Sexton Blake is a name synonymous with hurtling adventure and doom for villainy. Britain's most prolifically chronicled sleuth explodes back into action in a new series of thrilling adventures: 40 years after his last public incarnation.

Sexton Blake and his plucky assistant Tinker, aided by Mrs Bardell, must battle diabolical masterminds, bewitching thieves and sinister fiends. They must out-think them in the head and out-punch them in the jaw!

This cinematic audio romp is a period-set re-invention of Blake's glory years during the Twenties and Thirties and includes a cameo appearance by BBC Radio's Sixties Sexton Blake - the late, legendary and coolly dashing William Franklyn.
