The Spider #49 Audiobook
The City That Dared Not Eat
writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Famine marched through America’s metropolis, and the starving multitudes who sat down to eat found only the choice of empty plates — or a murder-menu! Richard Wentworth, with the whimpering chorus of unfed babies ringing in his haunted ears, picked up once more the
eerie weapons of mercy — to fight a new and awful figure in the field of crime, a criminal red
who, with a thousand unknown assistants, was contaminating the city’s food supply!
While the Spider borrowed his black slouch hat and cloak from the already thriving Shadow, the character was significantly different.
stories are about action, 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 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. And indeed, that fear nearly becomes fact on several occasions.
