Jacques Futrelle was tapped 9 times by CBSRMT for adaptations of his stories. They stand out as stories with innovative twists. (interesting trivia: he died on the Titanic.)

It is so true. People get addicted to these charlatans. Even though, he was informed that his life was in danger and that this couple had nefarious plans for him, he returned to them because "they were his best friends." It is a sad commentary on mystics and mediums. Many people( often grief stricken) still want to believe even when they are shown evidence of the fraud.
