The Spider #113 Audiobook
Secret City of Crime
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Nowhere in all the world is there a street so viciously bizarre as Easy Street. Buried deep in the sub-basements of a great New York skyscraper is this carnival-like arcade of crookdom . . . where you can buy firearms, grenades, crackman’s tools . . . where there are schools to teach you how to commit murder — and get away with it! Go with the Spider as he crashes into this amazing backwash of crime — to learn of a massacre so bloody and gruesome that its success would shock even a war-torn world. . . . You’ve never before heard anything like it. And the Spider’s frantic efforts to save a train load of rush-hour subway passengers from destruction sets a new high in the Spider’s dramatic adventures!
The most compelling of the classic pulp heroes, Richard Wentworth had a fiancé, a coterie of equally committed aides, and a tense relationship with New York Police Commissioner Stanley Kirkpatrick, Wentworth’s best friend, but also a dedicated lawman sworn to send the Spider to the electric chair—no matter who he turns out to be.
These riveting stories ran the gamut of incendiary thrillers to ultra-violent showdowns between an obsessed superhero and his depraved arch-foes. With the repeal of Prohibition, wealthy gangsters are in search for new rackets. And standing ready to keep them in check, the dreaded Spider.
Nick Santa Maria brings the action to vibrant life, narrating with a fever-pitch intensity. Secret City of Crime originally published in The Spider magazine, February, 1943.
