Nice Performance of Another Classic Doc Savage

Marc Vietor does a nice job with this one. The story is not one of my personal favorites in the Doc Savage series, but it is still fun. Doc and his men uncover a secret cult! How much more pulpy can you get? I do wish Audible would do more of these with a multi voiced cast. Still, I am thrilled to see these productions of these classic adventures. My fingers are crossed there are more recordings from this series and Walter Gibson's The Shadow as well.

Man of Bronze vs. Man Of Gold

This is an interesting pulp selection from circa 1941 or so. A mysterious "golden Man" is found in the sea and knows things that he should not be able to know. Apparently seeing the future, Soon Monk and Ham at locked up in a South American prison and the mystery man disappears. Eventually Doc gets involved to solve the mystery.

This is an interesting book in that this is one of the feew times that I can recall that Doc is thrown for a loop when the mystery man starts telling him things that Doc felt were known to no one. As a result he is a lot less sure of his plan. An interesting change of pace for the normally stoic man who always has a plan.

Good narration.
Decent story - although not one of the more far fetched high adventure types, despite the premise. Mostly Doc and company versus gangsters and a couple impossible happenings.

Recommended if you like the pulps.
Here is hoping that they put out more soon.

Golden man

Loved the story and performance. Enjoyed the book and Audible. Remember the story when I read it in the late 70's and early 80's.
