The Death Merchant: The continuing exploits of Richard Camellion, master of death, destruction, and disguise.  He gets the dirty jobs, the impossible missions, the operations that cannot be handled by the FBI, CIA, or any other legal or extra-legal force.  He is a man without a face, without a single identifying characteristic...except that he succeeds by being a merchant of death.

Death Merchant 01
The Death Merchant
Even the Mafia Masters he served feared the Death Merchant!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger
 
Richard Camellion was not born to a life of crime and killing.  The fateful circumstances of his existence led him to become a master of murder, of cunning, of disguise - of all the brutal knowledge needed to become undisputed top gun of the strongest, vastest crime network in the history of the world.

Now, fresh from his latest hit, the Death Merchant has been summoned to a top-echelon conference at a little restaurant near Chicago's Loop.

Come inside and meet the Family...


Death Merchant 02
Operation Overkill
Overkill
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger It is an incredible plan.  Spawned by the demented leaders of the Knights of Vigilance, Operation Overkill includes the assassination of the President of the United States, the Vice President and other White House leaders.  It is to be a swift, violent and bloody overthrow of the government, with the power shifting to a group of fanatical right wingers headed by the billionaire industrialist, Cyrus Fletcher.

And nearly every facet of the plot is locked in place.  Top military figures are involved, operatives within the CIA and FBI have those agencies rigged - and any other needs have been bought or bribed by Fletcher and his Knights of Vigilance.

Only one man seems to be in the way, Richard Camellion, the master of death, destruction and disguise...also known as the Death Merchant!

Can he derail Fletcher's mad and murderous plot before it's too late?!


Death Merchant 03
The Psychotron Plot
The Psychotron
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger It is a fiendish Russian invention, specially designed to drive a man insane by blasting his brainwaves and interfering with his body's electro-magnetic fields.

In testing the Psychotron the Russians destroy the minds of 209 villagers of Bel Sida, a small Bedouin settlement in the Sinai.

The Israelis are very concerned, realizing that the weapon might very easily be aimed at them next.  Strategically, by using the Psychotron for telepathic hypnosis, the Russians and Egyptians could annihilate Israel.

It's a mission for Richard Camellion, master of disguise, deception and destruction - The Death Merchant!


Death Merchant 04
Chinese Conspiracy
Richard Camellion
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger For years he'd had a working arrangement with death.  He is the master of disguise, deception and destruction - also known as the Death Merchant.

Now it's a race against time - with a deadline of murder - because the head of Project Toro, the government's program to put a space shuttle into operation before the end of the year, has been kidnapped from Cape Kennedy.  The CIA believes that the Chinese are responsible.  So do the Russians.  Their top espionage group, the GRU, is working with the Americans to find Dr. Goddard and the secrets of his brilliant mind holds before it is too late for Western civilization.

The man who planned the ruthless project is ex-Nazi General Hans Hugo Kronsleiter, who runs a "private" spy group for Red China.  Can he be prevented from taking Goddard out of the US to Canada and then to China?

A job for the Death Merchant!


Death Merchant 05
Satan Strike
The Satan Virus...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A virus a thousand times more deadly than smallpox, a virus able to kill millions of people within a few hours.

It was developed by Jean Pierre Duvessalines - the sadistic dictator of a Caribbean empire.   He has a cunning plan to enable him to rule the entire northern hemisphere.  He's going to trap Russia and the United States, using germ warfare as the bait, and then watch them destroy each other.  Next...

When the United States and Russia find out, they send out an SOS for an antidote.  The GRU sends Colonel Boris Yushkik to head their section; the CIA, naturally, wants to find the best man in the country to defeat the diabolical scheme.  And fast!  But who?  Who else but the master of death and deception, the expert at extermination - The Death Merchant!


Death Merchant 06
The Albanian Connection
The Spider Web...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The Death Merchant becomes entangled in a deadly web, when he intercepts a Spider agent in London, kills him, then takes his place.  The master of disguise and deception must use all of his skill to defeat Spider's plan to assemble nuclear rockets at Falcon I - a base hidden deep inside a cave in the treacherous North Albanian Alps.  He must act quickly, because the nazis who have formed Spider are ready - ready to demand German reunification through the United Nations organization, and ready to destroy Albania with nuclear weapons if their demands are not met!

The men at Falcon I are experts in death by modern technology; they learned their trade at Peenemunde making rockets for Hitler's conquest of the free world.  Now they're trying again - with only Richard Camellion between them and hellish success.

He is only one man - alone against a fiendish plot - but he is the incredible Death Merchant!

The web grows tighter by the minute - the Spider vs. the Death Merchant.


Death Merchant 07
The Castro File
A Battle for Power...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger ...between the Russians and the Cubans must be averted, and only the Death Merchant can prevent it.  Even the Central Intelligence Agency believes that our hope for a free Western Hemisphere rests in Richard Camellion's hands.  He must keep Fidel Castro from being killed and replaced with an exact double, a Russian agent who intends to deliver Cuba into the Kremlin's hands.

The Russians want to use Cuba as the main base for all revolutionary activity in South America, and Castro refuses to go along with them.  He's making peace overtures to the United States and doesn't want to be held responsible for the violent upheavals due in the south.

The plans were made.  Richard Camellion would enter Cuba under a Canadian passport, posing as a left-wing Castro supporter.  Then somehow, he would try to contact those who could help him save Castro.

But if Camellion was caught by the Cuban Army Intelligence - Castro's own men - who knew nothing of the scheme, he would be as dead as if he were discovered by the GRU.


