Operator #5: Blood Reign of the Dictator
Operator #5, a secret service ace, appeared in more than 48 novels in a classic pulp magazine bearing his name. From April 1934 to November 1939, Jimmy Christopher fought villains from inside the United States and invaders from without. With World War II looming on the horizon, the Operator #5 books became a reflection of the times -- none more so than when a fascist dictator appears to take over the U.S. government! One of the bloodiest pulps ever produced, full of thrill-a-minute action and peril, Blood Reign of the Dictator is a classic entry in the series.
