The Doom Director
by G. T. Fleming-Roberts writing as Brant House
His true face unknown, his identity forever buried in a secret government file, Secret Agent “X” came back from the dead to take on the sinister sadists and evil extortionists who prey on innocent Americans. A master of disguise who carries a non-lethal gas gun, “X” the unknown is backed by a cabal of wealthy citizens and is answerable only to the shadowy K-9 in Washington.
Invisible doom came to change the living into strangled, purple-faced gallows corpses. And Agent “X”’s cunning inventions and courage were falling before the wile of a fear-mad killer, who could send his unseen death to Sing Sing in time to cheat even the electric chair.
The enigma of enigmas, Secret Agent “X” has been deputized by a high government official to battle the darkest, most diabolical enemies of America before they sink their poisonous fangs into the nation’s healthy core. Faceless and unsung, “X” infiltrates these threats in a bewildering array of disguises.
Operating out of the supposedly haunted Montgomery Mansion, Secret Agent “X” ventures forth in a bewildering array of false identities to infiltrate the darkest underbelly of the underworld—and destroy it from within. A master investigator of a thousand guises and surprises. The only clue to his true identity is his haunting whistle…..
Secret Agent “X”s true role as a crimefighter was kept from most people. Only a select few, including reporter Betty Dale and his mysterious handler, K-9, were truly aware of “X”’s mission against evil.
Though Paul Chadwick was the creator of Secret Agent “X”, other well known Pulp writers also added their own contributions to the canon. All writing under the “Brant House name”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts, Emile C. Tepperman, and Wayne Rogers wrote Secret Agent “X” tales as well over the 41 story run.
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of The Doom Director, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, August 1936 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.
