The FBI is after the Man of Bronze. The U.S. government believes he’s conducting bizarre experiments to transform the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men into brutal, mindless creatures. From posh New York apartments to murky Virginia swamps, Doc Savage races one step ahead of the G-men as he seeks the true evil genius behind the maniacal plot of worldwide terror!

    I liked this one. The mystery is a good one and the pay off a bit pointless but the strength of this one lies in Doc’s going to Washington to insist on being part of the War effort and being denied. Great stuff! It also has one of my favorite pulp lines of late: “There was no sign of life in the adjacent night.” Has a certain poetry to it. Doc also gives a nice speech about war that resonates today. I don’t agree with entirely but is has some validity, I think: “It’s not a thing for one man to take into his hands and try to force by violence upon the rest of the world. That has been proven. Many of the great wars of our day and the past have grown out of that sort of thing. Reform, any reform that is lasting and genuine, must result from the slow development, the molding of the minds and the way of life of all the people as a whole.”
    Good words from Lester Dent’s mind to Doc’s lips. All in all a good Doc. Well worth a read.
