Publisher's Summary

One of the most popular heroes of the 1960s returns in his first ever full-length novel. Super-spy and master of disguises Miles Drake, aka Captain Action, investigates the Riddle of the Glowing Men.

Foreign assassins are sent to kill Captain Action, and though he manages to defeat them, it is their lifeless bodies that pose the greater mystery as they give off a green, glowing radiation. Teamed with a beautiful and seductive Russian Agent, Captain Action travels to the barren, frozen wastelands of Siberia where the secret behind the glowing men lies buried in a fantastic lost underground world. It is a secret also pursued by his most dangerous nemesis, the alien-born Dr. Evil.

What is this strange power hidden beneath the Earth that could destroy all of mankind, and who will unlock its mysteries first?

Riddle of the Glowing Men is a classic pulp thriller packed with enough intrigue, daring escapes, and breakneck adventure to fill a dozen books. Featuring a stunning cover by artist Nick Runge, it presents a well-loved hero to a new audience eager to experience his special brand of two-fisted battling - Captain Action style!

    "Fun way to spend a few hours"
    Where does Captain Action: Riddle of the Glowing Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say in the top 20


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well Captain action of course, love his Travels to the barren and the frozen wastelands of Siberia


    Have you listened to any of Fred Wolinsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First book by this author


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me smile, very easy to listen to and very enjoyable


    Any additional comments?

    First of all in all fairness and in the spirit of openness, let me tell you that I received a free copy of this book from the narrator. Let me also preface this by saying I am not a big fan of Pulp fiction, but this book may have changed my mind about that. The Author, Jim Beard, took an Iconic action figure from the late 1960’s and brought him to life. The story takes place during the Cold war era and while I was not crazy about the yacht cap our hero wore , that seemed a bit odd, the story its self was enjoyable. The descriptions of the various locals provided imagery and added that level of realism needed. Very well done. There were characters left out from the original stories, but this had no effect on this novel.

    In summary if You are looking to spend some time with a highly entertaining book, this is one you should read. It’s fun and not to “serious” , I may now need to read more modern Pulp fiction.
