1969 Award Edition

The theft of the deadly formula.                                                 
The school for Red spies.
The army of man eating rats.
The exotic house of pleasure
The diamond dagger caked with blood.
The hidden pellet of cyanide.

All of them played a vital part of Nick Carter's latest assignment. Prevent a top American scientist from defecting to China. Nick had only one lead, a beautiful women with a special fondness for sex spiced with savagery. The scene was Hong Kong. The mission was to find Professor Loo, whose scientific knowledge could give the Red Chinese protection against any nuclear attack. Nick battles strange enemies, the threatening Chin Ossa and the beautiful Sheila Kwan.
