Présentation de l'éditeur

All over the Midwest, cars and trucks were crashing–-stopped in their
tracks by an inexplicable force! Had some unseen power targeted
America’s automotive industry––or was something more sinister at stake?

Summoned to solve the mystery, Doc Savage and his intrepid men follow a trail of terror
that winds through the continental United States like a constricting serpent of
senseless destruction.

From the nation’s car capital to the Arctic Circle, the Man of Bronze races to stave off a
strangely familiar menace only to confront a completely unexpected foe––the enigmatic Baron in Black!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Du bon Doc Savage 11 novembre 2014
Par Pedro
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Les voitures américaines ne peuvent plus s'arrêter ou freinent d'elles-mêmes, évitant des accidents et en causant "volontairement" d'autres... Des champs de force surgis de nulle part emprisonnent gens et bêtes et les tuent en les étouffant... Le pays est paniqué et fait appel à l'Homme de Bronze qui va finir par comprendre que c'est à lui qu'on en veut... A force de jouer les justiciers, il a irrité gravement tout un pays avide de pouvoir...
Si vous aimez les aventures sortant des sentiers battus (ou du James Bond années '30, avec de jolies filles mais que l'on ne touche pas ;)), vous serez ravis. Même si le public français aimerait bien voir ce(s) roman(s) traduit(s) dans la langue de Molière.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Never a Dull Moment with Doc 26 mai 2014
Par J. Beard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In what’s become something of a rule, there are no bad Will Murray Doc Savage novels – just ones you like better than others. THE WAR MAKERS supports that rule; I liked it more than some, but not as much as others.

I’ve found that I’m reading Doc Savage novels these days more for the “little moments” and character bits more than for the plots themselves, not unlike how I approach Nero Wolfe tales. The story in THE WAR MAKERS is a solid one, a good one even, but its nice touches lift it above Murray’s other entries in the series as well as some of the original Doc sagas. Overall, the book’s a sequel of sorts to both one of Murray’s novels (I won’t spoil it for you) and somewhat to an original, but it works well enough on its own merits. I will be honest about the revelation of the villains behind all the chaos in the story; I wasn’t overly impressed with them the first time and THE WAR MAKERS doesn’t elevate them enough to spark further interest in the for me. They’re pretty standard black hats, though the female of the species here has more to offer than the males.

Nice touches? Oh yeah. One of the best is a fun cameo by a famous fictional personage, one that again I won’t spoil but that really made me smile. There are also some good insights into the Monk’s relationship with his pig, Habeas Corpus (and Ham weighs in on that, too), as well as some fascinating interactions between Doc and his cousin Pat, and another visit to Doc’s Fortress of Solitude (always a treat). To top it off, Murray offers up a unique opinion from the Man of Bronze on the deaths of evildoers at story’s end.

Again, THE WAR MAKERS is pure Doc Savage and not for the first time do I marvel at how smooth and seamless Murray presents these new adventures. They’re like old friends dropping in to tell you of their latest vacations around the globe – while that may sound pedestrian to some, with Doc Savage those trips are never dull. And Will Murray has never, ever produced a dull Doc Savage novel. I’m glad I read this one.

Book Review: Saturday, April 26, 2014
Doc Savage: The War Makers by Kenneth Robeson (Will Murray and Ryder Johnson)

Cars manufactured by the Huron Company of Detroit, Michigan have been involved in a number of “accidents” where the car apparently stops cold for no reason. Phineas Slade, the company CEO, has sent for Doc Savage to investigate.

Meanwhile, Monk and Ham, dispatched to Detroit by Doc Savage to investigate have their own encounter. Their car is headed for a head-on collision with Huron’s test driver, returning to Detroit with the latest model. But something stops both cars before they can touch.

Doc arrives to find that Slade has died, apparently of heart-failure, and that the temporary CEO, Theodore Buffington, is less worried about Doc investigating than the company’s bottom line. He insists on an internal investigation.

In Florida, Renny reports that wildlife has been suddenly dying, oddly enough in straight lines across the Everglades. The presence of some sort of force field stops anything in its path, even the lives of men and wildlife. Time and again Doc and his men are menaced by the invisible walls, and first Renny and Pat Savage, then Monk Mayfair are seemingly slain by the force field.

Doc and his companions have encountered this force before, when the events of The Motion Menace took place. But these force fields have been modified, and can run for hundreds of miles in any direction, leaving Death and Mayhem in their wake.

