Today's Mystery: In a swirl of old memories and new shock, Johnny is summoned to unravel the sordid unraveling of a once-trusted friend. Ed Morgan, known for his honest life, is posthumously accused of embezzling a staggering $80,000. As Johnny steps into the fog of San Francisco to trace Ed's last steps, he encounters a parade of characters who paint a picture of a man living beyond his means, a man whose life had taken a mysterious turn upon meeting the enigmatic widow, Nikki Barrett. But as Johnny delves deeper, the line between victim and thief blurs, raising the haunting possibility that Ed Morgan's fatal accident may have been anything but.Quote of the Episode:"Gratuities of this nature are always so helpful in smoothing the rough pathway of human relations."Original Radio Broadcast Dates: September 10 and 11, 1956Originated from HollywoodStars: Bob Bailey as Johnny Dollar, Virginia Gregg, Jack Edwards, Russell Thorson, Shirley Mitchell, Stacy Harris, Bob Miller, Harry Bartell, Vic Perrin,Frank GerstleWhen making your travel plans, remember http://johnnydollarair.comBecome one of our Patreon Supporters at patreon.greatdetectives.netThank you to our Patreon Supporter of the Day:Guy, Patreon Supporter Since September 2022Take the listener survey…http://survey.greatdetectives.netGive us a call 208-991-4783Become one of our friends on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter @radiodetectives
