A tribute to Orson Welles as The Shadow! Top 100 Kindle Short Reads > 30 minutes > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense. The short story that introduced the mesmerizing Man of the Mist.
It's the mid-1930s and Curly Woods, Ken Maynard, Hoot Gibson and other Hollywood Cowboy Detectives characters, along with radio listeners across America, tune in every Wednesday night to hear the wildly popular adventures of The Man of the Mist, a crime-fighter with hypnotic powers who becomes almost invisible in the dark.
Radio listeners are under the impression that the amazing detective with hypnotic powers is a fictional character. This manuscript should set the record straight and correct that misconception.
There is a real Man of the Mist. All of the characters created on the radio program are based on real people who, for their own safety, are referred to by fictitious names. On a monthly basis, program writers meet with him and his spunky secretary, "Moxie,” to listen to reports on their latest adventures and transcribe them for broadcast. The following story is true and should be considered a warning to all who think they can defeat law and justice.
