The Black Bat #17 Audiobook
The Blackout Murders
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!
Tony Quinn, The Black Bat, rips aside the dark veil of mystery that shrouds a monstrous killer when a devilish machine of grim destruction threatens to bring panic to an entire nation!
The Black Bat has much in common with other heroes of the Pulps, including a wealth that readers are left to assume came from his career as an attorney before losing his sight. What overshadows most of these comparisons, however, is the fact that even from the very beginning The Black Bat saw a purpose in going to extraordinary lengths to fight what many would consider common criminals. Mad scientists and super criminals very rarely crossed Tony Quinn’s path in his fight for justice. The Black Bat’s rogue’s gallery included more urbane villains, from gang bosses to murderers to thugs and goons. Although many fans over the years have said that The Black Bat stories might have been better with more grandiose, extreme foes to fight, one of the appeals that kept this series running longer than even Doc Savage and The Shadow rests in the fact that The Black Bat went after evil that his readers likely encountered or at least read about every day.
From Tony Quinn’s first adventure, he is a crime fighter for the common person in his role as district attorney. Even the way in which he loses his sight, at the hands of a common criminal, concretes his resolve to not only continue striving for justice in his own way, but it gives him a laser focus on the type of crook that The Black Bat must pursue. In this, not only does Quinn continue the fight he began as an attorney, but he also proves to the readers that The Black Bat is a hero for the everyman.
Thrill to The Blackout Murders, originally published in Black Book Detective #50 March 1942 and read with two fisted excitement by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
