Murder Clinic

MURDER CLINIC was a short-lived radio anthology series that each week adapted a detective story from some generally well-known mystery writer, including Edgar Wallace, Ngaio Marsh, Carter Dickson (John Dickson Carr), Agatha Christie, Margery Allingham, G. K. Chesterton, Jacques Futrelle, Stuart Palmer and others.

Most of them weren't private eye stories, but a few did manage to slip through:
