Attic > The Shadow Reprint #23: Smugglers of Death / The Blackmail King

by Maxwell Grant

"The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow Knows!"

The Knight of Darkness returns in two classic pulp thrillers by Walter B. Gibson writing as "Maxwell Grant."

First, a sexy champion swimmer teams up with The Shadow to investigate a murderous female gem-runner and her "Smugglers of Death." Then, Lamont Cranston and Margot Lane battle a sinister extortionist to unmask "The Blackmail King."

BONUS: a lost thriller from the Golden Age of Radio. This instant collector's item also features a foreword by Margot Stevenson (Orson Welles' "lovely Margot Lane"), the original color pulp covers by Graves Gladney and George Rozen, the classic interior illustrations by Edd Cartier and Paul Orban, and historical commentary by Anthony Tollin and Will Murray.
