The Man of Bronze and his cousin Pat face an inordinate challenge: a machine that makes all modern weapons worthless. A gang of international thieves in control of the invention are shooting high: World Control.
“As it turned out, Lester Dent didn’t just restructure The Motion Menace, he scrapped Johnson’s version entirely, though he kept the central idea and title, and wrote it anew. The published novel is thus wholly in Dent’s style with no traces of Johnson evident. It begins, not with Doc Savage in New York, but with Pat Savage in Shanghai, China! Interestingly enough, though the manuscript was submitted to Street & Smith in 1936, it did not see print until 1938.” — Will Murray, Writings in Bronze
