The Blackmail Ring - Maxwell Grant

This book opens slightly differently. The Shadow is at his desk, researching a situation, girasol ring flickering as usual.

A complex web of men involved in corporate affairs are involved in deception and blackmail, ending in murder, where necessary.

The Shadow decides to learn what is going on, with the help of Mann and Vincent. Harry 'professional captive' Vincent figures in the final showdown, which could be out of a G-8 story, and takes a bulllet in the shoulder.

The Shadow has made sure many of the bad guys don't consume any more oxygen.

3 out of 5
