Ralph L. Angelo Jr.about this book: In 1937 a war is brewing, but in Riverburgh, NY forty miles north of Manhattan along the Hudson, it's not the war on the other side of the world that concerns the small cities citizens. It's the one in their very midst. Riverburgh is a terrible place, ruled by gangsters and corrupt politicians, those that live there fear for their very lives simply walking out their own doors.
For too long they prayed for a savior and now they have one, but is he sent from Heaven above or from the pits of hell itself?
The horrifying Grim Spectre has arrived in Riverburgh, but is he man, angel or demon? That is the question everyone asks. His Skull-like countenance instantly brings fear to the bravest of souls and his powerful shocking touch renders evil men insensate instantly. But he also wields deadly twin .45's with unerring accuracy in his war against the evil men of the beleaguered city.
Even with all his mighty and strange abilities will that be enough against the evil men who rule this city and drive its denizens to despair? Will it be enough against the crime lord named Zeus?
But Phylo Zeus is not the only problem in Riverburgh. The Mayor himself is a corrupt and evil man who would do anything behind the scenes to line his own pockets, and that includes murder.
Against the forces of the criminals and the police will The Grim Spectre be able to stand and lead the people of the Riverburgh back to safety? Will he be enough to survive the crucible he will find himself in?
