James Christopher, Operator #5 Audiobook
#7 Invasion of the Dark Legion
by Frederick C. Davis writing as Curtis Steele
Read by Milton Bagby
A powerful army of invasion — armed with the most ghastly modern weapons: bacteria, plagues, hideous diseases — lay carefully hidden within the borders of the United States, ready to strike at the heart of the nation, to kill, pillage, demolish... A foreign demagogue, mad-drunk with power, greed, and lust, planned the slaughter of a million helpless men and women, to sate his twisted, race-proud ambition. Belligerent nations watched and waited, sighting America helpless before them. One man — Operator #5 — read the crimson writing on the wall — and he alone was left to battle the frightful odds!
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.
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.
Invasion of the Dark Legion is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the October, 1934 issue of Operator #5 magazine.

Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.

When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer.  In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books.  Milton and his wife live in Nashville.

5 of 5 Tense Pulp Spy Action! May 28, 2022
Reviewer: Joseph Baneth Allen from Jacksonville, FL United States  
Just finished listening to "James Christopher - Operator #5 - #7 - Invasion of the Dark Legion" released by Radio Archives.
What I found so stunning about this latest adventure of America's Undercover Ace is how the fictional events parallel with attempts real-world modern-day attempts by ISIS to infiltrate the United States and establish military bases inside our borders.    What is also so striking about James Christopher's latest adventure is that how many people want to ignore the problem despite the evidence and not mention it by name for fear of invoking prejudice.  
Disturbing and thought-provoking about how willful blindness can almost destroy a nation.
Intense Pulp Action!
Milton Bagby brings James Christopher and his world to vivid life.
Highly Recommended!
Five Stars!
