Tape A Top-Secret Red Summit Meeting
Then Try To Get Out Alive!

Secret Mission #19


Listen and Die!
After a string of hair-raising mission, Phil Sherman was due for an easy one. And this was it. Wire up a sympathetic Yugoslavian cabinet minister and get two top Communists talking on tape. It looked simple, until the secret police killed the minister and pinned the rap on Phil, fleeing across the Dalmatian countryside. At least he had the tapes. 

Or did he?

Somebody had pulled a switch on him, but who? Was it Lokarda. the two-bit extortionist in Belgrade? Or Milica, the voluptuous, smokey-eyed guerrilla leader?  Or, worst of all, Rankovich, the dreaded commander of the secret police? Suddenly it was clear. one of them would get out of the country. Phil Sherman or the tape? But not both!
