The Weapon Of Night by Valerie Moolman

The last Nick Carter adventure written by Valerie Moolman was titled The Weapon of Night. Weapon of Night brings three foreign agents to America to help Night Carter battle a diabolical plot by Nick's arch enemy Mr Judas. The blackout of November 1965 set the stage, an eight state power outage. that led  The United States  to become the easiest target to render it totally helpless. Now was the time to revisit the rolling blackouts, the strange lights in the sky, and the dreaded stinging smog. Hakim Sadek, the Egyptian criminologist from Safari For Spies. Valentina Sichikova, Russian agent, from The 13th Spy. And Julie Baron, OCI agent, from Run Spy Run and  Fraulein Spy. These three agents help Nick as he goes to take down Judas and his band of "night crawlers"
