The Black Master


Aided by legman Harry Vincent and desk-man Claude Fellows, The Shadow follows a Chinese coin and a trail of dead men to an explosive final, swift and surprising... a headlong confrontation with one of the most cunning brains in gangland. An evil genius who is no less a master of disguise than the mysterious man in black. But THE SHADOW KNOWS, and uses the oldest trick of all to trap the spider in his web.
