A mysterious person known only as Mox is murdering inventors. Who is Mox, and what is behind the killings? This is a quick read with some genuinely creepy moments and a neat twist ending.

One of the best Shadow stories with a sequel that pretty much has no story relation to this one. Inventors are persuaded to come to a mansion with their plans for money to complete them.

I loved this book! The writing is so well composed that The Shadow seems to shift in and out and around you and the book. The mystery is pure comic book with monster plot holes. Despite the troubles, this book is so great to read, that I have to recommend it.

The biggest problem with the entire book is that it seems the writer was more interested in writing about The Shadow than anything else. Certainly the best writing involves the hero. Otherwise there's a "evil fiend", victims and others tryin

When it comes to pulp heroes there are 2 or 3 great standouts and the Shadow is one of those. The stories are fast paced and action filled. The mystery just adds to the excitement. With his army of agents to help the Shadow never lets you down for a great read. Highly recommended
