Introduction by Will Murray

Major John Tattersall Lacy, once of the U.S. Marines—and now field leader of the Emergency Council for Crime Control with orders to meet the racketeers at their own game, to fight terror with terror and death with death…. Backed with tremendous resources, and the power of the six foremost men in the metropolis, Lacy and his ex-marine mates have broadcast their challenge— “Run, rat, or die!” And underworld warlords ready an answer….

From the author of The Shadow! Reprinted in its entirety for the first time, the complete saga of Lacy’s battle with the underworld army of the Scarlet Ace from the pages of Black Aces and All Detective. And it features an all-new introduction by Will Murray.
