The Mind Killers by Jon Messman

They were all-American heroes, scientifically programmed to assassinate. Nick Carter's orders were to stop them before they reached the President of the United States.

Tandem Edition
They were walking, thinking human time-bombs, unique killers who would have no trace after the job was done. They had been carefully chosen for the assignment. Each a super patriot, above suspicion in espionage. Now they were ordered to Washington to assassinate the President. Nick Carter's mission was to stop them. If he could destroy the mechanism used to brainwash the men. If he could unmask the leader behind the plan. If he could outrace programmed killers hurtling towards explosion.

Charter Edition
  • A Chinese laundry ticket that mysteriously turned up in a North Vietnamese POW camp.

  • a seemingly harmless cup of tea.
These were the clues. They hid the identity of the man who held mankind's most destructive weapons in his hand. Nick Carter had only 72 hours to find him.
