The Spider #37 Audiobook
The Devil's Death Dwarfs
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
The most diabolical criminal ever to menace America, Tang-akhmut, the Egyptian, had descended like a blighting plague on Cincinnati. Tang-akhmut, leading a new and terrible army of dwarfed monsters — scourging helpless women with poisoned and barbed whips; who set about systematically to wreck the water supply of the city and then set uncontrollable conflagrations to cover his looting. Richard Wentworth, the Spider, penniless, a man outside the law, once more faces him in single-handed battle!
While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the Shadow, the rest of the character was drastically different. Wentworth 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, often 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; Kirkpatrick himself lives in a state of constant angst for fear that duty will one day force him to send his friend to the electric chair as punishment for the Spider’s crimes.

5 of 5 The Living Pharaoh Tang-akhmut Returns! May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Joseph Baneth Allen from Jacksonville, FL United States  
Just finished listening to "The Spider #37 - The Devil's Death Dwarfs" released by Radio Archives.
Richard Wentworth can't catch a break it seems.  Even though he's still a hunted fugitive thanks to the machinations of The Living Pharaoh Tang-akhmut, Wentworth should have had a reprieve to regroup and clear himself once Tang-akhmut was electrocuted for his horrific crimes.
No such luck.  Tang-akhmut is broken out of the death house and sets up a new base of camp in Cincinnati to begin his horrific crimes anew - all of which hinge upon the kidnapping of a records clerk who works in an obscure water division office.
Nick Santa Maria does his usual outstanding job of bringing each adventure of The Spider to resounding life.
