Not as much as a surprise ending as I was hoping

The stories were not as much of a cliffhanger as I was Hoping. Most were predictable

Suspense!

Classic radio drama - "Suspense".
Twenty half hour episodes first broadcast in 1943, very much of their time, nevertheless entertaining and dramatic.
Stars from the golden age of Hollywood feature in these drama's. Including - Charles Laughton, Agnes Moorehead, Maureen O’Hara, Orson Welles, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Gene Kelly, Vincent Price, Cary Grant, Peter Lorre, and others. The PDF file is a useful addition, and provides information about the radio show and each episode.
If you enjoy listening to radio drama's from bygone times, then these are great.
