The Shadow #17

The Fate Joss / The Golden Pagoda

by Maxwell Grant

"As you sow evil, so shall you reap evil! Crime does not pay. The Shadow Knows!"

The Dark Avenger known to Asians as Ying Ko investigates deadly Chinatown mysteries in two intriguing pulp novels by Walter B. Gibson. First, the Shadow investigates the strange disappearances and reappearances of a half-ton golden idol. What are the incredible secrets of "The Fate Joss" and the mysterious Dr. Roy Tam?

Then, a miniature "Golden Pagoda" leads The Shadow and his agents through a series of bizarre deathtraps into the realm of the infamous brigand Li Hoang.

In supporting features, Pulp-historian Will Murray examines The Shadow's many investigations into the mysteries of Chinatown, while series editor Anthony Tollin provides a history of Myra Reldon, The Shadow's first female agent. This classic reprint also reproduces both color pulp covers by George Rozen and all the interior illustrations by legendary artists Tom Lovell and Edd Cartier.
