Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre.  This week, we bring you a detective story by Robert Barr. It parodies Conan Doyle's famous sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. Our hero is Eugene Valmont, whose name is probably not familiar to you. He's a private detective in New York, though for several years he served as the head of the Secret Service in Washington. If you've never heard of him, it's because the records of his exploits are buried with other classified documents, which have remained undisclosed for national security reasons.
