Will Murray's Pulp Classics #17
The Spider Audiobook
#10 The Corpse Cargo - July 1934Read by Nick Santa Maria and Robin Riker. Liner Notes by Will Murray
During his ferocious first year fighting crime, The Spider faced the most amazing array of supercriminals ever spawned. The Black Death. The Red Mask. The Tarantula. The Fly....Few were as memorable as the 20th Century corsair called Captain Kidd. She - yes, she! - embarked on a campaign of cruelty unmatched in pulp history.
It began with the torture-killing of a innocent young boy - a loyal member of the Spider Club. The weapon employed was a knife with eerie electrical properties. Discovering the hapless body, Richard Wentworth vowed to avenge this insult to The "Spider's" power.
But Captain Kidd struck first! When a train roars into Grand Central Station, out of control and crashing to a brutal halt, authorities discover that everyone aboard, from the engineer and crew to the passengers, are cold corpses-electrified by a weird new weapon called the Green Fire!
