|The Man of Bronze Returns!|
Working from a complete outline written back in 1935, Will Murray has produced another thrilling exploit of the Man of Bronze. Up until now, Murray has been working from working from unpublished manuscript material found among the papers of Doc Savage originator Lester Dent, but this time he has a new collaborator.
“I knew one of the most wonderful pulp writers ever, Ryerson “Johnny” Johnson,” explains Murray. “We became friends back in the 1970s, when he was in his 70s and I was in college. Johnny ghosted a pair of Doc Savage novels for Lester Dent, and before he died he sold me the rights to an outline Dent never exploited. I saw in this absorbing alternate storyline a rare chance to sequel one of the original Doc adventures. Thus was born The War Makers, which is actually a sequel is no less than three classic Docs!”
All over the Midwest, cars and trucks were crashing–-stopped in their tracks by an inexplicable force! Had some unseen power targeted America’s automotive industry––or was something more sinister at stake?
Summoned to solve the mystery, Doc Savage and his intrepid men follow a trail of terror that winds through the continental United States like a constricting serpent of senseless destruction.
From the nation’s car capital to the Arctic Circle, the Man of Bronze races to stave off a strangely familiar menace only to confront a completely unexpected foe––the enigmatic Baron in Black!
