Shadow: 1994 Movie Adaptation (Children)


Book adaptation of The Shadow (1994 Movie).

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...?

Perhaps only a man on intimate terms with evil himself. Such a man is Lamont Cranston, cold-blooded czar of a criminal empire -- until a powerful Far Eastern mystic makes the ganglord his prisoner, and his disciple in the occult arts that will change his life forever.
