The Phantom Detective #64 Audiobook
The Front Page Murders
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!
Ruthless racketeers weave their slimy tentacles about the nation’s greatest baseball stars as the Phantom pitches into the battle of his life to rid the sport of criminal parasites! All bases are loaded with death as The World’s Greatest Sleuth takes a swing for justice!
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, including Mr. Death and Inspector Allhoff.
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 Front Page Murders’ was originally published in the June 1938 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
