The Shadow #102: King of the Black Market & Crime Caravan [November  2015; $14.95] reprints two wartime thrillers plus a classic Shadow script from the Golden Age of Radio. Both novels are by Walter B. Gibson (writing as Maxwell Grant). The radio script is uncredited.

King of the Black Market was first published in the October 1943 issue of The Shadow Magazine:

The King of the Black Market endangers the future of our nation at the time of its greatest peril.

Crime Caravan is from The Shadow Magazine for April 1944:

Coast-to-coast car hijackings sabotage the war effort until The Shadow shuts down the subversive Crime Caravan.

The front cover art is by Modest Stein. Back cover art is by Stein and George Rozen. Interior illustrations are by Paul Orban. And, as always, this volume also includes an informative historical essay by Will Murray.
