The Phantom Detective #65 Audiobook
The Yellow Shadows of Death
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!
A Robin Hood of Chinatown turns killer — and as the hue and cry of the betrayed swells to a chorus of doom, The Phantom steps in to probe a blood-drenched, sinister mystery!
The Phantom Detective’s name is a perfect description of Thrilling Publications’ own answer to The Shadow. Richard Curtis Van Loan undertook a rigorous training program that not only turned him into a fine physical specimen, but also honed apparently natural abilities to think critically and solve problems and mysteries. Becoming an expert in crime detection and all the sciences related to it, Van Loan most definitely earned the Detective part of his alter ego’s name. The Phantom half of the name was also earned by Van Loan’s dedication to his mission, to take on the underworld single handedly. Focused on his identity remaining a secret and being able to get out of any jam he might get into, the millionaire turned masked man taught himself to be a master escape artist and a wizard at disguises. Over the course of his 170 stories, The Phantom Detective assumes several identities, including chemist Dr. Paul Bendix and Lester Cornwell.
Although the title of the magazine was indeed The Phantom Detective, the lead character was referred to only as ‘The Phantom’ in the actual stories. Having served in World War One as a pilot known for his dogfighting prowess, Van Loan left the idle rich gadabout he’d been in the skies of battle and returned home seeking a mission, wanting to give something back to the city and world he lived in. He found this behind a mask as The Phantom haunting criminals until they received justice.
‘The Yellow Shadows of Death’ was originally published in the July 1938 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