Death Merchant 08
Billionaire Mission
Cleveland Winston Silvestter...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger ...is not just an ordinary nut.  He is a business genius, a billionaire whose interests include international oil and numerous manufacturing enterprises.  He is also a fervent spiritualist who has tried for years to make contact with Lucifer, whom he is convinced is the real God of this world and the next.

Cleveland Winston Silvestter appoints himself Lucifer's ambassador, with the full title of Ambassador of Emperor Lucifuge Rofocale.  His mission is to destroy the world - eliminate civilization!  No one will be spared but the ambassador and his followers, the 200 members of New Dawn, who will be safe in an underground city built on a giant ranch in Australia.  He plans to annihilate mankind by triggering an all-out nuclear war.  Then Lucifer can take over.

First, the Israeli premier is killed by a bomb.  The Egyptians are blamed, of course.  Next an attempt is made on the life of the French premier.  This time the Israelis are suspected.  Fidel Castro is almost assassinated.  Who else but the Americans would do such a thing?  Then the CIA learns of a plot to kill the President of the United States, and the GRU discovers a plot to kill their premier!

The two superpowers confer.  They've been watching Silvestter for a long time but have been unable to stop him.  Proof is needed, and there is only one man capable of smashing the fiendish scheme before it's too late - another ambassador of annihilation, a man who, like Satan himself, is a master of disguise and deception.

The Death Merchant and the Devil are hell-bent on a collision course!


Death Merchant 09
The Laser War
A Secret Superweapon
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger While fighting their most recent war, the Israelis captured an Egyptian intelligence agent.  From him they learned that during World War II the Nazis had developed a laser weapon with capabilities far in advance of even the most modern designs.  The Israelis want that weapon - all the nations of the world do!

Known as die brandwunde, a test model is still in existence.  Where?  The Egyptian doesn't know.  All he knows is what a Nazi war criminal told him: that the laser death ray machine is buried in the sands somewhere in northeast Libya.  Do the Russians know about the device?  No, but the Libyan intelligence service does!  This means that the Libyan dictator and his boys are also searching for die brandwunde.

Locating the superweapon is a job too big for the Israelis to handle by themselves, and they turn to Uncle Sam.  The CIA.  The Central Intelligence Agency calls in Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.

He is to find die brandwunde, dig it up, and bring it out.  Fast.


Death Merchant 10
The Mainline Plot
The "H" Bomb!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger But this time "H" means heroin, and a super-potent strain has been developed exclusively for the US market.  The North Korean Communists, who have refined this sinister, one-shot-and-you're-hooked drug, intend to enslave a generation of Americans.

Wreck the youth of a nation and you wreck its future.  Simple.  The plan is diabolical, seemingly foolproof.

Can the Death Merchant concoct a special strategy to counteract this fiendish plot?  Can one man - however brave and ingenious - hope to win against the combined might of the mafia and the North Korean Reds?

Richard Camellion has an idea...and as the master of death and deception, he specializes in the impossible.


Death Merchant 11
Manhattan Wipeout
I Want Camellion - I want him dead!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A contract is out on the Death Merchant.  Salvatore Giordanno, Capomafia of the most powerful New York family, knows it's a kill-or-be-killed situation - his entire organization is at stake.

Richard Camellion is directing a bloody drama to ring the final curtain down on organized crime - forever.  He'll do it any way he can.  He's been given the green light by Washington.  No combination of soldato hit men can stop him.  He's on the warpath...and ten times more dangerous to the four families than an army of red-taped federal cops.

It's a mop-up and a wipeout scene in Manhattan!


Death Merchant 12
The KGB Frame
Flash! Camellion turns Double Agent
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The evidence is indisputable: a tape, in his own voice, in his own words, which incontrovertibly matches his voice print - and damns him eternally as an agent for the Russians.

To make things even more convincing, the KGB is prepared to sacrifice a valuable illegal agent and nine other Soviet agents to guarantee that Camellion go to his death as a traitor in the eyes of his countrymen.

The hunted target of both his colleagues and his enemies, the Death Merchant becomes the object of the most intense and desperate manhunt in the history of international espionage.  Only one outrageous, longshot risk can save him this time.


Death Merchant 13
The Mato Grosso Horror
Green Hell
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Deep in the steaming jungle of Brazil, a secret enclave of ex-Nazi's worked feverishly to perfect the ultimate biological warfare weapon.  And somehow they had reduced the Carajas Indians, a tribe of savage headhunters, into servitude.

By sheer chance, Hamosad - Israeli Intelligence - in hot pursuit of German war criminals, stumbled upon this bizarre collection of misfits.  Recognizing their limitations, they turned to the CIA, which called upon the services of the Death Merchant, the only man capable of aborting the dream of future "Reich Glory"!

Leading a small "anthropological" expedition into the sweltering Mato Grosso, Richard Camellion knew that his chances of survival diminished the deeper he penetrated the jungle.  But even his wildest imaginings could not prepare him for the blood-draining horrors that awaited him.


Death Merchant 14
Vengeance of the Golden Hawk
V.G.H.
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The strange initials stand for Vengeance of the Golden Hawk, an Arab terrorist organization dedicated to the furtherance of the Palestinian cause...and the elimination of Israel.

Assassination, skyjacking, letterbombing, and every possible terrorist activity has been used by the VGH.  The Israelis have been repeatedly hit by the fanatical campaign, and have been unable to penetrate the terrorist camp.

Now the VGH is assembling a rocket with an atomic warhead, and plans to unleash the murderous weapon on Tel Aviv.  The rocket will kill every person in the city, and flatten the area into a pile of radioactive rubble.  It is only a question of time.

