Originally published in Shadow Magazine 5/13/33. From the back cover:

What was the meaning of the sudden, mysterious deaths that were striking ordinary citizens in New York’s public places? No doubt they were the first manifestations of a diabolical scheme toward ill-gotten wealth and criminal power. But they were more than that. They were the work of a monstrous fiend who loved death for its own grisly sake – Thade, The Death Giver!

In a thousand cunning ways, this fearsome genius dealt death – to those who would thwart his designs, to his blackmail victims, even to his own tools and henchmen. No man could come in contact with Thade and survive – until there appeared, gigantic automatics at the ready, a strange stealthy figure with a dark cloak and slouch hat, piercing luminous eyes, and an uncanny laugh that foretold impending triumph over evil… The Shadow!
