The Secret 6 audiobook, #1 October 1934

Criminals quaked at the name The Secret 6. And for four glorious issues, this team of six crime fighters took on some of the weirdest and most fantastic antagonists that ever reared their heads in the pulp magazines. It was where weird menace met six normal men with no strange gadgets or outlandish skills. The utterly amazing stories were written by Robert J. Hogan, better known for writing the G-8 and his Battle Aces stories. But after four issues, the over-the-top action came to an end and Popular Publications pulled the plug on the series. These vintage pulp tales are now reissued for today's listeners as audiobooks.

    The premise of The Secret 6 was deceptively simple, yet pure pulp. An enigmatic adventurer known only as King busts out of Death Row to form an anti-crime group called The Secret 6. The others include The Key, The Doctor, Shakespeare, The Bishop, and Luga, as well as numerous underworld stool pigeons and hangers-on. All are wanted. So they operate outside the law.
