The Shadow #23

After traveling around the world for answers to the severed finger sent to him, The Shadow returns to New York to find the old acquaintance whose plan to use the ring to impersonate his former colleague and create a new power base in the United States has backfired.

Presented almost entirely from the White Tiger's point of view, The Shadow #23 fills in the gaps to the man's story including taking the gem from the jungles of Guatamala, the series of events that lead him to losing one of his fingers while attempting to assume the role of the Girasol, and his attempts to crawl from poverty once more.

The end of the issue wraps up the arc as The Shadow finally tracks down the the White Tiger (which he really didn't need to leave New York to do), and provides his own brutal justice for the man's crimes. For fans.
