The Spider Vs. The Empire State

By Norvell Page

The Empire StateThey said it couldn’t happen here. Then they said one man couldn’t stop it! Richard Wentworth spent his vigilante career as The Spider always in the shadows. Now evil acted in broad daylight. The Party of Justice swept into office, rewriting the laws of New York state overnight to benefit their criminal backers and make slaves of its people. This American Reichstag gave itself sweeping powers and raised a private army to exert its malevolent will. How could The Spider hope to stop a criminal conspiracy as big as the state itself? This time The Master of Men would go beyond taking the lives of evildoers… by bringing Hope to the tyrannized citizens of the Empire State!

Originally published in three consecutive months of The Spider Magazine, the novels are collected in book form for the first time!
