"Poison Death" (Jan 30, 1938)

Poison Death
"Crime does not pay...
The Shadow knows."

The Shadow knows and takes it very personal when a murderer is trying to poisoning the city water blackmailing the Mayor using the Shadow's name.
Our Lamont notices some peculiar type font in the blackmail letter left by the impostor and, with margo's help, will track the typewriter used for it and, subsequently, the killer.

The Shadow
The first rendezvous doesn't end good for The Shadow: will he be able to stop the killer before more innocent people die? You never know, when you deal with a "mad chemist"!!!

Enjoy the show (by clicking on the link below) and have a great (pulp) Sunday!
