The Living Shadow - Maxwell Grant

A fabulous, atmospheric opening to this book, when The Shadow appears and rescues the despondent Harry Vincent and gives him a new purposes. Multiple threads run throughout, from the points of view of both the protagonists, and the antagonists. There is also a Shadow point of view, but only observational. Throw in a death trap, an excellent car chase, a fun punchup in a lunch wagon, of all places, and a not so obvious denoument, and this is a very pleasing experience.

4 out of 5
