The Phantom Detective #67 Audiobook
The Counterfeit Killer
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 famous cosmetician is murdered, half a dozen deaf mutes are snatched, a psychiatrist is killed — and The Phantom is confronted with elusive, scattered clues to a perplexing jigsaw puzzle of blood-drenched crime!
 
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. The identity of this masked master sleuth was, as often was the case, a wealthy millionaire, although he took up crimefighting for an unique reason. Having served in World War One as a pilot known for his dogfighting prowess, Richard Curtis 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.
 
With so many authors responsible for the tales of The Phantom Detective, there are obviously high points and not so high points throughout the series in terms of quality. A certain number of traits, however, seem to run standard for most, if not all the entries in the series. One aspect is how the plot moves quickly and usually efficiently, switching gears from intense action to actual mystery solving to focusing on the intent of the crooks and back again. The stories overall do not slow down enough, insuring the listener is engaged from beginning to end. Another similarity story to story is that although he is a master sleuth, he is also one that makes mistakes, encounters obstacles, and often ends up in spots that end with him just barely escaping. He is fallible, not some larger than life character that fans could never identify with.
 
‘The Counterfeit Killer’ was originally published in the September 1938 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
