The Phantom Detective #63 Audiobook
The Movie Lot Murders
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!
In the wake of a sensational snatch case, the spotlight of crime is turned on a grisly death spectacle! Murder and tragedy stalk the desert as the Phantom undertakes one of the most baffling cases in his career.
The Phantom Detective, billed in his stories as the World’s Greatest Sleuth, definitely proved time and again that he was indeed highly skilled in all aspects of criminal investigation, as well as a master of disguise and an excellent escape artist. Never once in the entire twenty-year series did Richard Curtis Van Loan display any sort of heightened senses, ala Doc Savage, or the ability to cloud anyone’s thoughts, as The Shadow could do at times. No, The Phantom Detective, albeit wealthy and highly self-trained, was just a common man with an uncommon drive to fight crime and pursue justice. Also, the majority of the villains featured in the series were essentially street level hooligans, gangsters, and corrupt types. With this in mind, the editors used The Phantom Detective as a soapbox, a platform for highly charged editorialized comments about crime and the need to combat it.
Citing actual crimes and criminals’ actions across the country, the editorial staff behind The Phantom Detective made great use of their forum. They gave their hero as many kidnappings and fraud cases as they did actual murders to solve. They also, in opening blurbs aimed to entice and even incite their readers, discussed allegedly real corruption in various cities and spotlighted crimes of all sorts, always tying it back into the reader having an obligation to fight crime in their own way, much like The Phantom Detective.
‘The Movie Lot Murders’ was originally published in the May 1938 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