And Richard Camellion, The Death Merchant, makes his very first move...into a Jordanian prison!  His CIA contact in Amman is murdered.  It is to be Camellion's wildest and most incredible race against time and disaster.

Can one man possibly succeed where nations and armies have failed?


Death Merchant 15
The Iron Swastika Plot
Die Spinne
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Die Spinne.  German for The Spider.  A deadly network of fanatic ex-Nazis.  Ever since the final defeat of Germany in 1945, Spider agents have been at work building their secret organization.  A vital part of their mission has been to secure the treasures and monies accumulated by Hitler's hierarchy, and hidden in all corners of the world.

The Spider is now attempting to snatch a huge treasure in gold - $2 billion worth - from the Atlantic waters off Argentina.  Only four men are known to have the exact location.  One is dead.  A second has disappeared.

Enter the Death Merchant, Richard Camellion, courtesy CIA.

A meeting in Vienna with one of the two survivors.  Maria-Theresian Plaza.  A beautiful park, as only the Austrians could design it.  Gay, green, and full of sunshine and life.  Until the Death Merchant and six Spider agents turn it into a bullet-spattered slaughter ground.

Only one man would walk away...with a last clue.

Verbelen
Forckenbeckstrasse, 1607
Pforzheim

Would the Spider be waiting?


Death Merchant 16
Invasion of the Colnes
The Death Merchant vs. Five Death Merchants!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger When Richard Camellion, The Death Merchant, is sent to an African country by the CIA to investigate cloning he is captured!  The mad scientist, Dr. Lewellyn, has perfected the art of cloning - making carbon copies of people by using their body cells.  He and Garbu, the dictator, who are creating an army of clones to invade wealthy South Africa, come up with a novel idea.

Clone the Death Merchant!  Duplicate the one-man army, Richard Camellion, a thousand times.

In a stunning finale, Camellion must do battle against five of his exact replicas.  The whole of Africa may be changed by the outcome.


Death Merchant 17
The Zemlya Expidition
Operation Infiltration
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger When the Russians build an experimental undersea city in the Arctic Ocean the Americans want to know what it's about - for the nation that can control the sea today can control the world tomorrow!

The only man capable of such a mission is the Death Merchant.  He must infiltrate Zemlya One (guarded by the infamous KGB security boss Colonel Vershemsky), get the information, and escape - taking with him the Russian-born CIA contact living on Z-1.

One man against a Russian city!  No small wonder that the Death Merchant considers this his most dangerous mission ever.


Death Merchant 18
Nightmare in Algeria
Blood Sons of Allah
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Leaders of the Black Avengers, an Afro-American liberation terrorist group, are granted political asylum in Algeria and form an alliance with the Blood Sons of Allah, a vicious Palestinian terrorist organization.  Together they plot to kill the US Secretary of State, the President of the US, and the President of Egypt.

Could this be the start of World War III?

There are two informants among the Sons of Allah - one feeding information to the Soviets, the other to the CIA.  Will the informants'  leak prevent this catastrophe?

Enter the Death Merchant, Richard Camellion, courtesy of the CIA.  His assignment: kill the leaders of the Black Avengers and the fanatical directors of the Blood Sons of Allah.


Death Merchant 19
Armageddon, USA!
Do-It-Yourself A-Bombs
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger That's what "The Sons and Daughters of the Stars and Stripes" have conceived and made.  A Bicentennial fete of terrorism plotted by extreme right wingers.  Three A-Bombs have been planted in three American cities.  Which cities?  That's what the FBI and the CIA need to know.

Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant, is the one man capable of doing the job: locating the bombs, preventing their detonation, and then eliminating the eliminators.  Camellion is the USA's secret superbomb!


Death Merchant 20
Hell in Hindu Land
Nightmare in India
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Incredible espionage reports have been pouring into the CIA.  It seems that there is a mysterious, secret room in a Buddhist monastery in India - a room that contains secrets "from the stars".  Rumors include mention of ancient astronauts, and of a "bio-plasm" force that can defy gravity!  Other intelligence tells of a "psychotronic generator" that can harness the energy of the human mind.

The Pentagon is concerned because Soviet KGB boss, Major Kondrashev has discovered the location.  The CIA cannot afford to ignore this report, no matter how bizarre it sounds.  If only partly true, the potential value of these ideas to a world power like Russia could be disastrous to the USA...possibly the free world.

Another mission for Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant!

Join him as he battles his old nemesis, the KGB, and the deadly Indian tribesmen of Raj-mahal to locate the secret room - and prevent the vital information from becoming an enemy weapon.


Death Merchant 21
The Pole Star Secret
Weather or Not
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger According to Colonel Vladimir Kondrashev (a CIA agent inside the KGB), the Soviets have set up a secret base at the North Pole to study weather control.  If the Russians could alter climactic patterns - to turn the Middle West, America's breadbasket, into a desert - they could create financial and then political havoc.

Kondrashev has also reported rumors of a "lost land" somewhere close to the North Pole!

The man for the job?  The Death Merchant.  His mission?  Stop the Russian weather experiments!  Find the "lost land"!  But do it by not starting World War III!


Death Merchant 22
The Kondrashev Chase
The Chase is On
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The KGB has finally gotten wise to the fact that a double agent is in its midst, and Colonel Vladimir Kondrashev - CIA code name "Steel Ball" - is that man.  So far he has been very clever, escaping from the Soviet Union before being arrested and taking with him the names of all the control agents in Europe, South America, and the United States.

