One of the early books, #20 by the original story numbering. The villains were a little over the top, even for a Doc Savage story, but the identity of the lead villain was a good mystery. In some ways a couple of the backup characters were more entertaining than Doc and his gang, but still a fun read. Also notable for being the earliest story without all of Doc's crew in the original stories.

Have always loved Doc Savage. My Dad introduced me to "The Man of Bronze" when I was a teenager. The hardback copies are great because of the durability factor and the illustrations are a beautiful touch.

Doc Savage is a very unique individual. With his bronze skin, off-the-scale intellect, and strength to match, he has dedicated his life to rooting out all forms of evil. His adventures were also an important part of 1930s pulp fiction, which is where this novel was first published.

New York City has seen its share of crime waves, but this is different. This time, the perpetrators are a group of people who wear identical head to toe silver suits, including silver masks that cover their entire heads. They are able to rob an armored car, or kill someone who knows too much, and make a clean getaway. The police have no idea who, or where, they are. The city is in an uproar.

Usually, Doc has five assistants, each of them an expert on their own, to help him in his never-ending battle against evil. This time, three of them are overseas, and the others, Ham and Monk, spend part of the book being kidnapped. Doc survives several assassination attempts; the gang's leader knows never to underestimate Doc Savage. The story shifts to the bottom of the East River in Manhattan, where a battle takes place between the occupants of a couple of submarines.

A certain shipping company has a record of getting close to a competitor, interested in a merger. Suddenly, the other owner suffers an "untimely demise," or the other company suffers a severe financial setback, allowing it to be taken over. As this novel opens, another shipping company owner, whose shipyard was used for a secret purpose, gets cold feet, and tells "Mr. Big" that he is going to the police. Moments later, his office, with him in it, is destroyed by a massive explosion.

This one is pretty good. I can easily see this novel serialized over three or four months in a pulp magazine, right next to a science fiction, detective, or sports pulp magazine. For those who appreciate such literature, this has plenty of action, and is worth checking out.

Originally published in October 1934 in 'Doc Savage' magazine, 'Silver' was reprinted by Bantam in July 1968, with (as always) an arresting cover by James Bama.

A gang of criminals known as 'The Silver Deaths-Heads' are wreaking mayhem in New York City, carrying out violent robberies of armored cars, blowing up ships, and, as the novel opens, even a good chunk of a skyscraper. The destruction attracts the attention of Monk and Ham, who soon violently tangle with minions of the Deaths-Heads.

Doc Savage gets drawn into the fray, which does not please Ull, eccentric genius and the field commander of the Deaths-Heads. Ull sets out to eliminate The Man of Bronze...and anyone else who gets in his way.

'Death' is one of the better Savage novels released in the early 30s. Lester Dent's writing is crisp, the plot moves along at a good pace, and there are the usual last-page revelations as to the identity of the criminal mastermind.

Vintage Doc, well worth picking up.
