Everything you expect from The Spider! Mayhem, death, destruction, and purple prose. When it comes The Spider novels, one can only compare them with other Spider novels. They are ripping yarns that don't even pretend to be what snootier readers call "literature," nor do they try to live up to the lofty standards of so many murder mysteries.

At some point, two full-length novels from The Spider magazine were reprinted in The Spider: Master of Men! Their inclusion in said volume was somewhat fortuitous because both had similar themes. In both cases, the Spider (vigilante who posed as a super-criminal prior to The Shadow and The Green Hornet ) finds himself at a loss in dealing with a criminal mastermind.

Love the cover picture of the Spider fighting the giant serpent!

"Serpent of Destruction" is the seventh Spider novel and was originally published in April 1934.

The gangs of New York City are joining together to push the narcotics trade and appear to have connections elsewhere. So, Wentworth travels to Washington DC to discuss the situation with the narcotics division of the Department of Justice, where he has "special powers" with the department.
Despite the spelling of his name, it seems compelling that head of the division is named Jim Hendricks. Through this interaction, the Spider learns that there is a burst of narcotics everywhere across the US from coast to coast and border to border. Even as the Spider is getting started on resolving this super-crime wave over a hundred narcotic agents have been murdered, cutting the US narcotics agents in half. The Bloody Serpent is the lead who organized all the gangs into "one vast lonesome army."

After the usual frantic escapades, the Spider brings down the criminal empire that is driving the narcotics trade and murders. As with "The Citadel of Death," the organization of merged gangs would necessarily have to be huge. At best, the Spider/Wentworth brings down its head and the NY chapter, but according to this tale, it is sufficient to destroy the national-wide group. Again, though, Norvell Page's strong dialogue constantly presses the story forward so that it is enjoyable even if bits of logic are missing from it.

Note: The Spider's venom is developed in Chapter 9 as an agent for torture and terrorizing of the underworld.

I must admit to being slightly disappointed that there was no giant snake in this story!

The Spider is really quite restrained for 3/4 of this book, refraining mostly from blowing people away.

Makes up for that though: " He fired twice like lightning before the flame died and like lightning bolts his bullets sped, slamming two men into bloody death."

In the final confrontation, The Spider has a bunch of gangsters in the dark, at the mercy of his Spider sting, and comes up with a classic: ""There is a way to save yourselves," Wentworth said slowly, letting each word sink in. "Those who confess will be allowed to go to the prison I have built in the cellar and await police. Those who resist shall die of the Spider's sting. There are dictographs here, ready to record what you say. Just speak."

"I'll kill the first man that speaks!" The Chief's voice cut through the thick silence like a knife.

Wentworth sent once more his eerie laughter into the room. "But not as slowly as I will!"
