The Web of the Golden Spider is a tale of mystery, intrigue and adventure that begins in the city, progresses to a mutinous open sea voyage, eventually leading to the remotest areas on the slopes of the Andes of South America. Wilson, our hero, finds himself in the midst of a battle between a deposed queen and revolutionists who have banded together in an effort to bring their country together as a republic. Wilson, although torn between helping mercenaries, freedom fighters and revolutionaries, is more concerned with the rescuing of the girl he has fallen in love with, but who has been snatched from him by a mysterious priest. That, and the finding of the famed treasure of El Dorado rumored to have been buried beneath Lake Guadiva. (Introduction by Roger Melin.)

Would have been a good story if it had not been for too much of the romantic drivel, Roger Melin does a very good job of the narration.

Roger does a fairly decent job with a pretty dreadful tale A shame as it could have been a rollicking adventure but the hero's romantic obsession with the idiotic heroine took all the fun out of it. What could have been a raiders of the lost ark became more of the famous five get a bit wet
