  • "A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets. . . . But on the 12th Floor of the Acme Building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions: Guy Noir, Private Eye."

    From A Prairie Home Companion comes this all-new collection of Guy Noir episodes follows the intrepid detective as he seeks out truth, justice, and a great pastrami sandwich. His clients are the downtrodden and disappointed denizens of downtown St. Paul, with troubles no other gumshoe would touch, but there's usually a beautiful dame to admire and a lesson to be learned for Guy.

    Garrison Keillor's private eye spoof thrills audiences every week on live public radio broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. Now take Guy Noir home and enjoy an intelligent, unusual—but always funny—spin on the classic detective genre.
