The War of the Worlds Murders with Walter Gibson & Orson Wells
The latest in a series in which famous authors who were around during the happening of a famous disaster solve a mystery while it’s going on.
Other in the series are
The Titanic Murders with Jacques Futrelle (“The Thinking Machine”)
The Hindenburg Murders Leslie Charteris, though to be fair while Leslie Charteris, the author of the Saint stories, did ride on the Hindenburg, he was not on it during its famous last flight.
The London Blitz Murders with Agatha Christie & Sir Bernard Spilsbury
The Lusitania Murders with Willard Huntington Wright (S.S. Van Dine) & Philomina Vance
The Pearl Harbor Murders with Edgar Rice Burroughs, however making ERB into an insightful sleuth was pushing it a bit.
