The Jade Ogre
A desperate plea for help plunges Doc Savage into a maelstrom of horror aboard the Hongkong-bound liner Mandarin, where the depraved minions of the phantom predator, Quon, hold sway. As innocent passengers succumb to the insidious Jade Fever, and ghost-green hands pursue Doc’s beautiful cousin, Patricia, the mighty Man of Bronze races to solve a riddle that defies reason. For deep in the spider-haunted ruins of faraway Cambodia broods a twisted, armless creature with a face of jade — the Jade Ogre — whose power to project deadly, disembodied arms to any place on earth makes him the most dangerous foe Doc Savage has ever faced!
The Frightened Fish
The ravings of a madman and the absence of all sea life at a Massachusetts fishing village lure Doc Savage and his crew to a small New England island bristling with gunmen, on a perilous submarine journey through the Panama Canal, and to the ravage coasts of Occupied Japan. There they fall into the clutches of an evil genius long believed dead, a shadowy figure who masterminded World War II… and now wants to plunge humanity into a new Armageddon. Trained by the same teacher, both possessed of the same genius, Doc Savage and this man have fought before. And now, as the world is about to lurch into another global war, Doc Savage must defeat his most loathsome adversary yet…
