said. She knew this man only as Mr. Vardis, a quiet, unobtrusive gentleman of wealth, with powerful affiliations. It was he who had been instrumental in bringing her to the attention of influential booking agents, resulting in her engagement by "Duke" Marcy for the Diamond Club.

She was not aware--nor was anybody else in the world, for that matter--that the firm mouth, the aquiline, masterful nose, the high forehead and the coal-black hair of the mysterious Mr. Vardis were an elaborate disguise masking the features of a being even more mysterious.

I love the old pulps; Doc Savage, the Spider, the Shadow, and here is another one of the classics: Secret Agent X.

The Murder Monster was the tenth story to appear in the 41 issues of Secret Agent X Magazine published between February 1934 and March 1939. Written by several different authors, the stories always appeared authored under the name, Brant House. However, the real authors were Paul Chadwick, G. T. Fleming-Roberts, Emile C. Tepperman or Wayne Rogers.

The Murder Monster is a tale of Depression-era New York City where "robots" led by a mechanical man that can make people burst into deadly flames terrorize the Big Apple with lots of crime and a huge body count.

If you like bigger than life heroes and tales with lots of action, The Murder Monster is well worth the read.
