Review: The Red Spider

The Red Spider
The Red Spider by Kenneth Robeson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The final original Doc Savage pulp novel by Lester Dent (a.k.a. Kenneth Robeson) is also one of the more well-written adventures of the character. Doc and his team infiltrate Soviet Russia to get information from one of Stalin’s right-hand men, and then have to get out again. The tale wasn’t released as one of the original pulp magazine, having to wait about thirty years for publication. It was definitely worth the wait and is an excellent coda to a classic series of one of the original “super-heroes” of American culture.
