Abstract:

In this series of noir detective tales of intrigue, bigotry and incest, millionaire Wesley Dodds takes on the costumed persona of the Sandman in 1930s New York donning a gas mask, fedora, business suit and cape to fight the forces of evil. In this eighth volume, in the early days of World War II, the Sandman finds himself drawn into international intrigue when a brash young Polish pilot petitions him to finance the resistance efforts overseas. But a string of murders seems to follow this pilot, whom the Sandman will come to know as Blackhawk. Then, the Sandman examines the seedy world of pulp publishing in 1930's New York. With the market for dime novels dwindling, publishers are willing to try anything - even crime. Wesley Dodds sets out to learn why one publisher has become a target for sabotage and murder.