The CIA is certain that "Steel Ball" is somewhere in Eastern Europe.  But where?  They know he will stay clear of American and British embassies because they are being watched by the KGB, as well as the intelligence services of other East European communist nations.  The next step?  The CIA sends the Death Merchant, Richard Camellion, to find this double defector and somehow get him into the US.

Join the Death Merchant as he battles through Europe - from East Germany to Czechoslovakia, then back to Communist Germany.  He's a one man army against the Russian KGB, the East German SSD, and the Czech SNB.  It's a deadly job, but he's done it before!


Death Merchant 23
The Budapest Action
Stop the World
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The United States Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has received information that Hungarian scientists are working on a new weapon, NK-hk-4, a powerful hallucinogen gas that, if dispersed within a city, could neutralize the entire population for as long as two weeks.  The advantage of this super-weapon is that it would leave all buildings, hardware, and commercial facilities intact.

The DIA has only been able to get two leads: the hallucinogen gas has almost been perfected, and the project is under the directorship of Imre Maleter, a top Hungarian biochemist.

Do the Russians know what we know?  Will the KGB get to NK-hk-4 before we do?

Join Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant, as he fights his way through Budapest, determined to get to Karolyi Castle in the Bakony Mountains, where the gas is being developed.  He's racing against the Russians, in search of the formula that could immobilize the world!


Death Merchant 24
The Kronos Plot
The Canal Destroyers
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Accion Cubana (Cuban Action), a CIA-backed anti-Castro organization, has learned that Fidel Castro and his military intelligence apparatus, the DGI, have hatched up a deadly scheme involving the Panama Canal.

The CIA investigates and finds out that the Cuban code name for the operation is Kronos.  The plot: Castro is planning to blow up two ocean-going vessels in the main locks and destroy the Panama Canal with tons of high explosives.  They are worried because Cuban Intelligence, as a result of 'de-Castroization" is under the firm control of the Soviet Union.  This means that the Kronos plot has the stamp of approval of the KGB!

Join Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant, as he fights his way through Panama, battling not only the Cuban secret police, but agents of the Panamanian National Department of Investigation as well.  It's a plot spawned in hell!  The Death Merchant knows what he must do - smash the Kronos plot before the canal is destroyed!


Death Merchant 25
The Enigma Project
Perilous Ark
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Noah's Ark, of biblical legend, has been reported to be located on the top of fourteen thousand foot Mt. Ararat, the towering mountain in Turkey that overlooks the Soviet Union.  A biblical group wants to investigate and the CIA thinks that's just fine!

Enter the Death Merchant.  His job - go as a member of the Grundy Bible Institute and bring back photographs of the entire Soviet border sector with details of any secret installations.  There's just one complication: The wily Turks have allowed a Russian expedition to climb at the same time.

In the race up Ararat to the Ark the Death Merchant matches wits and brawn against the entire Soviet team making the forty-day flood of history seem dry!


Death Merchant 26
The Mexican Hit
The Mexican Connection
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Mexico has a new, sure-fire import: drugs.  The marijuana that once came into the US by the kilo now travels by the ton.  Ninety percent of the heroin arriving in America is the distinctive brown variety known as Mexican Mud.

The Mexican government once ignored this.  But the various revolutionary groups have now merged under the banner of the 23rd of September Communist League and are armed with American weapons.  Their financing?  Simple.  They sell drugs to Americans in return for weapons.  Automatic weapons.

The Federales appeal to Washington and there is only one man for the job: Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.  An easy mission - merely halting the entire drug traffic across the border and preventing a bloody and ruthless revolution.


Death Merchant 27
The Surinam Affair
Jungle Jeopardy
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The National Security Agency (NSA) has a new, very powerful spy satellite - WINK-EYE-1.  Its one purpose is to keep track of Soviet and Chinese missile sites, but something goes wrong and WINK-EYE-1 begins flying over the United States photographing United States missile sites!

When the satellite goes off course and crashes in the jungle of Surinam, a tiny country in northern South America, there's only one man NSA will send to find it - Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.

His mission - to destroy WINK-EYE-1, the film, and anyone who gets in his way, before the Soviets get to it, and to save the United States from nuclear destruction!


Death Merchant 28
Nipponese Nightmare
Green is for Go...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The United Red Army, a terrorist organization operating in Japan, has dedicated itself to a world-wide revolutionary war in which the "exploited" masses of Asia, Africa, and Latin America will rise in concerted rebellion against their own governments and US "imperialism".

In order to plunge the world into turmoil and set nation against nation, the URA plans to assassinate key international figures and blow up their embassies.  Then the Kompei, the Japanese intelligence service, learns that the URA also plans to assassinate the President of the Philippines and the Emperor of Japan, and blame the murders on the CIA!

Only one man can stop the insidious world revolution - Richard Camellion.  Ordered to smash the Red Army completely, the Death Merchant dips into his bag of deadly tricks to save the United States - and the world - from the ultimate disaster!


Death Merchant 29
Fatal Formula
The Germ of an Idea that Means Death!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The CIA has learned  that the Russians have developed a deadly influenza strain discovered by a certain Dr. L. in a secret laboratory in the coastal city of Yalta, on the Black sea.  Mad Commie scientists are working night and day to "marry" the new strain to the more common, more easily spreadable viruses, giving them the power of life and death over the entire world.  While the CIA knows all this, they are helpless to halt the invasion of germs.

The question: Who is the one man capable of stopping this hideous epidemic before it even gets started?  The answer: Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.  His job: Find the secret laboratory somewhere in the Crimea, destroy the formula - and make sure no one remains alive who can recreate it in the future!


