James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#47 Corpse Cavalry of the Yellow Vulture
by Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
Company after company, Operator #5 hurled his gallant volunteers against the Asiatic hordes in a desperate attempt to draw off the enemy siege of the east. For that ruthless tyrant, called the Yellow Vulture, had a stranglehold on America’s eastern seaboard, and silent factories and idle shipping testified to the doom of a once great country. Yet when the sons of Liberty at last arose to throw off the conqueror’s yoke, they were met by the most terrible calamity in history — an incredible Japanese weapon which plunged America in complete midnight darkness and butchered her patriots in a fiend-made night of hell!
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. 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.
Working for Agent Z-7, head of an unnamed branch of U. S. Intelligence in the decade before the C. I. A. was ever envisioned, Operator #5 was assisted by newspaper reporter Diane Elliott, a two-fisted street kid named Tim Donovan, as well as his twin sister, Nan Christopher. Jimmy’s father, a retired operative himself, often backed him up with sound advice on the fine art of counter-espionage.
With his sturdy band of volunteer patriots, Operator #5 makes a final effort to draw off the Asiatic hordes from their attack upon the eastern seaboard — and put an end to the strange new Japanese war-weapon which has shrouded America in midnight darkness!
Corpse Cavalry of the Yellow Vulture is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the September-October 1939 issue of Operator #5 magazine.
