Riding with the night, he leaves the Mark of Zorro on his cruel deeds. Already the governor has placed a price on Zorro's head, dispatching a cutthroat army led by the ruthless Captain Rocha to hunt him down.

There are all kinds of crazy, but there's only one Yukon Madness. And Royal Mountie Tommy McKenna-a role made for Canadian-born Glenn Ford-has seen first-hand the terror that follows in its wake . . . his partner murdered and fed to a pack of wolves.
But that's only a taste of the horrors to come. Bent on revenge, McKenna sets out to find the madman himself-a monster who goes by the name Itauk. He quickly finds, however, that there's only one way to get to the beast-through the man's raven-haired beauty of a girlfriend, Raja.
But whose side is Raja on? Can McKenna win her over? Or will he too end up dead meat? The bait has been cast, the scent has been taken, and the trap has been set. The only question is, who is the predator and who is the prey?
Hubbard never wrote a word, conceived a character, or described a setting without first finding out all he could about the people and places that drove his stories. He wrote: "I began to search for research on the theory that if I could get a glimmering of anything lying beyond a certain horizon, I could go deep enough to find an excellent story. . . . I began to read exhaustively. . . . I wanted information and nothing else." His exhaustive research-and search for the excellent story comes through in this book three times over.
Also includes the adventures The Cossack, which takes place in revolutionary Russia and explores the high price one man pays for refusing to kiss a Duchess, and The Small Boss of Nunaloha, the exotic story of a man who may be short, but who stands tall when it comes to defending his turf-an island in the Pacific.
From the show called "the best of the best of radio's golden age" come these six suspenseful episodes of Johnny Dollar's far-flung private investigations, starring Bob Bailey in thirty quarter-hour episodes.
First heard on network radio in 1948, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar chronicled the adventures of freelance insurance investigator Johnny Dollar, "the man with the action-packed expense account." For fifteen years, it was one of the most popular detective shows on the air, lasting until the final days of network radio drama in 1962.
Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive calling on Johnny Dollar to investigate an unusual claim. His investigations usually required Dollar to travel to distant locales and often involved murder. The stories were recounted in flashback, as Dollar listed each line item from his expense account: "Item one, $3.75 cab fare to the airport."
Over the years, many actors portrayed Johnny Dollar, but in 1955, Bob Bailey, took over as the series was switching to a new format in fifteen-minute installments Monday throught Friday. While other radio shows were waning in the mid 1950s, Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was at its peak.
The episodes and their dates of broadcast are:
"The Medium Well Done Matter" (14 - 18 May 1956)
"The Tears of Night Matter" (21 - 25 May 1956)
"The Reasonable Doubt Matter" (28 May - 1 Jun 1956)
"The Indestructible Mike Matter" (4 - 8 Jun 1956)
"The Laughing Matter" (11 - 15 Jun 1956)
"The Pearling Matter" (18 - 22 Jun 1956)

Death, accidental and early, has always been Abby Walters's preoccupation. Now thirty-three and eager to settle down with her commitment-shy boyfriend, a recurring dream from her past returns: a paralyzing nightmare of being buried alive, the taste of dirt in her mouth cloying and real. But this time the dream reveals a name from her family's past. Looking for answers, Abby returns home to small-town Minnesota for the first time in fourteen years, where she reconnects with her high school crush, now a police detective on the trail of a violent criminal. When Abby tries on her grandmother's mesmerizing diamond ring, a ring she always dreamed would be hers, she discovers a cryptic note long hidden beneath the box's velvet lining. What secret was her grandmother hiding? And could this be the key to what's haunting Abby? As she begins to uncover the traces of a love triangle gone shockingly wrong nearly seventy years before, we, too, see that the layers of our lives may echo a past we’ve never known.
