Chaos, confusion, and disintegration fall with swift, breathtaking disaster upon America! Already terrorized by a tottering, unstable world, American men and women are swept into a mad stampede when the great leaders of the nation are spirited away one by one to return as broken men, useless and inept. Here Jimmy Christopher - Operator #5 - sets forth on his most thrilling and dangerous exploit while the great brains of America surrender to madness and despair, as a leaderless people seethe in revolt against a government that is crumbling before their eyes. How can Operator #5 singlehandedly hope to prevail against that dread master of broken men?
A woman screamed once...and 1,000 guests in that great Washington ballroom stood frozen with terror as the blood-mad horde of naked savages turned the place into a reeking charnel house. But that was only the beginning.... America's greatest industrial and political leaders become, overnight, gibbering maniacs while a fear-frenzied, despairing nation revolts against a crumbling, dying government! How can Operator #5, alone, hope to prevail against this dread master of broken men?
They called this new threat to America's freedom the "man breaker". Is he an agent of a foreign power or a traitor burrowing through the national bowels like a termite of silent but relentless destruction? Does it matter when the country's most prominent leaders fall before his cruel tortures like spineless rag dolls? As savage riots spring up across the benighted land, Jimmy Christopher, Operator #5, takes up his pistol and rapier and undertakes a desperate manhunt for the mastermind before the nation plunges into a new dark age of doom.
Into this uncontrollable political crisis plunges Jimmy Christopher - only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit and stands prepared to perish to protect his country.
From the pages of Operator #5 magazine, September 1934, comes "Master of Broken Men" read by Milton Bagby.
