Laura Falls – an episodic detective story in the noir style, for radio 

Laura Falls has been murdered and her sister Wendy is missing.   

William Borough is asked to investigate Laura’s unsolved case files to determine if the clients in those cases may be possible suspects in her disappearance.   

Each episode is devoted to a case file. 

Using flashbacks, we hear the interactions between Laura, Wendy and the client, as well as any relevant details.  

Towards the end of the episode William asks why the case was unsolved.  And in a final flashback we learn of the status of the case and why Laura abandoned it or why the client terminated the job. 

Conclusion – William determines if the client is a suspect or not. 


Note; all accents and vocal types will be considered.
