Why I Like the Thrilling Detectives Radio Page

“Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker’s road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There’s no other way, but they never learn.”

I once used it as the voice mail message on my work phone and people called just to hear it. When I got back, I had lots of blank messages.”.
