Easy to figure out who the villain was here. Interesting to see the French government insist that drugs don't come from France. Perhaps we were more naive in the 1970's not to realize that drugs come from everywhere! Crime drama; no supernatural elements.

The CBS-RMT episode deals probably with my least favorite radio show topic: A cop gets sent to France to deal with a drug cartel. For one, I hate foreign adventures because I can't relate to half the places they describe, and two, when it gets into drugs and stuff, I don't often understand half of what they're talking about, either. This one had a love interest, who you just knew was going to betray the American (which always happens!). The only saving grace was that the lead characters were amiable types. It was a struggle, but I made it through... Where's the "fear you can hear", CBS-RMT...

Just alright. That is the best way to describe this episode. I knew that Steve was going to be done wrong by the lovely American, who just happened to meet Steve on an international flight to Paris. It was interesting how it all tied together. The story was a bit complicated--at one point in time I wondered if Steve had forgot that he was an agent inspecting drug trafficking between France and the United States. Not Mystery Theater's best, but still, very entertaining.

Engaging spy drama.

A federal drug agent goes to France to trace heroin shipments. A Greek drug dealer torments him and his new love interest.

A touch of The French Connection with Gene Hackman. An American detective goes to France to investigate heroin importation and the drug ring. On the flight over he encounters a woman with whome he makes a connection. They meet and share the sights in France. The detective also encounters some rough characters and one particularly influential Greek olive merchant who seems to be everywhere. A listenable crime drama. Kept me interested while pulling weeds in the back yard.

I agree that it wasn't the best episode and there wasn't "fear you could hear", but it kept me entertained long enough. It was difficult to find out what exactly this agent was doing in France besides seeing the woman he met on the plane.