Death Merchant 30
The Shambhala Strike
Legend of Death
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger For centuries there have been rumors of an extensive complex of caverns existing under Tibet, Bhutan, Mongolia, and Kurdistan.  And no one, so rumor has it, is allowed to enter these secret caves except worshippers of evil.  Rumor?  Perhaps.  But there are those who will swear to the existence of a fabulous subterranean metropolis called Shambhala, ruled by Rigden-Jyo-Po, "King of the World", and the untold wealth it contains.

The CIA knows that the Red Chinese and the Russians are trying to find it.  Obviously the CIA must acknowledge these rumors, and get there first.  But without openly involving the US, how can they get an expedition started?

There's only one man who can handle anything of that magnitude with the necessary subtlety - Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.  And so, along with Vallie West, an old CIA pro, Camellion begins one of the most eerie - and deadly - adventures of his career.


Death Merchant 31
Operation Thunderbolt
Operation: Disaster
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The US has just learned that an American planeload of vacationers has gone down off the coast of North Korea, en route to South Korea.  Among the survivors picked up by the North Koreans are Dr. Douglas Hausheer and his wife.  What the North Koreans don't know - yet - is that Dr. Hausheer is a top secret scientist working on Operation Thunderbolt, an ultrasonic bomb.

Question: What will happen when the North Koreans find out what a valuable catch they have fished up from the sea?  Answer: If the information stored in Dr. Hausheer's head falls into the wrong hands, it might mean disaster to the US - possibly to the rest of the democratic world.

The CIA knows that only one man can nip the impending holocaust in the bud: Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.  His job: Get the Hausheers out of North Korea before either one is forced to talk - or kill them both!


Death Merchant 32
Deadly Manhunt
Richard Camellion - The Ultimate Target...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Someone is after the Death Merchant!  Somehow, his cover has been blown; his disguises penetrated; his multiple identities exposed.  He has become the hunted instead of the hunter.  Richard Camellion is fighting for his life!

His enemies are legion, but so far no one has been able to tie the feared and hated "Death Merchant" to private citizen Richard Camellion.  Except that someone did.  And that someone seems to be in three different places at once, to have a hundred eyes, and be as well trained in firearms, Oriental martial arts, poisons and electronics as Camellion himself...someone who thinks like the Death Merchant, and is always one step ahead of him - or behind him...

But the Death Merchant's true identity is known only to a carefully selected few.  And that means that someone Camellion knows has betrayed him.


Death Merchant 33
Alaska Conspiracy
Oil for the Lamps of Death...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A group of giant European companies have formed "Council Six", a highly secret organization that is plotting to smash OPEC, the Arab oil cartel.  Europe imports most of her oil and is, in short, at the mercy of the Arabs.  Their plan: sabotage the Alaskan pipeline and make it look like the work of OPEC - in the hope that the US will take drastic military action against them, thereby destroying OPEC.  The US knows how devastating disruption of the Alaskan oil flow would be.  But even more devastating would be a war with the Arab states.

Only one man is crafty enough to infiltrate the deadly "Council Six" and prevent an international slaughter.  That man is Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant - man of a thousand faces, whose trigger finger is as quick as his computer mind.  But "Council Six" is diabolically clever - and this time Camellion may have met his match...


Death Merchant 34
Operation Mind-Murder
World war II is Over - or is it?...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger In the remote frozen wastes of the North Pole region, just north of Siberia, lies Wrangel Island - remote, perhaps; but close enough to the United States to cause the CIA and other intelligence agencies some concern.  For, they learn through "spy" satellites, the island is peopled by Soviet scientists under the direction of the KGB.  There, the Russians are still holding World War II prisoners long ago listed as killed in action - but actually the subjects of inhuman medical and scientific experiments.

When the Russians begin building an enormous complex that appears to be not only a radar station but a sophisticated weather experimental base, this can only mean trouble for the free world.

In a worried washington, the decision is made: Wrangel Island must be destroyed.  But how?  And by whom?  The choice is unanimous.  The Death Merchant - Richard Camellion - is elected to plan and execute the vital mission.


Death Merchant 35
Massacre in Rome
Death Merchant - or Ghost Hunter?
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Normally, the CIA pays little attention to mystics and other exponents of the psychic arts.  But Maria Gondozatti, a simple woman living in Rome, has been making predictions about world events that have turned out to be frighteningly accurate.  Where, and how, does she get her information?  The CIA Office of Science & Technology refuses to believe the answer lies in the supernatural, and plan to have one of their "front" organizations investigate her.  But before their parapsychologists can get to Rome, the Red Brigade revolutionaries kidnap her.

One man knows where the Red Brigade is hiding her, but he's a triple agent selling information to the highest bidder.  The CIA has got to find Gondozatti first, and strike out against the Red Brigade at the same time.

Richard Camellion is the only man for the job.  The Death Merchant's orders: Find Maria Gondozatti, and settle the Red Brigade's hash once and for all - at any cost!


Death Merchant 36
The Cosmic Reality Kill
Gnostics and Guns...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The Cosmic Reality Church, a powerful religious cult that has overrun the United States, is brainwashing impressionable kids and teaching them not only to blindly obey their madman-leader, the self-ordained Reverend Hannibal Frimm, but to believe that all who do not support their church are the enemy.  And according to "His Oneness and Onlyness", enemies of the church must die.  Toward that end the "Frimmies", literally brainwashed by North Korean methods of mind-murder, are being secretly trained in karate, sophisticated firearms, and explosives.

The most outspoken enemy of the cult is Everett Padden, a dedicated deprogrammer of misguided children and Camellion's old friend.  When Padden is brutally murdered, the Death Merchant, with the help of a young, off-duty CIA agent, infiltrates the cult.  His job: smash and destroy the dangerous, maniacal Reverend Frimm and save the children from the evil of the self-serving, self-styled savior.


