The Spider #116 Audiobook
The Criminal Horde
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
They formed a corporation of killers, those seven masters of crime whose plan was to loot a city and terrify its people into submission. It was a plan born in the twisted brain of a genius of evil — the Masked Man — whose ruthlessness conceived such a bloody and murderous plot that even the crime-toughened leaders of New York’s hardest gangs quailed and cringed in fear — and became the willing tools of the diabolical Master Leader... Go with Richard Wentworth as he recklessly gambles his own life to corner the Masked Man whose crimes are being wantonly committed in the name of the Spider himself!
By 1943, Richard Wentworth had been operating as the Spider for nearly ten harrowing years. He had been through everything a good pulp hero could expect to face. Malevolent master villains. Sinister Asian world conquerors, mad scientists. And of course since the Spider was a wanted criminal, endless police officials, uniformed cops, homicide detectives and other officers of the law had been pursuing him with single-minded fervor.
A mere mortal would have succumbed back in 1933. Not the indomitable Richard Wentworth. He thrived on conditions of continuous peril. Yes, he did put down his mask and guns a time or two, vowing never to become the Spider again. But the call to battle always made his blood sing, and inevitably the Master of Men returned to battle the underworld in another blazing exploit.
Nick Santa Maria once again brings the Spider to life in The Criminal Horde. Originally published in The Spider magazine, August, 1943.
