Publisher's Summary

1937: The world on the brink of war. But in the city of Riverburgh, NY, 40 miles north of Manhattan, there was a different kind of war brewing. It was a war of survival for the common man. A war against the gangsters and thugs who ruled the streets and against the corrupt politicians who turned a blind eye to the evil that ran rampant in Riverburgh.

In a city where everyone had given up hope and cried to the heavens for a savior, a savior had arrived. But was he heaven sent or a monster from hell? A grim, skull-faced being glowed with a terrible brightness. A monstrous creature who wielded twin .45 caliber pistols with a deadly and practiced aim, as well as strange and frightening powers that matched his terrible glowing eyes.

But would even the terrible Grim Spectre be a match for the forces the gang lord Phylo Zeus unleashed against him? Even if he was, would the Grim Spectre be able to withstand the attacks of the corrupt mayor and his police force that dogged his every move? Caught between the twin forces of darkness encompassing the small city of Riverburgh, was the Grim Spectre too little, too late? Or can the supernatural avenger somehow defeat his many foes on both sides of the law while caught in the vise of their greed and corruption?

    "Enjoyable "

    Loved it the time period that takes you back to days when movies were in black and white and gangsters ran the cities. The narrator's many voices , along with the colorfully written dialogue keep the story moving forward and wanting more. The twist at the end was totally surprising.

    Any additional comments?

    A 1930's trumpet player is bequeathed a magic belt that saves his life and turns him into the Grim Spectre--a crime-fighting supernatural entity.In his effort to rid the city of corruption he takes on an unhinged ex-priest, a professional wrestler, a vodouist, and a doctor who has injected himself with simian DNA. And then things start to get weird.

    The dialogue is snappy and humorous and the actor-reader does a great job trying on the different voices.
