The Spider #47 Audiobook
Slaves of the Black Monarch
writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Ruthless, invulnerable, that Scarred Hand reached out to destroy the entire law machine of New York — blasting into merciless oblivion those juries which dared convict even a single criminal. In that twilight of terror, when empty cells yawned for the felons who never arrived, and helpless Justice hid her bloodied head — no one but Richard Wentworth could combat this invisible Juggernaut which had paralyzed five mighty boroughs. Once more, in the
weird vestments, Wentworth sets out — this time to annihilate a brain so evil that it is encased in two heads!
By 1937, Richard Wentworth had been operating as the
for nearly four years. He had been through everything a good pulp hero could expect to face. Malevolent master villains. Sinister Asian world conquerors. Diabolical mad scientists. And of course since the
was a wanted criminal, endless 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 seemed to thrive on conditions of continuous peril. Yes, he did put down his mask and guns a time or two, vowing never to become the dreaded
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.
For two years, Norvell W. Page and his understudy, Wayne Rogers, alternated on writing the
novels. This was after Page came back from a hiatus in the middle of 1937.
Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem and mystery that perfectly evokes 1937 Manhattan.
