Vengeance of the Tau

Jon Land, Author Fawcett Books $5.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-449-14776-4
A powerful evil force has turned away its murderous attention from dope kingpins, ex-Nazis and Central American warlords to start tearing apart average Joes. International troubleshooter Blaine McCracken must thwart whoever is behind this malevolent power. Following a secret map to a dig in Turkey, McCracken meets up with a spunky archeologist, Melissa Hazelhurst, who has inadvertently found the source of this dark force--a deadly Nazi formula hidden since WW II's end. This stuff, called ``White Death,'' incapacitates foes, thereby allowing their wholesale slaughter. A bloodthirsty bunch called the Tau hopes to police the world by sprinkling it with ``White Death.'' Naturally, McCracken and his gang of toughs aren't about to let this happen without a fight. Gracing his story with characters such as a Native American policeman known as ``Injun Joe,'' a mincing gang of gay Kung-Fu assassins on Rollerblades, and an all-female Israeli commando team referred to as ``babes,'' Land ( The Council of Ten ) has included something to offend nearly everyone in this unintentionally hilarious yarn.
