Secret Agent "X" #5 Audiobook
City of the Living Dead
by Paul Chadwick writing as Brant House
Read by Milton Bagby
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!
Behind the white fangs of escaped jungle beasts lurked an unseen but hideous menace. A menace that made cravens of men and women—sending them cringing to their shattered homes under the brutal lash of Fear in the City of the Sleeping Death. And back of the terror of a dread epidemic, Secret Agent “X” glimpsed the shadow of a criminal plot more horrible than any he had ever known.
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.
A nameless mystery man with a wartime past in the Intelligence service, declared dead by the Department of Justice, and backed by a shadowy group of powerful philanthropists, Secret Agent “X” took on the toughest assignments of the dirty thirties. A past master of disguise, he infiltrated the Underworld to crush crime in all of its hideous manifestations.

For Secret Agent “X”, Rose Wyn decided to pit him against villains who were maestros of unbridled horror. Melodrama was the rule of the day. But Secret Agent “X” plunged into maelstroms of raw bloodlust undreamed of by The Shadow and Doc Savage. His foes were truly depraved. Terrorists. Torturers. Extortionists. Kidnappers. Stranglers. Fiends. Arsonists. These were the types of torn-from-the-tabloids master criminals “X” hunted. It was grim fare.
Follow the Man of a Thousand Faces as he confronts the menace of City of the Living Dead, ripped from the pages of Secret Agent “X” magazine, June 1934 and read with chilling intensity by Milton Bagby.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over two dozen audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.

“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”

When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer.  In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books.  Milton and his wife live in Nashville.

5 of 5 "X" Marks the Spot! April 3, 2024
Reviewer: Ian from Pennsylvania, USA  
Fantastic introduction to Secret Agent X, both the series and its appeal as an audio book! I've really grown to enjoy the audio-book productions of Radio Archives, and this story was no exception! Agent X battles giant apes spreading diseases at the behest of an insidious cabal of criminals, and your narrator/star is there to take you through the fast paced action scene by scene! Highly recommended!
