Love The Shadow

I remember listening to the episodes as a kid. Eventually bought as many as survived. Read all the books I could find. Now I can get the books in audio format.

Great Suspense and Mystery

This is another excellent story for the Shadow series. The writing paints a clear picture and pulls you along with the temptation of who the master kidnapper, the Black Falcon, is and what the true identity of the Dark Avenger is.

Although not fully explained until The Shadow Unmasks, this story toys with your expectations to make a grand reveal and an entertaining mystery.

Once again Richard Ferrone does an excellent job with the material. I’d easily recommend this story to pulp fans everywhere.

The Strange Creature of the Night

A classic 1934 adventure of The Shadow, facing off against one of the early great supercrooks, The Black Falcon. A splendid and exciting pulp detective story, extremely well performed. Well worth its reasonable price!
