Finally, the last of the Doc Savage pulps, as they were published by Street and Smith, anyway. After forty years, I finally finished all 181 original adventures!
This story was much better than it’s reputation, since it was dealing with something completely out of Doc’s normal depth: The actual (or supposed) supernatural. Doc and Monk manage to actually get into Hell itself, and get out again. Though naturally Doc has a much more plausible explanation for what happened to them. The build up to the climax is interesting, though Mr. Wail doesn’t make much of an antagonist – he’s much more annoying than anything else.
