Doc Savage survives an attempt on his life by a sniper that shoots at him through his apartment window. The assassin is dressed as an ancient Mayan warrior but Doc Savage and his men give chase when they go after the shooter. Savage corners the shooter at a construction site and apprehends him. He attempts to hypnotize the killer in an effort to learn more information from him but he declares that he would never betray the Son of the Feathered Serpent and leaps to his death. Back at their headquarters, Savage finds a warning on the wall telling him to turn back from his quest lest the red death strike once again. Savage reiterates that will not rest until he finds the men who murdered his father. He vows to continue his fathers work in helping those in need. The final epilogue depicts another Mayan Warrior contacting a mysterious figure known as the Son of the Feathered Serpent. The warrior notifies the Feathered Serpent that the assassination attempt has failed. The Feathered figure orders the warrior to return to Hidalgo in anticipation of another confrontation with Doc Savage in that country.
