Macau na colecção "Nick Carter"

Macau sempre foi (e continuará a ser) fonte de inspiração para histórias de intriga e suspense... É o caso desta série de livros de aventura muito conhecida - Nick Carter - iniciada em 1964 e terminada na década de 1990 ao fim de 261 títulos. Os livros foram escritos por diversos autores sob pseudónimo. Dois dos títulos são inspirados no território. O último data de 1985 "The Macao Massacre" e o primeiro é de 1968. Intitula-se simplesmente "Macao". Eis o resumo da história...
Princess Morgan de Gama is an addict, a whore, and a deadbeat. As the story begins, a film of her sexual exploits is being auctioned off to three international buyers. The Portuguese government would like her locked in an asylem. Meanwhile, an Angolan rebel needs her to keep an old French general in his service, and has told the Red Chinese that acquiring her is a part of any deal they may want to make with the rebellion. David Hawk, head of AXE, has a plan to use her to eliminate the head of Chinese counterintelligence. He sends Nick Carter with her to Hong Kong, and from there to Macau, knowing that Colonel Chun Li would have a trap ready for them.The two do end up in the trap, and face a sticky end chained up in a dungeon with mutant killer rats. However, in the end, Colonel Li is killed, the Angolan rebel leads his forces to the rescue, and the Princess ends up marrying the head rebel, Prince Askari.
