The Spider #61 Audiobook
The Spider at Bay
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge
Read by Nick Santa Maria
Deeper and deeper New York had sunk in the grip of the Underworld monarch — until the law was licked at last! But in that moment of desperation, Richard Wentworth, as the Spider, resolved to fight the underworld with its own savage weapons. With New York’s own police commissioner at his side, the Spider raised a fighting legion of honest men sworn to take the law into their own hands!
The great pulp magazines of the 1930s and 40s produced a number of heroes, but none as action-oriented as the Spider. For almost exactly a decade, the Spider was the scourge of the Underworld, doling out his own particular brand of justice and imprinting his dreaded red Spider seal on the foreheads of those he has killed for the good of mankind.
The stories plunge along headfirst aboard an emotional roller coaster. Oriental death-traps, treacherously alluring women, and rabid, machine-gun toting gangsters are all part of a typical day for the hero; Wentworth is frequently suspected of being the dreaded Spider, his home is periodically destroyed, his servants and friends tortured.
One of the things that sets the Spider apart from other hero characters is magnitude; the villains commit acts of destruction on a grand scale, sinking whole ocean liners, toppling entire buildings, wiping out entire towns with germ warfare.
This thrilling Spider audiobook features acclaimed voice talent Nick Santa Maria, who has made the Spider his own! The Spider at Bay originally published in The Spider magazine, October, 1938.
