Synopsis for The Crimson Avenger: "Hop Yin"

On the waterfront at midnight, Chinatown gang boss Sung Wah is murdered by a dagger-wielding trio of killers. A Globe Leader reporter named Mac gets the story, and learns that the new Chinatown gang boss plans on taking over the entire city. Publisher Lee Travis takes great interest in this story.

That night in Chinatown, the Crimson Avenger skulks in an alleyway, staking out a building that he suspects is the gang's hang-out. He climbs a fire-escape and eavesdrops on the new boss, Hop Yin's meeting with his henchmen, in which he promises them riches and demands their obedience. A lookout spots the Crimson, sneaks up, head-konks him unconscious with a club, and drags him into the new boss' lecture. Hop Yin orders the Avenger to be thrown into a dungeon, and the lookout marches him away at gunpoint. Nobody remembers to frisk him for weapons. Once they're out of sight of the others, the Crimson fakes a stumble, rebounds, disarms the guard and punches him out, then follows up with a dose of sleeping gas. Then by accident, while looking for a hiding place, the Crimson Avenger unlatches a secret passageway, and steps into it. A flight of stairs takes him right back up to the meeting room, and a curtained alcove overlooking it, from which he does more eavesdropping. Hip Yin's big plan is to blow up police headquarters with a time-bomb, then make some simultaneous bank robberies. He shows them the surprisingly small bomb, and its two-minute fuse. The Crimson Avenger shoots great deal of sleeping gas into the room, and all of the conspirators fall down snoring, but amidst all that, the firing pin on the bomb gets pulled. Crimson, being still awake, runs away; his adversaries aren't so lucky.
