The Phantom Detective #88 Audiobook
The Phantom Hits Murder Steel
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!
Death, destruction and sabotage in the great invincible steel mills follow in the wake of a fiendish murder mob — and an industrial secret of vast importance is the hub of a baffling murder mystery! Follow The Phantom Detective as he smashes through the darkness of the underworld to the solution of an amazing case!
Even though he was indeed a one-man army against crime, The Phantom Detective did not live in the world alone. From the beginning, the crimefighter’s identity was known to one man. A friend of his father’s, Frank Havens was the powerful publisher of The Clarion, the city’s newspaper. He was also the man who not only knew the Phantom Detective’s identity, but he had also suggested Van Loan take on a case to solve that had the police baffled. Havens’ suggestion not only led his young charge to solve the case, but also to become The Phantom Detective! The connection with Havens would also provide The Phantom Detective with a love interest and, in some stories, somewhat of a partner. Muriel Havens was not only Frank’s daughter, but also proved to be The Phantom Detective’s love interest and, in many instances, a near equal rather than a damsel in distress. Another character that Havens provides the connection for is tough guy and sometimes hardboiled Clarion reporter Steve Huston. By 1939, comic books had begun influencing Pulp magazine heroes to a degree. This meant The Phantom Detective acquired a sidekick, a boy named Chip Dorlan, a character that would age as stories progressed. Another ally that appeared several times was Jerry Lannigan, once Van Loan’s personal mechanic and pilot.
‘The Phantom Hits Murder Steel’ was originally published in the June 1940 issue of The Phantom Detective Magazine and is read with pulse pounding intensity by award winning voice actor Milton Bagby.
