Publisher's Summary

Thousands of busy persons bent over their desks in the tallest building in the world, conducting the commerce of the nation, when suddenly the steel girders began to creak and twist, and the gigantic edifice swayed giddily in the rising wind. Never before had criminal brains devised a more cunning or a more horrible weapon to garner their ill-gotten treasures. And never before was the Spider so strenuously put to test - for the master, the man behind the devastation and death, eluded every suspicion, foresaw every contingency, and left no telltale clues behind him as he ravaged, slayed, and pillaged....
Richard Wentworth, working for once hand in hand with the organized forces of law and order, fights the grimmest battle of his long career. Can the Spider avenge the countless dead who have already fallen? Can he bring the murder master to the justice he so richly deserves?
Norvell W. Page described him this way: Richard Wentworth was a nemesis of the night, a swift and secret avenger who meted out lethal justice to those of the underworld who dared to raise their hands against humanity; he was the man known throughout half the civilized world as the Spider, and tonight he wore the disguise that would instantly identify him as that dread killer. A long, black cape covered twisted shoulders. A broad-brimmed hat tightly pulled down over a lank wig shadowed a beak-nosed face. The eyes that glittered there were steely with bitter hatred. As for Wentworth himself, he believed in his mission implicitly: He was, he told himself, no longer a human being but a cause. He was the Spider! He must live to defend humanity....
Nick Santa Maria reads this exciting suspense story of murder, mayhem, and mystery that perfectly evokes 1935 Manhattan: "The City Destroyer", originally published in The Spider magazine, January 1935.
