Read full description of the books Spy Killer (Stories from the Golden Age):American Sailor Kurt Reid is a hothead and a hard case—a man who hits first and asks questions later. As scrappy and rough around the edges as Jimmy Cagney, it’s no wonder that when the ship’s captain turns up dead, it’s Reid who takes the rap.
Falsely accused and under the gun, Reid jumps ship and vanishes into Shanghai —only to get caught in a web of intrigue, betrayal, and murder. In a world where nothing is what it seems and everything is for sale, he’s soon out of his depth, drawn into a spy game in which the winner takes all . . . and the loser takes a knife to the back.
Will Reid live up to his reputation as the Spy Killer? He’ll have to learn the rules fast, because with players like sexy Russian agent Varinka Savischna in the hunt, the game is about to turn as seductive as it is sinister.
As a young man, Hubbard visited pre-Communist China three times, where his closest friend headed up British intelligence. In a land where communists, nationalists, war lords and foreign adventurers schemed for control, Hubbard gained a unique insight into the intelligence operations and spy-craft in the region—a knowledge that informs stories like Spy Killer.
“Vividly written, super-fast-paced.” —Ellery Queen
Read information about the authorWith 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 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.
In 1950, he wrote one of the bestselling books of all time, "Dianetics: The Modern Science Mental Health." His researches into the mind and spirit continued with the publication of additional titles on Dianetics and Scientology.
In celebration of his fiftieth anniversary as an author, he again returned to the forefront of popular literature with his monumental epics "Battlefield Earth" and the ten‑volume Mission Earth series. Together, these titles dominated international bestseller lists for more than 200 weeks, and still remain among the all‑time classic works of modern speculative fiction.
