Another fine project by the CBC, the Midnight Cab series boasts clean production values and an able, believable cast. The plot thickens like instant oatmeal as our narrator, Walker Devereaux, a 19-year-old new to the big city of Toronto, works his first shift as a cab driver, only to find a body in the trunk. He soon develops into an amateur sleuth, as well as a friend and advisor to local cops. Walker is supported by a sympathetic and colorful group of misfits. Each player sinks his teeth into his role, as is essential for engaging radio drama. Light jazz and well-modulated sound effects make this a fine listen. Even the packaging is top-shelf. D.J.B.
