His ways are strange. Some think he is only a myth. Yet he is real. He is known only as the Shadow and his methods are unfathomable. The entire underworl trembles at the mere mention of his name. He comes from nowhere, a sinister wraith, defending justice wherever it is threatened. Then he vanishes into the night with a low, mocking peal of laughter signaling unrelenting doom to the wrongdoer.
When a mechanical genius is murdered at the moment of his greatest invention, The Shadow decodes a plan of linked deaths and traps a master Killer in a bizarre and brilliant intrigue.
