Quote1 Burke, I have paid you well because I wanted intelligent cooperation. You have done your part. This is only the second time that you have met me. I want your honest opinion. Do you trust me? Would you work for me, faithfully, without question? Keeping all our dealings confidential. Then I can tell you my real purpose in setting you up in business. Burke, I am a criminologist. I have my own way of dealing with crime. Those who work for me must always obey me implicitly -- even though they may not understand my motives. Even though they may face danger! Quote2
-- The Shadow

Notes

  • The sinister hooded man on the cover is an illustration of the radio Shadow, and was painted from a publicity still of James LaCurto.[1] LaCurto is credit as being the first voice of The Shadow, when he was only a narrator for "Detective Story Hour." The same cover is used again on issue 9.
  • "The Silent Seven" and "The Faithful Fifty" are briefly mentioned in this story. They are the main villains next issue.
