Hell's Legionaire (Stories from the Golden Age)by L. Ron Hubbard
Synopses & Reviews
American Ann Halliday is as sexy as Rita Hayworth and as fiery as the Sahara sun. And now she’s feeling some real heat, as the prize captive of the Berber leader Abd el Malek . . . also known as “The Killer.”
But Abd el Malek wants Ann alive—and in chains—subject to his every whim and fantasy. Dusty Colton, however, an American deserter from the French Foreign Legion, has a different idea. With all the swagger of Robert Mitchum, he’s determined to give “The Killer” a taste of his own bloody medicine. The only problem is . . . Dusty himself is wanted for murder.
Can Ann and Dusty team up and turn evil on its head? One thing’s for sure—between Ann and the Hell’s Legionnaire, the temperature is about to get even hotter.
On the subject of North Africa, Hubbard said that writers too often “forget a great deal of the languorous quality which made the Arabian Nights so pleasing. Jewels, beautiful women, towering cities filled with mysterious shadows, sultans equally handy with robes of honor and the beheading sword.” Hubbard brings this unique insight to his stories of North Africa and the Legionnaires, investing them with an authenticity of time, place and character that will keep you asking for more.
Also includes the adventure stories, The Barbarians, in which a Legionnaire sets out to avenge a savage killing and makes a stunning discovery, and The Squad That Never Came Back, the story of a man who has uncovered the secret to a city of gold—a secret that could turn into a death sentence.
“Hubbard’s stories of Americans in the French Foreign Legion positively sparkle in audio format . . . just plain fun.” —AudioFile (Awarded AudioFile’s best AudioBook of the Year Award for 2012 )
American Dusty Colton flees the French Foreign Legion to escape a harsh prison sentence only to rush headlong into a Berber tribal lair. Despite his long odds of a solo escape, he can’t leave a captive American woman behind and must find a way for them to outrun the Berbers and the Foreign Legion.
A triumphant tale. Sentenced to a French penal colony for killing an officer (in self-defense), American Dusty Colton flees the French Foreign Legion he so willingly joined and rushes headlong into a Berber tribal lair. To his horror, he discovers a captive American woman who's in the process of being whipped and tortured by the bandit leader.
Despite the low odds of him winning out against the entire Berber tribe alone, Dusty can't leave the woman behind. Even if he figures out an escape from the camp, he still has to manage a way to get them both out of the country alive with both the Foreign Legion and the Berbers at their heels. ALSO INCLUDES THE ADVENTURE STORIES "THE BARBARIANS" AND "THE SQUAD THAT NEVER CAME BACK"
“Hubbard’s stories of Americans in the French Foreign Legion positively sparkle in audio format....just plain fun.” —AudioFile
