The Shadow - James Luceno Can the Shadow, aka playboy Lamont Cranston, stop Shiwan Khan, last decendant of Ghengis Khan, from destroying New York with an atomic bomb?

Way back in the bygone age of the early 90's, going to the movie theater was a twice a year occurance. So instead of being lured to the movie theater by the previews on TV, I had to be satisfied with movie adaptations of middling quality. That being said, I didn't hate this book.

The Shadow movie was cheesy fun and the novellization is more of the same. I'm not going to talk about the plot very much. The summary pretty much says it all. One thing that wasn't in the movie that showed up in this book was that The Shadow wasn't actually Lamont Cranston. He was actually Kent Allard, a man who usurped Cranston's identity.

Not a bad book but I'm glad I'm able to go to the movies whenever I please in my adulthood.
