No one knew who -- or what -- the strange being who called himself "X Man" truly was. He was found wandering the ruins of a crumbling Roman fort, dressed in a toga, speaking classical Latin -- and clutching a handful of unearthly black seeds. Declared insane, the X Man patiently tended his weird plants until the day, impelled by a nameless terror, he fled Wyndmoor Asylum to unleash a cyclone of violence that was destined to suck the mighty Man of Bronze into the blackest, most unbelievable mystery of his entire career. For far from Scotland lay a domain of death unknown to the world and called by the ancient Latin name of Novum Eboracum -- New York! From the wild Scottish moors to the unexplored heart of darkest Africa, Doc Savage and his indomitable men embarked upon a desperate quest for the Forgotten Realm.

Not only is this possibly the best of the new Wild Adventures of Doc Savage by Will Murray and Lester Dent but the best of the Radio Archives audio books featuring the Man of Bronze and his Amazing Crew! Michael McConnohie is masterful in his reading and impersonation of Doc, Monk, Ham and Johnny as well as the other characters. The bumper music and over all production by Roger Rittner enhances and completes this awesome audio adventure! Great job!
Doc is the inspiration for Superman and many other modern superheroes...though he technically does not have any super powers himself. He is the 1920's idea of the pinnacle of human development - physically, mentally, and morally. He is culturally relevant even today - Rusty Venture's father on "The Venture Brothers" on the cartoon network is (comically) based on him. Love Doc Savage books. We want more!
