Hidden away in a sanctum in the heart of New York City, a being in black ponders beneath a blue light and chuckles slyly to himself as he peruses reports of his secret agents.

For The Shadow knows!

Before crime's plans have been put into being by some master mind of the underworld, word has come to The Shadow from his agents in far-flung corners of the world - and The Shadow lays plans to thwart the hordes of evil.

Earphones on the wall lead to Burbank, contact man - and through him go the master crime-fighter's instructions to his aids. Orders for Harry Vincent to report on the scene of possible crime, to lay the groundwork for The Shadow's approach; to Hawkeye and Cliff Marsland, in their underworld guise, the paths they are to follow; to Clyde Burke, reporter for the Classic, the necessary information to be gotten only through newspaper channels; to Moe Shrevnitz, taxi driver of first rank, word of transporting the master-fighter to his field of battle; to Rutledge Mann, hiding behind the "front" of an investment broker, the word to be ready with his invaluable aid; to Jericho, giant African, the stand-by message to aid, if necessary, with his terrific strength.

These, then, are The Shadow's agents.

The Shadow himself is, in reality, Kent Allard, internationally famous aviator - but to no one, save his two Xinca Indian servitors, has this knowledge been given. For in his contacts with society, The Shadow takes on the guise of Lamont Cranston, big-game hunter and explorer. There is a real Lamont Cranston, but he spends most of his time in far-flung corners of the world; and it is with his permission that The Shadow adopts his identity.

Thus does The Shadow go forth to battle crime - to vanquish his foe of the underworld and make justice triumph. Trailing his actions is his weird, chilling laugh - the signal for the law to attack; the omen that makes crooks cringe in fear.

No matter what the crime, no matter how diabolical the plan, justice will triumph. Crime does not pay! The Shadow knows!
