“Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows. But no one knows The Shadow.
“Cloaked in darkness and mystery, the man in black is a legend to those who have felt his remorseless hand: The Underworld. One step outside the law and many leagues ahead of the police in the battle against crime, he haunts the forbidding canyons of Manhattan with a mocking laugh that strikes terror into the souls of the guilty everywhere.
“With his invisible network of crime fighters who have pledged him their loyalty, The Shadow stalks a trail that begins with a strange Chinese coin and ends with a king’s ransom in jewels. A fortune leading straight into the trap of a brilliant master criminal who has just pulled the job of a lifetime – in another man’s skin! Has The Shadow met his match?”
–From the back cover of the 1974 Pyramid Books edition.
