When a politician attempts to recover some love letters from a mistress, he sets off a chain of events that will ruin a few lives.

I really enjoyed this fast moving episode

Recently heard "Ripple Effect": senate candidate sends a small- time thief to steal some leters he wrote to a former lover, murder happens, and it snowballs from there. I love E.G. Marshall's line after Act 2: we know by now Emerson (the candidate) is a "man of letters".

thisd was a pretty good story!

This was a good crime drama in which one murder causes a ripple effect, as the title implies, and 2 women have similar agendas. At the end of the episode Himan Brown comes on to tell the audience about a new show that he is producing, starting feb 5, of what I assume is 1977, a new show called General Mills Radio Adventure Theater. He said it was to be broadcast every Saturday and Sunday, and was to be based on books as well as new stories that would be full of "action, suspense and adventure". It was to have starred actor Tom Bosley. Does anyone know if these aired and for how long?
