Rex Rivetter: Private Eye is a modern audio drama.

The year is 1955. Tinsel town. The land of make-believe. It's a time of growth in American prosperity. Especially in Los Angeles. Here, dreams are bought and sold.

But there's a seedier side to the City of Angels, the shadows where pimps and narcotics pushers live, where organized crime stands just around every corner with one hand out, and the other wrapped around a roscoe. It's a city full of fancy dames and slick cons, where bookies know the vig, so you better, too.

Some folks call it noir or pulp fiction. But for a private eye named Rex Rivetter, it's home.

Top-notch acting

Excellent stories and acting. I’d gladly pay for a subscription, if I could eliminate the LOUD, music that plays 5-10 times per episode. Wow. It is blasting and high pitched in earbuds.

More please

A terrific show all arround. Wish there were more episodes.

Classic Hard-Boiled Detective Stories

Sounds like a classic noir radio show with an added sense of humor. Well written and wonderfully voiced, this is a can't miss for those who like radio drama.
