*Crime, Spies & Sleaze: In the 1970’s adventuring crime fiction moved away from dashing and debonair characters such as The Saint and The Baron, becoming more hard-edged and action-packed. This change was marked by almost all protagonists being given a name ending in ~er or ~or. We have two fine examples of this: The Penetrator and Expeditor. Lionel Derrick’s Penetrator (Mark Hardin) was part Welsh and part Cheyenne, allowing him to combine the fighting skills of two heritages to become the ultimate action hero. Luckily he never encountered Paul Edwards’ Expeditor (John Eagle), who was part Scottish border fighter and part Apache, allowing him to combine the fighting skills of two heritages to become the ultimate action hero. Both characters have magnificent physiques, incredible stamina and an amazing capacity to meet villains and beautiful women in equal measure (but only one has a camel!). We have all 14 Expeditor books and 6 Penetrator books, including #1-5. We recommend that you read these books lying down, in case the pace proves to be too much for you.
