G-8 and His Battle Aces #83 Audiobook
Death Rides the Midnight Patrol
by Robert J. Hogan
Read by Nick Santa Maria
They called G-8 the Flying Spy. History never recorded his exploits—and for good reason! No one would ever believe World War I was that wild!
Deep in the earth, away from the light of day, the murder of millions is planned by a fiend who lives for his love of murder! Herr Doktor Krueger is his name and Death is his partner in this historic crime. Here, in the black skies of midnight, lighted by the guns and the flares of the searching Gods of Death, G-8 flies to the greatest showdown of his career! What was the secret of Herr Doktor Krueger? G-8 and his Battle Aces write the answer in flaming skies!
Every good hero must have villains that just won’t die, and G-8 was no exception. Steel Mask was an enemy that brought his own iron version of evil to bear on the Battle Aces more than once, hiding his mutilated face with an obviously steel mask. He held G-8 responsible for his affliction, due to America’s Master Spy bringing down a blimp in literal flames. Other villainous types returned as well, including the Raven, Chu Lung, and Grun the Primeval.
None, however, came back as often or with the determined ferocity of G-8’s primary nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. Returning again and again over the entire 110 adventures after appearing in the very first story, Krueger truly proved to be a mad genius that could have won the war for his side, were it not for G-8 and His Battle Aces. From deadly diseases to weapons of mass destruction, Krueger’s machinations were the most vile and depraved featured in the series. As evil as G-8 was righteous, Krueger attempted multiple times to win the war for the Kaiser and rid himself of America’s Master Spy. He succeeded at neither.
Nick Santa Maria brings G-8, Nippy and Bull to thrilling life in their desperate struggle to defeat a deadly nemesis unlike anything they have ever before encountered in Death Rides the Midnight Patrol. Originally published in the August, 1940 issue of G-8 and His Battle Aces magazine.
Nick DeGregorio composed the music for the G-8 and His Battle Aces series of audiobooks.
