faces a grim mass murderer who holds sway over Manhattan — when poisoned drugs paralyze the medical profession and turn New York’s hospitals into a hell of betrayed human sufferers!

For Richard Wentworth was an undiagnosed manic-depressive—if not paranoid schizophrenic—subject to violent mood swings, climbing to unutterable heights of exultation in one scene, then crashing into the blackest depths of despair the next. When the Spider-madness came over him, he might pick up his treasured Stradivarius violin and launch into a night-long serenade to soul-searching. Or, he might putty up his face, don black hat and cape, go out Spidering.