Death Merchant 37
The Bermuda Triangle Action
Aliens or Russians?
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Ever since 1945, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) has been interested in the Bermuda Triangle.  That's when five TBM Avenger torpedo bombers vanished off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, Florida - without a trace.  Then there was the Martin flying boat that went in search of the five planes.  It disappeared, too.

But despite the wild rumors about the Bermuda Triangle, the ONI didn't take any action...until the Kingfisher, a US diesel submarine, was reported missing - 310 nautical miles south of Puerto Rico.  And then came the CIA report that the Cubans and the Russians were building a secret underwater base south of Jamaica...

That's when the ONI summoned Richard Camellion to execute the most dangerous underwater mission ever assigned to a single man.  His job is to locate and destroy the Russo-Cuban underwater complex - and then the ONI will see whether the strange disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle come to an end...


Death Merchant 38
The Burning Blue Death
Trial by Fire
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger FACT: There is a weird phenomenon known to medical science as Spontaneous Human Combustion.  Called SHC, it is a conflagration of the human body that occurs instantly, often generating such fantastic heat that the entire body of the victim is reduced to a few pounds of ashes within minutes.

When US Senator James Franklin Wilder is burned to death; when several months later a scientist goes up in smoke, with no explanation; when a key government employee in West Germany bursts into flames, and there is no official comment; when in eight months, twelve people, all connected to high government posts spontaneously combust, the Scientific Research Division of the CIA becomes concerned.

Richard Camellion, The Death Merchant, is sent in to find out the who, what, and why of the Spontaneous Human Combustion deaths...and he begins by placing a series of advertisements in newspapers around the world - an act that sets off a resounding chain reaction with deadly international implications.

The Fourth Reich
The Brotherhood
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The Brotherhood: A dangerous spy and terrorist network, headquartered in an ancient castle in Scotland, financed by English and Scottish Nazi sympathizers.  Its neo-Nazi tentacles have spread throughout Europe, the United States, and South America and have even penetrated the East German and Polish governments.

The British Military Intelligence, the Federal Intelligence Service of West Germany, and the CIA have not been able to stop the Brotherhood's insidious plotting.

By the time Camellion is called in, it's almost too late and the plot too complex.  Camellion's mission is to simply stop World War III!  The atom bomb that will trigger a confrontation between the Arabs and the Jews is already enroute to its destination.  And the Cuban assassin - programmed to kill the President of the United States - has already entered the country...

Blueprint Invisibility
Lost in Time
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger In October 1943, the US Navy engaged in an experiment in electronic camouflage.  Navy scientists reportedly made the USS Eldridge disappear from the Philadelphia Naval Yard and within seconds reappear at the Navy base in Norfolk, Virginia.

What happened to the men aboard that ship and how this incredible feat was activated was a well guarded secret...until the entire file turned up missing.

Camellion's mission is to find out if the KGB has stolen one of Big Uncle's most important secrets.  But their perfect spy - governed by mind control - is diabolically clever, and this time Camellion may have met his match.


Death Merchant 41
Shamrock Smash
The Blarney Stone
It's The Kiss Of Death
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A worried CIA and a frustrated SIS, the British Secret Intelligence Service, are up in arms - and it's no wonder.  The rate someone's smuggling weapons into Northern Ireland has tripled - the supply is endless, and the IRA won't stop its merciless bombing and killing.

So they call on the best undercover man around, Richard Camellion, master of disguise.

Operating as a photojournalist, the Death Merchant infiltrates Ulster's arms smuggling rackets, hangs out in Irish pubs and finds out who's been slipping what to whom.  The answers come fast and furious - it's the KGB, it's the PLO, it's even underground operations in the US.  And their agents are on to Camellion's cover.  His number's up.  It's just a matter of who gets to him first - and how he'll die.


Death Merchant 42
High Command Murder
Hitler's Gold
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A retired French postal worker reveals that he helped a group of Americans and Frenchmen bury 100 boxes of Hitler's gold in Brittany at the close of World War II.  He's murdered before he can tell where, and the CIA calls in Camellion.

It seems that some of the Americans were on General Patton's staff.  Did Patton know about the gold heist, and was he killed before he could blow the whistle?

Working with deep-cover CIA agents and closely in league with French terrorist groups on the trail of the gold, it's up to Camellion to double-cross the terrorists - and get the gold before they get him.  But destruction and violence bombard his every move, and the master of disguise could soon wear the mask of death.


Death Merchant 43
The Devil's Trashcan
Nazi Vengeance
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger FACT: The Devil's Trashcan is the nickname of Lake Toplitz in the Dead Mountains of Austria.  At the end of World War II, eyewitnesses observed the SS dumping metal cases and boxes into the lake - boxes filled with Nazi secrets that today could expose world leaders as former Nazi collaborators.  People have been searching for those secrets ever since.  Most of the people are dead.

When the CIA and the BND - West German Intelligence - attempt to lure ODESSA, the worldwide organization of ex-SS men, into the open, they use the Death Merchant as a decoy.

Richard Camellion is placed in charge of the "Cologne Historical Society" expedition that will probe the depths of the deadly lake with modern underwater devices.  Camellion knows ODESSA will sink to any level to protect the Nazi secrets buried in the mud.  Will Camellion be able to swim out alive or end up as just another dead duck?


