The Black Bat #48 Audiobook
The Lying Killer
by G. Wayman Jones
Read by Milton Bagby
Out of the night comes a menacing winged figure! Blind district attorney Tony Quinn takes his battle for justice from the courtrooms to the streets, battling evil as The Black Bat!
Because he was the eyewitness to a murder, Paul Sinclair must see his family slain one by one — until the Nemesis of Crime comes to his aid! Tony Quinn pits himself against the mysterious chieftain of a hijacking combine of criminals!
When the Thrilling Group wanted to lead the third wave of Hero Pulps, it tapped its most reliable author to create new characters to headline magazines and stories. Norman A. Daniels was the writer responsible for The Black Bat in terms of concept and description, although the name was derived from both previous characters and to match up better with the title of the magazine, Black Book Detective, that would feature Quinn’s masked exploits. Writing as G. Wayman Jones, Daniels wrote the majority of the over sixty Black Bat stories published over fourteen years. According to some sources, Daniels’ job was to make The Black Bat every bit as good as The Shadow and he received a raise each time The Shadow’s creator did.
Even with Daniels being the creative force behind The Black Bat, he was not the sole author of Quinn’s adventures. At least three adventures even remain in which authors have not been identified. Some experts believe that Pulp author Whit Elsworth may have been the writer behind the first non-Daniels tale, published in 1940, while others maintain that it was author Prentice Winchell, known to most pulp fans by the pen name Stewart Sterling. Regardless of the identity of the author, most fans recall the Daniels written stories as the best Black Bat tales told, due in large part to his distinctive style and creative voice breathing a different sort of life into the masked hero.
Thrill to The Lying Killer, originally published in Black Book Detective #81 September 1948 and read with two fisted excitement by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
