Red Menace, The
WHO IS THE RED MENACE? Throughout the 1950s, this was the number one question from Moscow to Beijing and in every communist palace and malaria-ridden backwater in between. The mysterious masked figure was a shadow and a whisper. For the Kremlin and its fellow travelers, he was a damnable monkey wrench tossed into the gears of the not-so-glorious worldwide revolution. Wherever Reds schemed, the Menace was there to set things right. Then, 1960 came and the whisper grew silent.
When his deadliest enemy surfaces in Cuba, 12 years later, The Red Menace dusts off his stealth cloak to settle an old score — accompanied by his partner, inventor and physician Dr. Thaddeus Wainwright. Jim Mullaney, co-author with Warren Murphy of Remo Williams: The Destroyer, delivers a tour de force of action-adventure and political satire.
