The Filthy Five by Manning Lee Stokes

American intelligence had intercepted the message. The Red Chinese were paying one billion dollars to have the US President killed. The money was used to create a super weapon out of five convicted murderers. But the US could not act without proof. This was a mission for only one person, Nick Carter Killmaster. The nation waited in horror as Nick battled the insurmountable odds. Tortured and a young lady was killed as to avert failure. The assassination plot had to be stopped at all costs, the clock was running out fast. Three people stood in the way.  

Dona Lanzos: She was filled with hate for the men who killed her lover. She was more than wiling to use her body as a weapon or revenge.
Harry Crabtree: He hated mankind. He was a sadistic hired killer who got a sickening, terrible kick out of his job.
Malcolm Drake: He could not stop hating his crippled and useless body. Having life and death power over others help to ease the pain. He would torture, betray, and murder for power.
Ramon Ramirez: He was a skilled expert at his work. His work was killing, and Nick was to be his victim.

None of them hated the United States, but their personal hatred could only be satisfied if they helped ignite the holocaust which could destroy the US.
