Synopsis for "The Crime Oracle"

Out of thin air came this bodiless specter -- a gruesome, learning head that talked! Murder was done at this monster's bidding! But from the mind of The Shadow came knowledge that counterbalanced the twisted brain that was The Head!

Notes

  • At the end of the story, The Shadow saves Cliff Marsland from being shot by a thug. Witnessing this action, Joe Cardona correctly concludes that Marsland is really one of The Shadow's agents.