Death Merchant 44
Island of the Damned
Laboratory of Death
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger On a far-off, half-forgotten Hawaiian island, Russian scientists are hard at work, secretly perfecting an ingenious but lethal device: the BioMemory Scanner.  With this devastating mechanism at their command, the Soviets plan to monitor not only the mental activity of everyone alive today, but also of anyone who has ever existed!

With the Russians a hairsbreadth away from universal domination, even Camellion, the most efficient crime demolisher of all time, has to think twice.  Can he infiltrate and destroy a scientific stronghold of professionals who are determined to let absolutely nothing stop them from taking over the world?

The Rim of Fire Conspiracy
Death Erupts!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A furtive investigation by US scientists reveals a string of nuclear devices buried deep below the ocean floor - coincidentally right in line with the area most susceptible to both earthquakes and volcanoes: The Rim of Fire!

Only the Russians could have implemented such a terrifying strategy capable of destroying the entire United States - and more!  The CIA is called in, then NASA.  Finally, as the tension stretches into panic, Camellion is offered the job.

Can one man alone outwit the most far-reaching Soviet death game yet?  No one dares even think about the alternative...


Death Merchant 46
Blood Bath
Survival of the Fittest...
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger It looks like a straightforward - if bloody - black terrorist rebellion: Southwest Africa demanding freedom from its neighbor, South Africa.  Sam Nujoma is the intelligent, well-educated leader of Southwest Africa, seemingly so devoted to his cause that no one would guess he's a direct link to the KGB, that in fact the Soviet Union is entirely responsible for the revolution.

The CIA has it figured out, though, and they want the Russians' pet project snuffed.  Kill Nujoma and Markevski, his KGB contact, and the scheme will collapse.  This has so far proved mysteriously impossible.

Desperate, the CIA calls in the Death Merchant.  His orders: kill two men no one has been able even to get close to.  Yet.


Death Merchant 47
Operation Skyhook
Out of Orbit
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger American Intelligence suddenly comes in with a shocking report that the Soviets have launched a new satellite, Voktok-1, a test version of a satellite armed with lasers far superior to anything the US has ever produced.

With lightning speed, US scientists develop a system to override the Russian frequency and gain control over Voktok-1, planning to bring the sucker down over the ocean.

The problem becomes a crisis when Voktok-1 lands in Indonesia, an island that shows every intention of keeping and using its lucky find.

The race is on.  Either the KGB nabs the satellite first, or Richard Camellion - the slickest, cruelest saboteur in the business - beats them to it.  Or the Indonesians pull a fast one, and surprise everybody...

The Psionics War
Mind Games
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A psionics expert, Dr. Wayne Davis, has put the final touches on a devastating piece of equipment capable of revolutionizing US military strategy through the use of mind control and destruction.  The CIA has had its eye on Davis for years, and eagerly invites him to New York to reveal his research.  As an extra precaution, the Death Merchant is asked to meet Davis at the airport.

Neither man makes it to the rendezvous.  They vanish into the hands of the KGB.  The Soviets know a good thing when they see one, and they're all set to import Davis and his instrument of terror into their own country.  And Richard Camellion - the only man who could do anything about it is out of commission...

Night of the Peacock
Arab Terror
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger Communist activity brews in Yemen, a small embittered country in the heart of the explosive Middle East.

Qahtan Al Shaabi is the muscle behind Yemen, a charismatic brute with a powerful following of fanatical Arabs.  Devil-worshippers - 35,000 of them.  No piece of cake even for the Death Merchant.

The CIA wants Shaabi out of the picture for reasons of their own.  It's the kind of job only Camellion would dare take a stab at - and even he's not sure it's such a smart idea...


Death Merchant 50
The Hellbomb Theft
Dead Wrong
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger

Scientists call them ADM's - atomic demolition munitions.  The CIA calls them "Little A's".  Whatever they're called, everyone knows these small, easily-concealed atom bombs are the most dangerous weapons on earth.

And two have been stolen.  They're headed into the treacherous hands of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi, a crazed Muslim fanatic bent on destroying Israel and becoming King of the Arab world.  With a couple of Little A's to play with, Qaddafi won't have any trouble bringing the rest of the world to its knees.

For the sake of global survival Camellion must overturn one of the most effective power schemes of the decade - faster than he's ever worked before!

The Inca File
Jungle Terror
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger In the deepest heart of the Andes mountains, surrounded by the thick dark jungles of Peru lie the ancient medical secrets of the Incas.  The Soviets send in a mission to get their thieving hands on this priceless information, new drugs with the capacity to increase Soviet world power one hundred percent.

The CIA hears of the Russian expedition and sends out its own team to investigate, a team that vanishes without a trace.  It becomes frighteningly clear this is no ordinary crisis - it's time for the Death Merchant to go into action, the kind of unparalleled destruction no one is ever prepared for.

A Sky that Kills!
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger As the Phoenix X-2, an incredible cargo carrier that will change the face of the twentieth century, nears completion in Great Britain, a strange series of deaths and accidents escalate into a vile and mysterious pattern.  Camellion isn't one to believe in coincidence.  If there's anything illicit behind this X-2 operation he'll root it out and tear it apart.

The Phoenix X-2 is scheduled to make her maiden voyage, stopping at each major urban center across the globe.  It's a perfect opportunity for sabotage - unless the Death Merchant can weave together all the clues and deliver a show stopping surprise...

The Judas Scrolls
Deadly Games
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger A British archeologist discovers twenty-seven ancient scrolls in the west Bank of Jordan.  The scrolls, written by none other than Judas Iscariot, contain information so devastating it could bring the Vatican to its knees.

