50 Years Ago This Month (September)

50 Years Ago This Month

September 1965

The Eyes Of The Tiger 
by Manning Lee Stokes

Nick Carter is given the task of recovering some Nazi loot. This loot is from a Japanese temple that was presented to Adolph Hitler as a token of Axis partnership. As the story goes, the loot lay in a a Swiss bank account protected by a kill on sight order by two hand picked elite SS guards.

Five desperate people schemed to steal it:
  1. Hermann Goering, Reichsmarschall.
  2. Max Rader, Hitler's personal aide.
  3. Shikoku Hondo, Colonel of Japanese Intelligence.
  4. Baroness Elspeth von Stadt, Voluptuous double agent.
  5. Nick Carter, AXE agent.

Chamber of Horrors
The little room, buried in the living rock of the old schloss, reeked of evil and pain. Rader and his men did not wear black hoods and masks, but the effect was the same. They were torturers. The young baroness' feet were already anchored to the rack. She was screaming with terror. The curse of the gold statue with the ruby eyes was about to claim another victim......
