3.0 out of 5 stars one of the better early Savage novels, November 13, 2011
This review is from: Death In Silver (Mass Market Paperback)
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.
