Examples

  • Ever hear of a little thing called a detectaphone?

    Guy Garrick

  • Through the detectaphone I could hear the noise of the man walking about the garage and was ready at the window to give Garrick the first alarm of danger if he approached the back of the shop, but nothing happened and he succeeded in accomplishing his purpose of further hiding the two wires and returning safely.

    Guy Garrick

  • "Hello, Boss," we heard come out of the detectaphone box.

    Guy Garrick

  • Nevertheless, it was a relief when he secured the ends of the wires from the detectaphone and brought them up, pulling in the rope ladder after him.

    Guy Garrick

  • In the case of the detectaphone transmitter, it only replaces the regular telephone transmitter and its presence will never be suspected.

    Guy Garrick

  • Apparently, however, the discovery of one detectaphone had been enough to disarm further suspicion, and the garage keeper had not thought it necessary to examine the telephone wires to see whether they had been tampered with in any way.

    Guy Garrick

  • The wires from the box were quickly disposed of and dropped out of the window to the yard, several stories below, where we could pick them up later as we had done with the detectaphone.

    Guy Garrick

  • A hasty exclamation was recorded faithfully over our detectaphone, close to the transmitter, evidently.
