The suave sleuth tries to connect his wife's kidnapping with a body dressed in a coat.
Francis Durbridge's thriller stars Peter Coke as Paul Temple and Marjorie Westbury as Steve in another intriguing case for BBC radio's smoothest investigator and his glamorous wife.
With James Beattie as Charlie, Tommy Duggan as Mike Langdon, Simon Lack as Superintendent Raine, Hugh Manning as Larry Cross, Jon Rollason as Tony Wyman, June Tobin as Linda Kelburn, Julian Somers as George Kelburn and Tom Watson as Ted Angus.
From 1938 to 1969 the fictional crime novelist and detective Paul Temple, together with his Fleet Street journalist Steve, solved case after case in one of BBC radio's most popular series. They inhabited a sophisticated world of chilled cocktails and fast cars, where the women were chic and the men wore cravats - a world where Sir Graham Forbes, of Scotland Yard, usually needed Paul's help with his latest tricky case.
