The Shadow is tormented by visions of New York City plagued by living fire—fire in the shape of a Chinese dragon—fire with the potential to spread hungrily to the world.  But what do these visions mean?  The Shadow will peel back the layers of mystery, leading to a confrontation that could very well shake the pillars of Heaven.
