A professor has conducted extensive research into a lost civilization on the Iran/Afghanistan border and after years of obscurity is possibly a candidate for the Nobel Prize as a result of his findings. One day the professor is visited at his home by a young researcher who has evidence that contradicts some of his findings - something that could eliminate his chance for the prize and further recognition. Soon, there will be a murder investigation. For a while, I thought I was listening to a radio version of "Columbo."

This episode is a nightmare that every academic researcher could relate to in the shadows of their minds. When tested, could anyone have their dark demons emerge? Very scary stuff psychologically. The best part is the conversation with the wife.

Listening to this episode "A Private Demon" a second time, after hearing so many episode,makes me realize what an excellently crafted episode this one is. It moves along so quickly and steadily. CBSRMT gem.

Very good!
