The Shadow has always known what evil lurks in the hearts of men... until
now! When his mystic powers fail, the original masked crime-fighter travels the
globe alongside his sidekick, WWI ace pilot Miles Crofton, on a bloody search
for answers. From Nepal, where the Shadow's efforts to reconnect with his
spiritual masters leads to a confrontation with opium smugglers, they travel to
the frontlines of the Spanish Civil War in pursuit of arms dealers and a
would-be dictator. Who is the maniacal El Rey, who plots to rise from the debris
of war as his battle-ravaged nation's supreme ruler? And how will the Shadow
dispense justice when he discovers that a former flame is El Rey's brutal
enforcer, the Black Sparrow? Hard-boiled crime novelist Victor Gischler raises
the definitive pulp hero to new heights of crime noir glory!
