The Gray Phantom

Herman Landon

Book Overview: 

A woman is apparently murdered in a New York auditorium under very suspicious circumstances one evening during a performance.

She also heard an ominous laughter which would haunt her for a long time. Was the Gray Phantom involved, or could he assist with the investigation that Helen was to become involved with?
