Hosts of the Flaming Death      by Curtis Steele and Frederick C. Davis

Gold-the mineral which fosters war!-threatened to plunge America into a chaos of revolt, misery and death. In Washington, the fortified vaults of the nation's Treasury lay empty-stripped of wealth. A madman, obscured in mystery, his face concealed by a mask of the precious metal, had allied himself with powerful foreign magnates to deliver the United States into misery and bondage. Robbed of her riches, her plans for military security disrupted, her strategic stores destroyed and her armament factories wrecked, the most powerful nation in the world seemed inevitably doomed.

One man, Jimmy Christopher, ace of the Intelligence, had a feasible plan for wresting victory from the cunning clutches of the greedy syndicate... And that man, known to a few as Operator 5, under grave suspicion of treachery, spied upon and hampered by a stubborn superior, must sacrifice his father, his beloved, and his honor to save his native land from a cruel invader's debauchery and butchery...!
