Doc Savage Audiobook
Written by Will Murray, Based on a Concept by Lester Dent
He was a role model during the Great Depression and a pop icon for the millions who thrilled to his paperback exploits from the 1960s thru the 1980s. Now Doc Savage, the legendary Man of Bronze, comes to vivid life in White Eyes, the new audiobook adventure from Radio Archives.
In White Eyes, a new supercriminal emerges from the underworld. Dressed all in white, his face masked, eyes blank as that of a blind man, he calls himself White Eyes. Who is he? What are his goals? All of Manhattan reels under the onslaught of the Blind Death, a scourge so terrible that innocent people are struck dead, their eyes turning as white as hardboiled eggs. From his skyscraper headquarters high above the streets of New York City to the sugarcane fields of Cuba, Doc Savage races to crush gangland's latest uncrowned king! Written by Will Murray and produced and directed by Roger Rittner, the same team that created Python Isle and The Adventures of Doc Savage audio collections also available from Radio Archives, White Eyes features dramatic narration by Richard Epcar, cover art by Joe DeVito, and two exclusive audio interviews with Will Murray on the continuing history of Doc Savage and the original Lester Dent manuscript that led to the writing of this exciting edge-of-your-seat adventure.

I have always loved the Doc Savage books and am planning on listening to the entire series that is available on Audio.com. Then I'll move onto The Shadow series, and hopefully they will have some Phillip Marlow, Sam Spade, Johnny Dollar, and other great crime stoppers available soon.
Many of the pulp-era Doc Savage stories are rather formulaic, poorly edited, and generally fall short of expectations. Will Murray's "White Eyes," written in the 1990s based on a concept by Lester Dent, does a masterful job of emulating the pulps but offers an exciting, fresh, well-written story involving a mysterious power that turns mens' eyes white, boils their brains, and eventually kills them. It reads like the Doc of the 1940s but is much better written, much better paced, and overall much superior. Richard Epcar's narration is also very, very good.
