Gold - a nation's strength for war and peace - had been completely looted from the Treasury in Washington by an octopus-like international syndicate. A mysterious madman, more cunning even than death, captained the ruthless spy crew that was sucking the lifeblood from our land. The proudest nation in the world seemed helpless - doomed! One man alone, Operator 5 of American Intelligence, grasped the full import of that crafty plunder plan. And he - known to only his best friends as Jimmy Christopher - was spied upon by his brothers of the service, suspected of treason by a short-sighted superior, and hampered by senseless bureaucracy.
In the hour of America's greatest peril, Operator 5 must sacrifice father, friends, honor, and his beloved in order to wrest victory from what promises national dishonor and ignominious defeat!
