Brian Donlevy stars as US government secret agent Steve Mitchell, who spans the globe troubleshooting for our country.

In 1949, NBC brought mustachioed Irish-American actor Brian Donlevy to the radio microphones as international troubleshooter Steve Mitchell in the spy series Dangerous Assignment. Mitchell worked for an unnamed US government intelligence agency whose boss, The Commissioner, dispatched him to world trouble spots. Mitchell’s assignment was to solve problems in record time and in accordance with US interests.

The radio series lasted three seasons (1949–1953) due in part to Donlevy’s terrific performances and the mystique of the foreign locations and situations, which radio listeners could create in their theater of the mind. During its last year on radio, Donlevy formed a production company to convert the series to television, producing thirty-nine episodes for syndication. Enjoy sixteen exciting, half-hour radio adventures of globetrotting troubleshooter Steve Mitchell as he solves another Dangerous Assignment.

About the Narrators

Brian Donlevy (1901–1972) was an Irish American actor noted for his dangerous tough guy roles from the 1930s through the 1960s. He traded an early military career for the stage, and the stage for the screen. His performance in 1935’s Barbary Coast brought him rave reviews as “the tough guy all in black.” An Academy Award nomination followed for his performance in Beau Geste in 1939; and the next year saw him starring in The Great McGinty. In the 1940s he played Special Agent Steve Mitchell in Dangerous Assignment, a radio series that later made the transition to television with Donlevy as it’s producer. Donlevy’s obituary in the London Times stated that “any consideration of the American ‘film noir’ of the 1940s would be incomplete without him.”

New York Times bestselling coauthors Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff met thanks to international taxation law, and soon struck up a writing partnership based on a shared love of blowing things up and breaking hearts. Their first collaboration resulted in the international bestseller Illuminae. Separately, Amie is also the coauthor of the bestselling Starbound trilogy, while Jay is the author of the award-winning Lotus War trilogy and the Nevernight Chronicle. They live with their respective spouses in Melbourne, Australia, and are fueled almost exclusively by caffeine and readers’ tears.
