Will Murray's Pulp Classics #81
James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#6 Master of Broken Men - September 1934
by Frederick C. Davis writing as Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby. Liner Notes by Will Murray
From out of the pages of Operator #5 magazine steps a dramatic hero who pits himself against threats to national security from all origins. Whether it’s a subversive internal threat, or a full-scale invasion from an enemy land, James Christopher stood ready and resolute to defeat it.
Aided by a small group of trusted assistants, ranging from his twin sister Nan to scrappy street urchin Tim Donovan, Jimmy Christopher was a one-man army. Proud and patriotic, expert marksman and swordsman, he is the best America has to offer during times of severe trial.
Originally written by master pulpsmith Frederick C. Davis, writing as Curtis Steele, the Operator #5 series was a clear forerunner of the spy and espionage genre, which exploded in the 1960s when President John F. Kennedy happened to remark that he enjoyed reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels.
From the pages of Operator #5 magazine, September, 1934, comes Master of Broken Men!
A woman screamed once... and a thousand guests in that great Washington ballroom stood frozen with terror as the blood-mad horde of naked savages turned the place into a reeking charnel house. But that was only the beginning... America’s greatest industrial and political leaders become, over-night, gibbering maniacs, while a fear-frenzied, despairing nation revolts against a crumbling, dying government! How can Operator #5, alone, hope to prevail against this dread Master of Broken Men?
They called this new threat to America’s freedom, the Man Breaker. Was he an agent of a foreign power, or a traitor burrowing through the national bowels like a termite of silent but relentless destruction? Did it matter when the country’s most prominent leaders fell before his cruel tortures like spineless rag dolls? As savage riots spring up across the benighted land, Jimmy Christopher, Operator #5, takes up his pistol and rapier and undertakes a desperate manhunt for the mastermind before the nation plunges into a new Dark Age of Doom.
Into this uncontrollable political crisis plunges Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit—and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
Master of Broken Men is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby.
