The Shadow #142

Five Ivory Boxes, A Quarter of Eight and Ten Glass Eyes

by Maxwell Grant

The Knight of Darkness proves that crime does not pay in three classic pulp thrillers by Maxwell Grant.

First, The Shadow investigates the mystery of "Five Ivory Boxes" as a murderer returns to exact vengeance on a man already dead!

Then, in "A Quarter of Eight", four pieces of an ancient pirate coin lead to incredible riches -- and deadly danger!

Finally, Lamont Cranston seeks the solution to a seemingly perfect murder in "Ten Glass Eyes."

This instant collector’s item showcases the original color covers by George Rozen, Modest Stein and Walter Swenson and the interior pulp illustrations by Paul Orban and Edd Cartier, with historical commentary by Will Murray.
