A mysterious man with a face like a pre-Columbian stone image lures Doc and his crew to a madman’s secret empire deep in the Amazon jungles — where seven of the world’s foremost explorers have inexplicably vanished. Is Doc next?
A mysterious “sea monster” is sighted by fishermen in the Gulf of Mexico. Then a pirated submarine, using a powerful secret weapon, begins to terrorize shipping along the entire Atlantic seaboard. Hundreds die as warships of all nations join together to find and destroy the deadly menace. The chief suspects: Doc Savage and his loyal crew!
Graduates of Doc’s college for criminals who revert to their former identities. A master trickster who will stop at nothing to further his evil plans. A ferocious monster that turns men’s minds to mush. All are part of a cunning scheme which the Man of Bronze and his loyal companions must smash — or die trying.
It came out of nowhere and turned men into mummies. It threatened the construction of the mighty Yellow River Dam. But when it came after Hardrock Hennesey, the tough little mucker summoned the Man of Bronze — the sensational mind who could smash the diabolical forces behind the mind-boggling mystery.
The Headless Horseman rides again in Sleepy Hollow — this time streaking down the sky with flashing speed causing destruction and horror wherever he lands. Here is a puzzle worthy of the penetrating powers of the Man of Bronze — a deception so devious it would have to be solved on two continents.
From the frozen heart of the American continent comes a nameless prehistoric terror of unspeakable savagery, leaving a broken trail of mangled victims that shocks and baffles the world. Only the superhuman Man of Bronze can meet this horrifying menace on its own bloody ground — and uncover the even greater evil that spawned it.
Men by the name of Smith were being knocked off all over town. And they were all killed by lightning — lightening that entered a room without leaving any marks, on a day when there was no lightning. As the Man of Bronze penetrated ever closer to the heart of this mystery, he was scared. For he knew he was closer to death than possibly at any other time in his hair-raising career.
A circus performer, a state governor and a respected banker — all murdered in the same mysterious way. As the Man of Bronze and his courageous crew rush to uncover the fiendish mastermind responsible, they are drawn more tightly into a web of awesome terror.