Doc had kept one of the field generators from The Motion Menace, locked up in a War Department storage facility. There, scientists toyed with it, trying to refine it as a weapon of war. The generator is still there, but the plans to build one have be stolen. The mystery is who did it, how did they know about the plans, and what do they want.

A message goes out to America, Canada, and Mexico that they have five days to surrender to The Black Baron or millions will die from the invisible walls. Thousands have already died, and Doc is well aware that they can carry out their threat.

In a chase from Manhattan to the Everglades, from Detroit to the Arctic Circle, Doc and company pursue the Black Baron. The final confrontation is a surprise no one would ever suspect.

I’m thinking this is the most dynamic story yet in Will Murray’s ongoing Wild Adventures of Doc Savage. Most definitely a five out of five tale!

Quoth the Raven…

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A New Kind of Doc Novel! 14 mai 2014
Par Evan Lewis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Will Murray has given us several fine posthumous collaborations with Doc Savage author Lester Dent, but The War Makers is something new. This one’s a collaboration with one of the other Kenneth Robesons, W. Ryerson Johnson.

Ryerson Johnson was a writer of many talents who worked in several genres and a variety of media before his death in 1995. During the last twenty years of his life, he and Will developed a relationship, and Will learned that Ryerson had a plot for a sequel (of sorts) to one of his three Doc Savage novels, THE MOTION MENACE.

Now, at last, that plot has been given life, and it’s another crackling good adventure with Doc and the gang. What begins as inexplicable behavior involving automobiles and their brakes soon escalates into a globe-spanning crisis that has planes falling out of the sky.

While most Doc Savage adventures claim very few lives, the death toll in THE WAR MAKERS climbs into the thousands. Doc’s up against some very bad dudes in this one, calling upon him to employ extreme measures. The story builds to a wild climax, and there’s plenty of fun along the way. As we’ve seen, Doc is a master of disguise, but this one finds him in what is probably the bizarre—and embarrassing—disguise of his long career.

Though THE WAR MAKERS is related to the events in the 1938 adventure THE MOTION MENACE, and also the 2012 story DEATH'S DARK DOMAIN, this novel stands alone. Having read the others (or reading the others afterward) would no doubt enhance your enjoyment of this book, but the events in THE WAR MAKERS are thrilling enough on their own.

I met Ryerson Johnson briefly myself in the late ‘90s, and had the privilege of listening to him expound on some of his pulp writing experiences. Sadly, I was not aware of his involvement in three Doc Savage adventures (the others were LAND OF ALWAYS-NIGHT and THE FANTASTIC ISLAND) or I would surely have got him talking about Doc and Dent. Still, it was great to see him—and the always entertaining Mr. Murray—back in action.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Action Never Slows Down 2 mai 2014
Par Virginia E. Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
“The Action Never Slows Down.”

The story starts out with Webster Neff test-driving a shiny green roadster from Huron Motor Company out of Detroit. He almost ran over a small child who had followed a bouncing ball into the street. However, his car stopped of its own accord, as if hitting an invisible wall. Webster learns that this is happening all over the US, and most accidents involve Huron vehicles. He is heading back to Detroit when again encounters the invisible wall; he is heading for a head-on collision with another vehicle when both cars slam into an unseen structure. The driver and passenger of the second automobile just happen to be Ham Brooks and Monk Mayfair; they, too, are headed for Detroit.

The story flies at break-neck speed, as Doc, Monk, Ham, Long Tom, and Pat race off to Florida, then D.C., and finally to the Canadian Arctic. Doc also visits his Fortress of Solitude. The episodic adventures never lack for action, as something is going on from beginning to end.

For Doc Savage fans, this is a sequel of sorts to several prior stories; one in particular is THE MOTION MENACE, from May 1938. I won’t divulge the others, as it might reveal some of the mystery. THE WAR MAKERS is based on an outline by Doc Savage ghostwriter, Ryerson “Johnny” Johnson. In fact, the use of cellophane cigar wrapping as one of the escape scenes in this adventure was also used in Johnny’s Phantom Detective yarn, THE SILENT DEATH, December 1936. THE WAR MAKERS thus contains writing by Lester Dent, Ryerson Johnson, and Will Murray.

The series has yet to falter under the hands of Will Murray and Altus Press, and I know readers and fans of Doc Savage can look forward to many more years of The All New Wild Adventures of Doc Savage, The Man of Bronze! Highly Recommended.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book but too expensive. 14 octobre 2014

Love the story. Can't go wrong with Doc Savage and Will Murray. Those both deserve 5 stars. The price is what sets this back. Way too much to spend even for Doc. Imagine he would have a thing or two to say about it.
