Interior text

For Him, Death Was Not Final

When the agents of evil murdered Martin Donner, they thought that the un-man was no more, that they had deprived the world organization of its greatest chance to achieve peace. Now their world-wide conspiracy could take over the entire planet, still recovering from a nuclear war.

But if the un-man was dead, who was this man who looked identically like him, who fought the conspirators with the same fantastic skill and wit which Donner had possessed?

Suddenly this new un-man (or was he really new?) became the object of a planetary search, the outcome of which would determine the future of the world.
