In the debut series of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program, meet Sam; a cagey ex-Federal Agent, Deloris; the obsessive book dealer, Hank Jr.; a noble farmboy, Cyril; the smooth-talking jazz man, and Father Grandfather; a mad bible salesman. These five housemates of dubious moral fiber must band together to solve a murder most foul; risking their very sanity as each clue exposes more of the nightmarish truth. Horror and comedy combine in this genre-melding podcast.
