Details

Who were the strange raiders wearing the golden uniforms who pulled off the daring theft? And who was their leader, a being of seemingly supernatural abilities? Doc Savage doesn't know--but The Shadow does! Combining forces, the Man of Bronze and the Dark Avenger follow the trail of a superfoe from The Shadow’s past--Shiwan Kahn, the Golden Master, who appeared in no less than four Shadow novels in the pulp era.

The second team-up of two iconic pulp characters. Entirely new story by one of the finest pulp writers we have today.

This adventure jumps back in time by ten years, before the first Shadow/Doc adventure, which begins in 1933. And Shiwan Khan serves as a stand-in for Fu Manchu, which has always been an requested encounter for Doc.

Walter Gibson himself left the idea of a resurrection of Shiwan Kahn--the Golden Master--in one of his last novels. But he never acted on it. Murray loves to pick up these threads and run with them, as we see here. And even Lester Dent gets into the inspiration, as HE left a springboard for this match up.
