Doc Savage Audiobook
Skull Island
by Will Murray
Read by Michael McConnohie.

When King Kong famously fell from his death perch on the summit of the Empire State Building early in 1933, the question on many moviegoers’ minds was: Where the heck was Doc Savage?

For the tallest skyscraper in Manhattan was also the world headquarters of the famous superman-scientist known as the Man of Bronze.

Over succeeding generations, fans of both characters have speculated about a clash between these two titans of the Great Depression. Had Doc Savage been away at his Fortress of Solitude when Kong fell? Or had he been exploring some faraway corner of the world?

Eighty years after Doc Savage and King Kong first made their stunning debuts, these questions can now be definitively answered.

Will Murray’s Skull Island is a landmark exploration of these two great legends. Opening in the immediate aftermath of King Kong's tragic demise, this monumental epic quickly moves from what to do with the titan ape’s remains to Doc Savage himself recounting the hitherto-unrecorded tale behind the first and only encounter between the Man of Bronze and the Eighth Wonder of the World!

Set in the years following World War I, when both legends were young, Skull Island relates the astonishing tale of how Doc Savage and his explorer father sailed in search of their legendary ancestor, Stormalong Savage, only to find themselves among the first white men ever to set foot on the demonic dinosaur domain called...Skull Island!

Michael McConnohie returns to bring this shattering story to life––and knocks it out of the park!

A Great Pulp and Golden Age Hollywood Adventure! March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Joseph Baneth Allen from Jacksonville, FL United States  
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!
