Okay, one more TNT novel, the last one I have (though I need to track down more). In the fifth in Doug Masters' paperback series (I missed #4, THE DEVIL'S CLAW), KILLER ANGEL, Tony Nicholas Twin is vacationing in Greece, where he receives a message that October, his retarded 16-year-old daughter, is ill at the Twins' Ireland home. His charter plane is diverted to Albania, where he is arrested for spying (it's a long story) and ends up a prisoner of Giallica Kadar, the young wife of the impotent president of Albania who entertains her husband by having sex with men who resemble Joseph Stalin while he watches from behind one-way glass. Giallica is organizing her insidious version of the Olympics, which she calls the Hercules Games. To train her athletes, she has enlisted Wolfgang Amadeus, a madman who floats above the ground on his metal legs which contain a radio, tape recorder and even a laser that fires from his left kneecap.
Of course, Twin becomes one of Giallica's athletes and must compete in her diabolical events, like outracing a tank before a hail of machine gun bullets mows him down or swimming in a pit of carbonic acid while a scuba-suited killer with a flamethrower filled with napalm stalks him. TNT is also forced to make love to a dozen women one at a time while Giallica watches; if he fails to bring one to orgasm, Giallica will kill her.
Yep, it's another incredibly screwed-up TNT novel, though I suspect someone else besides the original "Doug Masters" wrote this one. It's not unusual for quickie paperback series to be written by different authors under a house name, and KILLER ANGEL's style is different than the others I've written. TNT's thoughts are revealed more often, and Arnold Benedict is written to be almost likable, more like comic relief than the sick, paranoid, murderous pervert we've seen in previous books.
I believe there are at least seven TNT novels, and I don't see any way I can avoid reading the rest of them. I'm hooked on the crazy.
