The Phantom Detective #133 Audiobook
The Case of the Poison Formula
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!
When death-dealing drugs are insidiously substituted for an elixir of healing, the resulting chaos and tragedy call for the Phantom Detective’s keen wit and fighting courage. Follow the exciting exploits of the Masked Nemesis of the Underworld as he battles to foil a sinister lethal conspiracy!
Like most Pulp characters, The Phantom Detective came to life thanks to the words and imaginations of multiple writers. Although not official, this character may hold the record for most writers to pen his adventures under one of two house names. The first eleven stories were written by G. Wayman Jones, according to credits given on the cover. D. L. Champion, the pen name of Jack D’arcy, actually penned the majority of those first eleven stories. Known for writing with both a certain quirkiness and attention to fast paced storytelling, Champion would go on to be known for other pulp creations. With issue twelve of The Phantom Detective, however, both the house name and the consistency of authors changed. Now being credited to ‘Robert Wallace’, a multitude of authors actually contributed to the somewhat erratic legacy of The Phantom Detective until the magazine ended in 1953. Writers attributed to have written most of these tales include Laurence Donovan, Edwin V. Burkholder, Norman A. Daniels, who wrote more than 36 of them, Anatole F. Feldman, C. S. Montanye, and Laurence Donovan. Other notable pulp authors contributed a few tales along the way as well, including Ryerson Johnson, Henry Kuttner, Ralph Oppenheim, Norvell W. Page, Paul Chadwick, Paul Ernst, Ray Cummings, and Emile C. Tepperman.
‘The Case of the Poison Formula’ was originally published in the December 1945 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor 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 several hundred audiobook projects and is a 2017 Audie Awards winner, the audiobook industry's highest award. 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 many 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.
