Description:

Jim Blake, Deputy Commissioner, leaves the comfort of his office and hits the street in search of the ultimate prey. His target, Connie Binhart, conman, counterfeiter and bank thief. The chase, breathtaking, extremely fast and spans four continents. When they finally meet face to face, each wears an air of careless listlessness, yet each watches the others' every move, every moment. It was not hate that existed between them. It was something more dormant, more innate. It was something that had grown ineradicable; as fixed as the relationship between the hound and the hare. Set at the turn of the century, The Shadow is Arthur Stringer's most intriguing crime thriller. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur

Author Image

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.

He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.

Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).

Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
