James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#41 The Day of the Damned
by Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
In the hot hills of Old Mexico, Operator #5 launched his great counter-espionage campaign against a plotting Asiatic horde which threatened to loose the entire barbarous guerrilla Southwest upon America! It was an attack that also combined modern Japanese mechanized warfare and dread tropical disease. As Operator #5 gathered his gallant border legions together to repel the most frightful invasion the world had ever seen, the very pages of history seemed turned back — when America was forced to make its last bloody stand on the hallowed ground of the Alamo!
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.
James Christopher did not technically belong to the U. S. Secret Service. He was a top agent for an America’s unnamed Intelligence Service. It was in his blood. His father, John Christopher, retired from the same agency years before. Answerable only to his superior, Z-7, and carrying a letter from the President of the United States identifying him as Operator #5, Jimmy Christopher played for keeps. He carried a rapier sewn into his belt, and in a golden skull hanging from his watch-chain was a reservoir of poison to be taken in the event of capture.
Even though he returned to his previous role as Intelligence agent after the Purple Invasion ended, the raw, rough hero that Jimmy Christopher had become did not soften. Emille Tepperman had tempered Jimmy in war and Wayne Rogers wielded him like a well made sword in later stories. This meant throwing increasingly horrific villains and obstacles in his way, but Operator #5 never wavered!
The Day of the Damned is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the September-October 1938 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
