Read full description of the books:
I’ve been reading Doc Savage books since I was about 10 years old but took a long vacation from them for no particular reason. As I get older, perhaps, I am becoming more nostalgic, but whatever the reason, I’m happy to be reading these treasures once again.
This one was fairly typical of the middle to later Doc Savage books wherein Doc's adventure includes only two of his five assistants: Monk and Ham. It seemed Lester Dent (under the pen name Kenneth Robeson) preferred this pair of companions for some reason in his later books. Perhaps he enjoyed writing them more due to their constant verbal sniping at each other or perhaps it was easier to write books with fewer good guys to have to bring into the fray.
Regardless, I always enjoy Doc Savage books and this was no exception. The entire plot this time takes place in Los Angeles. Most of the expected tropes are here including Doc’s trilling, his black light contraptions, his knock-out gas, Habeas Corpus and Chemistry, and Doc speaking ancient Mayan to his companions to prevent unwanted eavesdropping. All in all, a pretty good action-oriented mystery from the 1930s.

Read information about the authorKenneth Robeson was the house name used by Street and Smith Publications as the author of their popular character Doc Savage and later The Avenger. Though most Doc Savage stories were written by the author Lester Dent, there were many others who contributed to the series, including:
William G. Bogart
Harold A. Davis
W. Ryerson Johnson
Lester Dent is usually considered to be the creator of Doc Savage. In the 1990s Philip José Farmer wrote a new Doc Savage adventure, but it was published under his own name and not by Robeson. Will Murray has since taken up the pseudonym and continued writing Doc Savage books as Robeson.
All 24 of the original stories featuring The Avenger were written by Paul Ernst, using the Robeson house name. In order to encourage sales Kenneth Robeson was credited on the cover of The Avenger magazine as "the creator of Doc Savage" even though Lester Dent had nothing to do with The Avenger series. In the 1970s, when the series was extended with 12 additional novels, Ron Goulart was hired to become Robeson.
