The Shadow by Patterson & Sitts

The Shadow is a collection of serialized dramas, originally in 1930s pulp novels and later in a variety of media. …

The introductory line from the radio adaptation of The Shadow – “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!” – spoken by actor Frank Readick, has earned a place in the American idiom.

A good idea. The Shadow is reawakened in 2087 New York City dystopia.

Only two people know that 1930s society man Lamont Cranston has a secret identity as the Shadow, a crusader for justice. One is his greatest love, Margo Lane, and the other is fiercest enemy, Shiwan Khan. When Khan ambushes the couple, they must risk everything for the slimmest chance of survival . . . in the future.
     
A century and a half later, Lamont awakens in a world both unknown and disturbingly familiar. The first person he meets is Maddy Gomes, a teenager with her own mysterious secrets, including a knowledge of the legend of the Shadow. …

Still, I’m quite lukewarm on this book as I am with a lot of Patterson.

Can’t particularly recommend it.
