The Shadow ~ 1933.09.17
shadow of the monster had first been seen by the guards stationed in the
prison yard. Then it appeared to a priest of Thoth within the palace. Panic
started when it loomed suddenly in the banquet hall. The commander of the
guard had seen it before reporting to Queen Nikotris. When the soldiers
rushed into the queen's chamber to defend her, they found the bed empty.
The monster flashed before them and disappeared -- the queen in its arms.
Meanwhile Tarzan was returning across the desert with
the young pharaoh. Down wind to his keen nostrils came a strange scent.
He looked and saw an odd shadow. But it was not until he and Tutamken returned
to the palace that they learned the queen had vanished and the monster
Ignoring a wild jumble of rescue plans, Tarzan set
off alone to the place where the strange scent had attracted his attention.
Searching where he had seen the shadow, he came upon a spoor of human footprints
in the sand.
