In this bonus show, I'm opening the mail and picking out my five favorite episodes of Box 13. Alan Ladd stars as mystery writer and amateur detective Dan Holiday who finds his clients - and his story ideas - through a clever classified ad offering his services as an adventurer for hire. First, Holiday is hired to pose as a fiance in "Look Pleasant, Please" and he's pressed into a citywide scavenger hunt alongside a killer in "The Better Man." He works to save an innocent man from execution in "Hunt and Peck" and expose a cadre of crooked gamblers in "Much Too Lucky." Finally, a weekend getaway lands Holiday in the middle of a bitter family reunion and a series of dangerous practical jokes in "Death is No Joke."
