Why are people being murdered for a rented, moth-eaten ape costume? Doc and his crew battle to unmask the deadly mystery — and to keep a billion-dollar scientific breakthrough out of the hands of gangland gorillas.
In the mysterious land of the sphinx, Doc Savage and his crew confront a sinister foe — who uses a pharaoh’s curse and machine guns to carry out his evil will. Doc trails the malevolent genius to his remote hideout, just as his friends are scheduled for sacrifice to bloodthirsty gods!
War is about to break out in the Middle East — unless Doc and his men can stop a fanatic from giving the word to his millions of crazed followers. Doc’s quest to find the madman becomes a terrifying race to save the world from total annihilation!
Suddenly, a creature of pure evil has materialized in our world! Can Doc dive into the mysterious land of the occult to confront a demon — before the demon ends his brilliant career?
The Bantam cover of this novel reuses a part of the artwork from the Bantam edition of “The Green Death.”
The corpse of a young man in a beauty parlor, an ice pick, a camera, plants, chemistry, and Doc’s meddlesome cousin Pat Savage all add up to a frightening plot — and an all-out mission to rescue the Man of Bronze!
