Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“…one of the great pulp writers, with colorful prose, lively action writing, exotic locales, fresh variations on standard characters and situations, and well-constructed plots.” —Ellery Queen

"A suspenseful murder mystery ... highly recommended."—Midwest Book Review

"...fast-paced high seas action yarn.  Contraband cargo (heroin) and the yacht owner’s beautiful daughter add spice to this taut pulp melodrama.”—Publishers Weekly

"Pure fun and you can’t beat the price—grab ’em!” —Library Journal

"For fans of golden-era pulp fiction, a winner."—Booklist

"Offering the reader a true ‘roller coaster’ ride of intrigue, suspense, action and adventure, Spy Killer is pulp fiction at its best." —Midwest Book Review

"The hero of this adventure, is anything but a tenderfoot. A hero of the classic adventure mold, ...tough and rugged, and has a strong sense of honor." —The Strand

"Exemplary pulp that can be read down the decades." —Mystery Scene

Meet the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
