Description
Excerpt: Chapter 1. THE SHADOW LISTENS A WEIRD, mellow light pervaded the somber, black?walled room. The glow had a purplish tinge, and its strange rays centered themselves in a single corner, where they reflected the shining surface of a polished tabletop. All was silent in that room. It bore the semblance of a chamber of death; and most mysterious of all was the spectral figure that sat before the table. Clothed in a cloak of jet?black hue, with visage obscured by the broad brim of a black slouch hat, this personage possessed the eerie quality of an apparition. The Shadow was in his sanctum! A ghostly being, shrouded by darkness, he awaited a message from some outside source. The very walls of the room in which The Shadow dwelt seemed to melt away into nothingness.
