Through the chill darkness a deluge of death swept over New York — and men died mysteriously with their brains battered in as the terror struck! For a new, frightful master of the underworld had risen, to paralyze the police and empty the city’s treasure coffers. Over a long period, Richard Wentworth, with the Spider’s weird weapons, had fought those master criminals whom the law could not reach. But never before had he been compelled to challenge the rule of a ruthless raider who left a great metropolis sacked and plundered as he rose to the heights of an emperor, evil and powerful — invincible in his systematic scheme of slaughter and destruction! The Silver Death Rain is torn from the pages of the March, 1939 issue of The Spider magazine.
