Absolutely love the Shadow.

I have all the books I could get from years ago, and loved the entire series. I also have all of the radio dramas.

One More Great Thriller

The Voodoo Master is another great pulp mystery from the annals of The Shadow.

After encountering a mysteriously dazed man, a doctor calls upon the Shadow’s aid to regain the man’s mental health, but in doing so uncovers an evil plot to rob and murder at the hands of a cult of Voodoo worshipers. Now only the Shadow can track their leader and bring him to justice.

This story this time around is a little more low key than the globe trotting adventure of the Romanov Jewels, or the identity switching of The Shadow Unmasks, but the writing paints just as much of a mental picture as the others.

Richard Ferrone’s narration fits the tone and atmosphere of the story and does a great job even without the full cast to flesh out the characters.
The only thing I really miss about this one is the lack of music at each chapter heading, but the story does not suffer form its absence.

I really enjoyed this book and hope that there will be more in the future.

A let down.

I really enjoyed the first two Shadow audiobooks. They had several cast members and seemed like a pretty good production. The Voodoo Master is simply narrated with the narrator providing the different characters voices. Seems kind of cheap and thrown together. Hopefully if there’s another one it will be done better.
