The Spider #108 Audiobook
Hell Rolls on the Highways!
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
The very structure of our war effort was threatened. Great cargo laden trailer-trucks and mammoth, passenger-filled busses were crashing mysteriously to flaming destruction on our highways! . . . Read how Richard Wentworth, in the sinister robes of the Spider, challenges a mighty crime combine designed to wreck the nation’s overland transport! Read of the Evangelist, who swore to consign the Spider’s soul to hell! And of Kalimumtaz, Hindu tigress in whose pagan hand rested the fate of Wentworth’s every ally — while he himself plunged down a mountain in a fiery coffin!
The Spider stories are all about action, emotional intensity, and pacing. Wentworth himself is strongly emotional, plumbing the thrills of victory as readily, and as deeply, as the depths of despair during his escapades. His long-suffering fiancée, Nita van Sloan, is a worthy character in her own right, though frequently relegated to the traditional role of hostage-bait. As additional exotic spice, Wentworth maintains a Sikh manservant/warrior companion, Ram Singh, as well as chauffeur Ronald Jackson, the sergeant from his old army days. Rounding out the cast of characters is Commissioner of Police Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s staunch friend and the Spider’s greatest adversary.
Once more,the incomparable Nick Santa Maria reads another thrilling Spider exploit. Hell Rolls on the Highways! originally published in The Spider magazine, September, 1942.

Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, it came 3 days after I ordered it!( Standard shipping) Every other one I have ordered has been fantastic, so I'm not worried!
