My second Doc Savage. The level of action is almost unbearable. Savage and his crew narrowly escape mortal danger in almost every chapter. In the dumbest escape, Monk is shot by a firing squad. Everyone leaves the room, and he gets up and brushes himself off. He was wearing body armor. Very silly book. Sometimes I was quite amused by it and other times I was deadly bored.
Steve Bergstrom
More wholesale and somewhat gruesome slaughter than in others in the series. Add to that an overabundance of deus ex machina and I can say that this is likely to be one of the books that Lester Dent did not write.
