The Spider eBook 

#10 The Corpse Cargo - July 1934 
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge

Thundering far beneath Manhattan's thronging streets came the Death Express — a crack New York Central train bearing a gruesome cargo of lifeless men, women and children — their bodies stripped of valuables, naked and mutilated! A grim warning of the terror-reign that threatened America — at the hands of Twentieth Century land-pirates, whose weapon was neither gun nor sword, but the stunning, body-shivering force which lies in electricity! Can the Spider, using mortal weapons, fight the numbing power of the thunderbolt — and survive?

Another epic exploit of America’s best-loved pulp-fiction character of the 1930s and 1940s: The Spider — Master of Men!

Richard Wentworth — the dread Spider, nemesis of the Underworld, lone wolf anti-crime crusader who always fights in that grim no-man’s land between Law and lawless — returns in vintage pulp tales of the Spider, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

As a special Bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction: “Meet the Spider” especially for this series of eBooks.

WOW! December 4, 2012
Reviewer: Andrew Salmon from Vancouver, BC Canada  
When I first dove into the Corpse Cargo I did not have high hopes. Giving Wentworth a boy sidekick did not look like a great idea. Then I finished the first couple of chapters during which a sadistic gang of modern day pirates torture the boy's friends, carving a skull and crossbones into the chest of one.

Heavy stuff.

The action is heavy in this one, savage, unwavering and the pirates, led by a beautiful and deadly sociopath are some of the most hideous villains the Spider has ever faced. This group has harnessed electricity and are using it to simply electrify passing trains and planes, then looting the corpses. The pirates' raid on one train load full of people is one of the best sustained action sequences in the history of pulp fiction, new or old.

This one also sees the Spider and his love, Nita, faced with deadly decisions and no chance of escape. The action is heavy here, the emotions run high and you will be on the edge of your seat.

My highest recommendation.
