They called Secret Agent “X”, the Man of the Thousand Faces. Armed with his irresistible gas gun, wearing impenetrable disguises, “X” infiltrates the darkest corners of the Underworld to crush all crime czars!
From the mysterious private room in a sanitarium, the Faceless Man emerges to spread a terror trail through a metropolis. Secret Agent “X” battles to stop that hideous murder march. The Agent can duplicate any human face...except in this instance...there is no face to duplicate.
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…..
Although Paul Chadwick created Secret Agent “X”, G. T. Fleming-Roberts contributed the most stories to the character’s canon, numbering at least twenty. Known as a mystery/crime writer for most of his career, Fleming-Roberts also contributed to series characters other than “X”. Most notably, Diamondstone the Magician, The Green Ghost, and Jeffrey Wren were crime solvers of a sort that Fleming-Roberts enjoyed creating; magician detectives. This interest in slightly different crime tales probably contributed a great deal to Fleming-Roberts’ work on Secret Agent “X”.
