Nick Carter. The Mind Poisoners (1966) (Killmaster #18) 157 pp. [pbo]
Publishers description: The student peace movement was anything but peaceful. Suddently, it swept beyond the bounds of democratic demonstration into widespread mass rioting that approached a state of insurrection and civil war. Cars were overturned, burned; girls were drawn into wild and sadistic orgies; hordes of students were catapulted into an incredible vortex of violence. The entire nation rocked in stunned horror. And as the hideous madness spread from campus to campus, Axe agent Nick Carter assumed the identity of a college professor. What he taught some of his students wouldn't be found in any library What he learned from them made his skin crawl! It went beyond radicalism. It was the ruthless plot of an organization of mind-poisoners who couldnt have cared less about the ruined lives of thousands of students they had made into the instruments of national downfall!
Setting: San Francisco (Chinatown); Berkeley
