James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#23 Rockets from Hell
by Emile C. Tepperman writing as Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
Those strange, impassioned orators preached peace and the brotherhood of man — as they tongue-lashed their eager, duped recruits to brutal deeds, bloody violence, and suicide... While dull-witted authorities ridiculed Jimmy Christopher — Operator #5 of the Secret Service — the Dragon Emperor ruthlessly conquered New England... When America seemed altogether doomed — when his loved ones had sacrificed themselves in vain — Operator #5 undertook one last, lone-handed counterattack — from which he could not hope to return alive!
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.
In 1934, with Hitler consolidating power in Germany and the Japanese Empire on the rise in Asia, young pulp publisher Harry Steeger decided that the American public was ready for a magazine chronicling the exploits of an undercover agent dedicated to defending the United States from foreign aggressors. With his editors, Steeger came up with a title, Secret Service Operator #5, and a cover depicting a masked terrorist fleeing an exploding White House. Over this loomed the resourceful hero, blazing away with a .45 automatic. His job: to defeat a new invasion of the United States—every month!
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 defense force. Proud and patriotic, expert marksman and swordsman, he is the best America has to offer in a time of severe trial.
Into this unprecedented crisis plunged Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit — and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
Rockets from Hell iread with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the February, 1936 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
