I think this is the best episode of the series so far. It has plenty of adventure, and no silly ghosts tottering about.


A US senator's daughter falls for a scheming Italian criminal while abroad, and the politician's trusted staff must show her the error of her ways while protecting the senator's career. Unusually action-oriented episode of the show feels a bit like a proto-Tom Clancy story, though the plot itself is pretty ramshackle and the villain's Telly Savalas accent is awfully distracting.

This was a fantastic episode--5 stars. No real fear you can hear, just a good story with an international flare. Natorio Tadesco--now that's a villain's name if I ever heard one. There is also romance in this episode so you can listen to it with your favorite girl.

A senator’s daughter falls in love with a gangster in hiding in Europe and wanted in the States for tax fraud. When she refuses to return, the Senator sends his trusted friends to bring her back.


Not a bad episode and the happy ending seemed likely from the beginning (even with the comedic statement by the one person who was happy to "have a finger in the pie"). Some parts about the female character were quite silly, but not a bad listen overall.


Excellent Ian Martin caper episode. This is what he does best and it was highly entertaining. Things get a little silly with accent work, but you get what you pay for.


See Naples and Die is an international thriller with an unusual style of both narrative and dialogue that works well for the story's blend of politics and crime. An earlier reviewer labeled 'Naples' as "proto-Tom Clancy" and I agree. Although you will have to listen to this story to understand that description, it's well worth it. The story jumps around a bit but writer Ian Martin rarely overexplains his plays or 'talks down' to the listener. In this way, he gives the audience a ton of credit for being able to keep up - especially during bumps and twists on this fun ride. Credit for this great Mystery Theater episode goes right back to Martin and the memorable performances from this full cast. See Naples and Die kills it with 4 of 5 stars. - JUROR #4
