The Golden Vulture was very good. Crime, Insured was ok, but I like how they penetrated the Shadow's Sanctum in that story. The Shadow Knows!

I just finished reading this first book and cannot wait to get another. The Shadow, while different form the radio character, is properly mysterious and powerful. The criminal masterminds are the type of arch fiends you expect in pulp fiction. There are many more sub characters than were portrayed on radio but they too add to the enjoyment. These are just highly enjoyable well written stories that are perfect for an afternoon or evening when you are in the mood for an exotic mystery.

A new re-launching of the old Shadow and Doc Savage stories by Nostalgia Ventures. Each book in the series consists of two full length stories plus a feature of some sort between the two. I gre up reading the Doc Savage books and they were a blast, but I had never read any of The Shadow. This one seemed a natural since one of the stories was by Lester Dent (who penned most of the Doc Savage boos as Kenneth Robeson). The Shadow stories are (forgive the pun) darker than the Doc Savage books. Slam bang action from start to finish and super-crimanals in each story. These pulp stories were the fore-runners of the comic book hero's like Batman and Captain America. In "Crime, Insured" we have the Shadow and his associates up against a gangster who- I kid you not- insures other criminals against The Shadow breaking up their crimes! Golden Vulture pits The Shadow against a super-villain by the Golden Vulture name. Mind you- Steinbeck this is not. But they are fun, exciting reads that keep you going.
