Hell for Tomorrow
This is the most complex and detailed of the Secret Agent paperbacks. The plot concerns an attempt by a group of people to subvert the teenagers of Europe by giving them dope at incredibly low prices, getting them hooked on the dope, and then waiting until they get older and have the them vote the group into legal power. Murder of those who prove any form of problem at all is automatic.
The story is very well told, and one can easily visualize the events. John Drake is finally triumphant, but not after wall without some problems first- he is beaten severely, nearly shot to death, and then readied to be dumped overboard at sea and drowned.
The book is enjoyable reading.
