- Nothing says “Saigon” like a white lady in lacy lingerie on a candy-striped couch. I always say.
- Nick Carter is the Ellery Queen of spy “chillers.” Is he the author? The character? Both? Neither? The Smug Floating Head of Nick Carter says “Don’t overthink it, baby. Just chill on my couch and I’ll bring you a drink. [looks at her hand] OK, five drinks.”
- Spy vs. Spy > this.
- If you’re a big fan of torture / rape, then … “Saigon,” I guess. Jeez.
- Nick Carter went on to make millions in the exercise equipment market, though sales didn’t really take off until he changed “Killmaster” to “Thighmaster.”
The blade flicked from the narrow haft without a whisper. Nick crouched. Sighted. And threw. The head turned slightly. Beautiful!
