Bingham Harvard is the true identity of the mysterious midnight marauder known only as the Night Wind. Possessed of inhuman physical strength, he battles crooks and cops alike, motivated by the soul-crushing tragedy of being framed on a criminal charge he did not commit.
Alias the Night Wind introduces this proto-superhero who becomes as a law unto himself dedicated to the hot pursuit of swift justice. All while being hounded by the New York police force—and especially by clever undercover detective Kate Maxwell, whose special assignment is to bring in the notorious Night Wind.
Varick Vanardy was the pseudonym of prolific dime-novel producer Frederick Van Rensselaer Dey, the author of over one thousand Nick Carter stories. His Night Wind novels were written for The Cavalier magazine during the last years of Dey’s amazing writing career, as dime novels gave way to the new pulp magazine field pioneered by Argosy.
