Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Shadow was originally broadcast on August 21, 1938.

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" From 1930-1954, the wealthy Lamont Cranston was one of the best-known characters on radio, using his mystical powers to fight crime. The only person who knew The Shadow's true identity was his "friend and companion, the lovely Margot Lane". Through the years, The Shadow was portrayed by Frank Readick, Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison, and others. As listeners were reminded at the end of every episode, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay! The Shadow knows!"

What the Critics Say

"As one of the basic prototypes of what has come to be called Pop Art, the Shadow is unique and irreplaceable, a legend in his own time. A classic character who looms slouch hat and shoulders above all others of his kind, he is an inevitable as a guilty conscience, an unseen power that awakens within all of us our most deep-rooted fears of mortal retribution. There has never been a force quite like him." (Jim Harmon, The Great Radio Heroes)

    Story
    "The Shadow is a patriot."

    The Shadow protects the army from a couple of mad doctors. Orson Welles was the best Shadow ever, I always like to listen to him. Once again crime Doesn't pay.

    I'm a mom. I read for fun and to bring my family together. We don't have a TV (30 years!) and love the power of books. Read on!

    "An army base under spread of disease"
    Any additional comments?

    The book is about greed, wanting money in exchange for offering a test of a fatal illness unleashed on an army base.
