by Robert Ansel Kellar
During the years 1946-1947, three million veterans from overseas returned to the United States. Among them is Captain Jared Hardman, who is resolved to become the master of his destiny rather than just a pawn whose role is determined by external events and persons. He also intends to locate his college sweetheart with whom he lost contact during the war.
Because of his success in tracking down AWOL soldiers and army personnel engaged in black market activities in Germany, he establishes UNITED INVESTIGATOR. On the morning of his appointment with his old friend, Carl Ross, he discovers that Ross has disappeared. He promises Mrs. Ross to find her husband.
Hardman meets Kit Kitchener, a freelance writer who becomes intrigued with Jared and his determination to find his college sweetheart. Jaredís search for her and Ross involves him in exciting confrontations with the Mafiaís Black Hand gang in New Jersey and the Drangheta gang in Toronto, Canada.
