With "Doc Savage - Skull Island," author Will Murray has combined the best of the pulp era with the best of Hollywood's Golden Age to create a memorable adventure that lingers with you long after the last word is read. "Doc Savage - Skull Island" fits neatly between the novelization of King Kong and the followup sequel - "Kong - King of Skull Island." "Skull Island" opens with the aftermath of Kong's tragic death in New York City. Doc Savage is unaware of the events that happened and is returning from his Fortress of Solitude at the North Pole. Murray has created a gripping tale of a father and son trying to come to terms with each other, while searching for Doc's long lost Grandfather, Stormalong Savage. Murray gives fascinating insights into Doc Savage's earlier years. Murray wisely leaves a lot of mysteries undisturbed, leaving Doc with puzzles he must find, if ever, the answers to. Highly Recommended! Five Stars!
