Doc Savage, the legendary superman scientist known as the Man of Bronze, captivated adventure readers from 1933 to 1949 in his own pulp magazine, and again in the 1960s through the 80s in a million-selling Bantam Books paperback series.
In 1990, Will Murray, heir apparent to Doc Savage originator Lester Dent, revived the famous Street & Smith superhero in a new series of exploits based on Dent's unfinished works.
Writing as Kenneth Robeson, Murray brought Doc Savage back in The Jade Ogre, an epic adventure of Oriental magic and mystery.
Who-or what- is Quon? All of Asia knows him as a devil in human form, a twisted, armless monster with a face of imperial jade. Long dead, Quon has returned from the grave to spread his fatal Jade Fever and subjugate mankind. From San Francisco's Chinatown, across the vast Pacific to the spidery jungle ruins of Cambodia, Doc Savage and his resourceful crew battle a seemingly-unbeatable foe whose deadly reach knows no barriers, and whose evil ambitions know no bounds.

I am glad that Audile decided to sale DOC SAVAGE audiobooks! I have been reading these books since the 1960s and own about 130+ in paperback. If you are just getting introduced to Doc Savage and his crew you will enjoy his adventures. Each story is a stand-alone adventure. I have read many of the books over and over. If you like superheroes and action-adventure book these books are for you.
"Very good story"
This is the longest of all the Doc Savage stories but it is a very good one. I like the twists and turns but enjoyed the detailed explanation at the end by Doc Savage the most.
"Doc's greatest hits!"
This extended Doc Savage novel is like a compilation of some of his greatest pulp-era adventures. It is well-written, well-paced, and features a super narration by Michael McConnohie. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to all Doc fans.
