Delroy, Irene. Irene Delroy appeared in two radio serials in 1932 and 1933, beginning with Transcontinental Murder Mystery.

Irene Delroy is a well-known private detective who runs a one-woman detective agency. She is assisted by her boyfriend, Jimmy Gifford, and by policeman Sgt. Fitzgerald. Delroy’s exact past is unknown, but she receives the instant assistance of everyone in authority she encounters, and occasionally she takes assignments for the War Department or is pursued by numerous reporters looking for comments. She takes on crimes like murder and stolen money on a liner and foreign spies trying to assassinate the American inventor of a new cosmic ray weapon.
