber voice, the eponymous host speaks: "This is the Mysterious Traveler, inviting you to join me on another journey into the strange and terrifying. I hope you will enjoy the trip; that it will thrill you a little, and chill you a little. So settle back, get a good grip on your nerves, and be comfortable—if you can!" With that each of the Mysterious Traveler radio dramas in this collection begin; journeys that might be horrific, a whodunit, or even science fictional. Featuring Maurice Tarplin as the voice of the Mysterious Traveler, these well written and effective melodramatic tales from the creative team of David Kogan and Robert Arthur were honed expertly, often in the style of the crime pulps. This collection includes eight digitally remastered and restored episodes.

Includes the following episodes: Murder in Jazz Time 4/20/48; Death Writes a Letter 5/18/48; Murder Is My Business 6/8/48; The Visiting Corpse 8/10/48; Death Has a Thousand Faces 9/21/48; The Man from Singapore 4/4/50; The Most Famous Man in the World 11/20/51; Christmas Story 12/25/51
