Clever tale with a twist at the end...worth listening to.

Agree with Mike -good story with a great twist; sit back and enjoy

Loved it, had me fooled all the way up to the end.

Thank you to this Website for recommending two very good murder mysteries- Diary of a Madman, and this episode Killer Instinct! It is amazing that we have such beautifully designed and organized Web access to this treasure trove of CBS Radio Mystery Theater from our childhoods that has no equal today. I always like to recommend another episode when commenting, so I would say Cabinet of the Unsolved is a good mystery too - with two added bonuses: a train and a heart.

Why isn't Ralph Bell credited in this episode?

This is one of the better ones. Very clever.

Great story! I highly recommend this one. Definitely one of the better RMT detective stories.
