Invasion of the Crimson Death Cult      by Curtis Steele and Frederick C. Davis

Mysterious happenings-cloudbursts in the arid desert, churches and skyscrapers horribly destroyed, priests and pastors oddly maddened, Intelligence agents craftily slaughtered-all these heralded the attack on America by the Son of Kasma-spokesman for a vicious, Oriental cult. The populace flocked to the new religion in self-defense. Our country seemed helplessly doomed... And Operator 5, charged with treason by a power-drunk authority; his best friend's honor, and his own, held forfeit; his beloved Diane captive to the yellow Messiah, must battle alone against a more cunning invader than ever menaced America before.

Kasma, baleful divinity from the wastes of Asia, had laid his blighting curse upon America. All who opposed him came to ghastly ends: amnesia, madness and screaming, agonizing death -- for the cult of Kasma enforced its dread dictate with a new, deadly weapon, unseen, unheard, which razed its mightiest buildings, which lay wide regions barren -- without man or beast!

One man, Jimmy Christopher -- known in the Secret Service as Operator 5 -- understood the grim purpose behind that crafty plan. And Operator 5, hampered by a superior's short-sightedness, beset on every side with peril and treachery, takes the greatest gamble in his career to keep an army of religious zealots from delivering America into the bondage of an Asiatic Moloch!
