Black Magic in New York

Black Magic in New York

Behind the dazzling, frantic world of New York’s discotheques and penthouse bedrooms, a group of black magicians are beginning their dark ritual. The pentagram’s are drawn and the right spells cast. They are divining who His Serene Highness Prince Malko Linge really is.

Special Agent Malko claims he’s one of the CIA’s top men; Others say he was – and maybe still is – one of Heinrich Himmler’s SS boys.

Between the slander and the truth, lies the lovely young millionairess Sabrina. And she knows Malko more intimately than anyone …

BLACK MAGIC IN NEW YORK is the third in the SAS series of bestseIling spy thrillers, whose film and TV rights have been bought by the Harold Robbins Company. Other titles published by New English Library are SAS VERSUS THE CIA and WEST OF JERUSALEM

Thanks to Dave [H. P. Saucecraft] for the cover scan and blurb!
