The window shattered!
The boom of a rifle!
Everything went into a blur.
Something hit the Countess Krak!
She was down on the floor!
Hit man Torpedo Fiaccola has finally struck.
A killer so loathsome that he has been blacklisted by the Mafia, Torpedo has been hired by the alien, Soltan Gris, who has traveled from the Voltarian Confederacy to seal the fate of Earth.
Their target is the Countess Krak, the beautiful and deadly lover of Royal combat engineer Jettero Heller, whose mission to earth threatens a plot to overthrow the 110-planet empire. Gris must stop Heller and Krak at any cost.
DEATH QUEST sweeps violently through the otherwise quiet hills of Virginia to the open sea with a deadly pursuit that climaxes explosively in the waterways of Atlantic City.
Meanwhile, a bigamous marriage, a bubble gum-chewing teeny--bopper and a pig farm may sabotage every scheme in this sixth action-villed volume of L. Ron Hubbard's best-selling epic MISSION EARTH.