Then the Palestine Resistance League steals the valuable scrolls and offers them to the highest bidder - Russia or the Vatican.  Price: $30 million.  But then the scrolls are stolen again.

This deadly game of hide and seek could undermine the entire Christian world.  Only the Death Merchant, master of cunning and disguise, can stop it.  He must penetrate the enemy dragnet and find the scrolls before the Russians do.  But now the hard part - even Camellion's not so sure he can get out of this death trap alive.

Apocalypse, USA!
Terror Squad
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger VXB-2L6 - it's the most deadly nerve gas ever invented.  In the hands of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi it could spell death for millions of Americans.

The mad Muslim strongman has sent a crack team of Libyan terrorists and East German spies to America to carry out his plan: the poisoning of the atmosphere above the east coast of the US.  If the scheme succeeds there will be twenty-five million corpses - from New York to the nation's capitol - and the world will rock as World War III breaks out.

Only Richard Camellion stands to stop Qaddafi's lust for blood - but the Death Merchant's search and destroy mission is turning into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the terrorist team.

Slaughter in El Salvador
Revolutionary Rampage
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The tiny Central American nation of El Salvador becomes a seething cauldron of blood as right wing death squads and leftist guerrillas engage in brutal warfare.  Civilians die by the thousands and the fragile pro-Western government teeters on the brink of collapse.

The turmoil is an opportunity for Moscow - and a deadly challenge for the Death Merchant.  Wanting neither a Moscow stooge or a bloody dictator in power, the US assigns Richard Camellion to terminate the crazed leaders of each extremist faction.

Luck won't be enough, the Death Merchant will need all the firepower he can get - because his mission will put him in the middle of a jungle holocaust.


Death Merchant 56
Afghanistan Crashout
Rescue Mission
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger "With the help of Allah," a handful of fanatic Afghanistan freedom fighters plan an all-out attack on the Soviet high command in the mountain city of Kabul.  But the odds are staggering: The Russians have twenty thousand crack troops and the most sophisticated weaponry; the rebels are poorly organized, and still depend on knives for fighting and carrier pigeons for communication.  Everyone, including the rebels, thinks that the attack will probably be a suicide mission.  Even the Death Merchant has his doubts.

But the CIA needs Richard Camellion to get two key Western spies out of the Soviet-controlled Central Prison in Kabul, a hellhole of inhuman slaughter and torture.  Only the Death Merchant could attempt such a daring rescue, but even he'll have to use more than just his great cunning and deadly firepower to pull this one off.

Freedom Run
The Death Merchant by Joseph Rosenberger The breathtaking but treacherous mountains of Romania become a deadly arena of intrigue.  RSBK head, General Ion Gheorghe Constantriescu, wants to defect to the United States, and only the Death Merchant can get him out of the isolated Soviet bloc country.  Two minor obstacles, however:  Constantriescu will only leave Romania with his wife, a fiercely loyal Russian KGB agent assigned to spy on her husband.  And the General's organization is doing its damndest to capture the Death Merchant.

Chances for success are extremely slim, like "trying to get the toothpaste back into the tube", as Camellion assesses the situation.  But with a little help from a handful of Romanian freedom fighters, a monastery of Jesuit priests, a top-secret aircraft, and a deadly arsenal of weapons, the master of cunning and disguise plots an extraordinary kidnapping and escape.

A specially trained group of KGB agents has managed to pull off a daring midday kidnapping of the inventor of the GA-1, Br. Burl Martin, from near his laboratory in California's famed "Silicon Valley".  Aided by a slick and ruthless motorcycle gang, Satan's Gentlemen, who "make the Hell's Angels look like Boy Scouts," the KGB plans to bring Martin to a Soviet submarine waiting off the Pacific coast.  The CIA is short on time, and even shorter on clues.

Only Richard Camellion stands to bring the scientist back alive.  But even the Death Merchant will have to use more than just his great cunning and awesome firepower to win at this deadly game of cat and mouse.

Now US Intelligence has discovered a seething Spetnaz base secreted in the rugged mountains of occupied Afghanistan.  Poised to ravage unsuspecting Pakistan, only thirty miles to the south, the Spetnaz will spearhead a brutal Russian drive to isolate the crucial oil fields of Saudi Arabia, and bring the oil-dependant West to its knees!

Only a miracle can strangle the impending invasion - or a master of mayhem named Richard Camellion, the Death Merchant.  He must rouse the troubled Pathan tribe of Pakistan to dare the impossible: a furtive thrust through the death-drenched Afghan frontier to surprise the Soviets and raze the savage Spetnaz base to the ground!

The Death Merchant

Excerpt from The Death Merchant: The Ways of Killing Men

The Death Merchant strode boldly down the center of Constitution Avenue, each hand filled with a brand new Auto Mag Kodiak, the big .50 caliber autoloaders sizzled as snowflakes hit the black, hot parkerized steel.

He unhurriedly spun and knelt to a single knee as one of Emprada's men located him and began lining up sights on his chest.  The Death Merchant grinned inwardly as he considered that he now lived a parody of his own life, a stream of 9mm slugs chewing into the pavement near his side.

Drivers screamed and dived to floorboards as the firefight raged within view of the White House.  The ear mic crackled and the Death Merchant listened as Lou King and Les Cole traded barbs from other parts of the city... 

Note from the author:

As explained in volume #63, The Soul Search Project, the name on my birth certificate is not Richard Camellion.  In this world governed by the Cosmic Lord of Death, it is best to remain safe in obfuscation.

If you order an autographed Collector Edition of the the new novel, I will sign it RJC...

There is a very special dedication to Uncle Joe in this book, recognizing the life of Joseph Rosenberger.
