Wow! This was great. I love mystery stories and this one was great. Talk about a twist that you don't expect. What a great story. I felt as I was listening that I was right there in the story. No audio book has captivated me like this one! Really Really good!

What a great book. I couldn't put it down until the end. I especially liked the setting in China. This author is truly a master storyteller! His writings are so exciting and colorful! This is a good book for all ages.

An adventure story that sucked me in and kept me turning the pages far later than I should have into the night. L. Ron Hubbard never dissapoints! He promises great adventures and he delivers what he promises.

Bucko sailor Kurt Reid is accused of killing his captain, and placed in the brig. When a chance escape is presented, he takes it and jumps ship, figuring he can disappear in China. But things seem to conspire against him, and he meets a beautiful White Russian woman who asks him for help. From then on, he’s either threatened by the Chinese or Japanese conquerors for immediate death. Ordered by the Chinese to assassinate a Japanese spy, he must penetrate Japanese-controlled area, and avoid capture. Was his escape actually a set up to throw him into this mess, and if so, will he get out of it with his life? The author is a master storyteller, and weaves a thrilling spy adventure in the heart of China during the Japanese occupation. This is an exciting tale, and lots of fun. Highly recommended to the spy adventure lovers, or just reader who love a good tale.

I think we will have a very enjoyable trip, bucko mate.  These Galaxy Press editions of Stories from the Golden Age are pretty fantastic. Without them I never would have had a chance to read these stories which as far as I know can only be found in the pulp magazines in which they were originally published. They’ve been lovingly reprinted here, even including the cover art from the April 1936 issue of Five-Novels Monthly and a few illustration peppered throughout. I was surprised that this story is actually one story, not several as in Under the Diehard Brand which I had previously read, and it’s a good classic spy thriller too, featuring a unique bad guy and a different take on the femme fatale. I’m glad these stories are seeing the light of day again, Hubbard is a great writer and I’ve never been disappointed with any of his fiction which I have read. I dare you to buy and read only one of these!

We find the protagonist, Kurt Reid, reflecting over his past. He is at a nightclub watching a beautiful woman from across the way. He starts up a conversation. That is his first mistake. This could cost his life. Now he running around Japan trying to find someone to trust. I am not a big fan of pulp mystery but I figured this would be better then Hubbard’s Science Fiction. It was and it wasn’t. I found myself skimming a lot of description because it seemed like one page he was getting away from the girl or mob boss and the next chapter he wanted to find them. Every chapter was back and forth with such repetitiveness that I didn’t really care what happens to any of them.  Overall it is better than Hubbard’s sci fi but not better then the fantasy.

In this pulp fiction, L.Ron Hubbard immerses us in the mysterious tale of Kurt Reid, an American sailor, who has been accused of murder and larceny. Reed flees to China and Shanghai, the dark and mysterious city where he meets the exotic and glamorous White Russian Varinka Savischna. Startled and captivated by her beauty, Reid unwillingly begins a descent into the underworld of blackmail, espionage, and intrigue. Reid manages to save Varinka from death, finds himself captured by a Chinese death squad, and then complicates his life by being involved in an assassination plot of a Japanese spy. The intrigue escalates when events, facts, and characters are not what and who they appear to be. Hubbard successfully manages to trick and treat the reader with a fast paced adventurous journey of many twists and turns.
