The Phantom Detective #131 Audiobook
Killer Portfolio
by Robert Wallace
Read by Milton Bagby
Forged in war, The Phantom Detective wages a one-man battle on crime! Solving impossible mysteries and delivering his own justice, he is the underworld’s masked nightmare!
The Phantom Detective plunges into a baffling mystery maze when a sinister overlord of crime guides the hand of grim murder and destruction that strikes at the heart of America!
Although all the authors that contributed to The Phantom Detective’s 170 adventures will likely never be known, several noteworthy names lent their talents to the character leading the longest running Pulp magazine in history. One such author made his name creating another character that shares some interesting characteristics with The Phantom Detective. Although he wrote under the house name Robert Wallace when he wrote The Phantom Detective, Paul Chadwick wrote both under pen names and his own name throughout his pulp career. He wrote in various genres, picking up tricks from each one as his career developed.
Although a contributor to The Phantom Detective, Chadwick’s true claim to Pulp fame is the fact that he created Secret Agent X. While he is some sort of espionage agent, X bears a few similarities to The Phantom Detective, the most notable being that both men spend a lot of time looking like someone else. The Phantom Detective is a master of disguise and this skill plays prominently into most of his stories. Likewise, Secret Agent X is known for being a man of many faces with the majority of those who have met him never seeing his actual face. Chadwick also penned the single adventure published in the heyday of Pulps of Captain Hazzard, a character heavily influenced by Doc Savage. Following World War II, he moved primarily to writing in the Western pulps, until he left that field to work in newspaper journalism in the 1950s.
Killer Portfolio was originally published in the August 1945 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
