The Hand, were five crooks, five "fingers," who had worked together, then had turned to lone-wolf methods. Masters of many rackets, they had separated to build up their individual organizations. One by one, starting from the little "finger," The Shadow had finished their criminal careers.
- "Pinkey Findlen went in for blackmail. He was fool enough to stay in New York, and The Shadow got him.
- "Ring" Brescott was a murder specialist, in Philadelphia. He went too strong with it; The Shadow finished him.
- "Long Steve" Bydle had a racket out in Chicago, murder for insurance profit. But The Shadow came to town and ended it, along with Steve.
- "Pointer" Trame sunk cargo ships. The Shadow sunk him.
- "Thumb" Gaudrey kidnapped millionaires and a beautiful heiress. The Shadow went south, and so did Gaudrey -- in a hail of bullets.
