The Phantom Detective #70 Audiobook
The Murder Syndicate
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!
Menace hovers over the sport of kings and leaves charred corpses in its wake as the fiendish “Dollar Man” strikes — and it’s up to the Phantom to stay its hand! Follow this nemesis of crime as he strives to solve a sinister mystery of the race track!
Richard Curtis Van Loan — The Phantom Detective. The greatest sleuth of all time, his casebook is filled with tales of his courageous “Lone Wolf” campaign to rid the nation of organized crime and big time racketeers, his single-handed war against rampant banditry in America. In many ways, the Phantom Detective was the first true blend of the detective and hero genres in Pulp.
Following The Shadow into pulp magazines as the second ‘pulp hero’ character, The Phantom Detective bore little to no similarity to Street & Smith’s terrifying vigilante. Except for both being born of wealth and having been in the Great War, there is little to compare between the two. While The Shadow worked with a team of agents, The Phantom Detective went to great lengths to fight his war against crime alone, keeping his identity secret from all but one and rarely calling on others to help him. Also, The Phantom Detective is quite possibly the only self-made Pulp hero to hit the newsstands, going to great lengths to teach himself all he needed to be the world’s greatest detective and more. Also unlike The Shadow, The Phantom Detective not only had a good relationship with the police, but they called on him for help so often that his trusted friend installed a beacon on top of a building to summon him when law enforcement needed help only The Phantom Detective could give!
The Murder Syndicate was originally published in the December 1938 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
