12 tales of the masked hero, as he smashes his way through spy-rings and other fiendish plots to destroy America!

In the spy vs. spy world of the late 1930s, this masked hero prowled the underworld, dressed in an "amorphous fluttering black robe, bat-like, [with] a gray-masked head through whose twin eye-slits menace glinted." But it was not so much the costume as the "hand, ebony-black in its glove--but for the finger curled around the trigger of that gun. That finger was not black but vividly, awesomely scarlet." (From "Caged Horror.") Powerful stuff in those days!

Included in this volume:

SECOND-HAND DEATH
DEATH RIDES THE SOUND
RED FINGER -- DEATH DEALER
CAGED HORROR
DEATH'S RED FINGER
RED FINGER MEETS HIS MATCH
RED FINGER -- SPY POISON!
LOCKED IN WITH DEATH
DEATH'S TOY SHOP
ENVOY OF DOOM
THE SPY WHO SOLD DEATH
RED FINGER'S MURDER MESSENGER

A note to the culturally sensitive: Some of these stories contain elements of "yellow peril" racism. This series originally appeared in the Operator #5 pulp magazine between 1934 and 1938. They are products of their era and are definitely NOT politically correct by today's standards. You have been warned!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
