The Benson Murder Case by S. S. Van Dine Part One

We discuss chapters 1-8 of The Benson Murder Case, by S. S. Van Dine. An overzealous art critic turns his detest of detective fiction into a series of its own, but does it hold up on its own? Flex is up against the infallible (and insufferable) Philo Vance to solve this crime before the culprit escapes. We also speak with 2SER News Director Geoff Field about the salacious life and history of S. S. Van Dine, AKA Willard Huntington Wright.
