International Secret Agent Extraordinary
West of Jerusalem
A very unusual name. A very unusual man, in many ways. A man of royal blood, an aristocrat, if you like, from Austria. Handsome, too, as numerous women will eagerly admit. But quite capable of violence, as few remaining enemies will testify. So what does this dashing new hero do?
He is one of the CIA's most daring and effective special agents. Not a regular employee, mind you, but most assuredly a well-paid specialist. Malko gets the impossible missions, the dirty jobs, the secret operations that demand the coolness of a million-dollar caper, the finality of a commando hit.
In this first adventure we meet Malko as he learns that a top CIA official has leaped to his death from a Washington building. Why? The only clue is a grisly one, a little girl's finger. He has seven days to get the answers.
