A perfect mix of science fiction and a spy / adventure novel from the elder statesman of the space opera (E. E. "Doc" Smith) and his co-author (Stephen Goldin). The d'Alembert siblings, Yvette and Jules, are super secret special agents for the intergalactic government who also happen to be seasoned circus performers from a home planet with a higher gravity level that gives them super strength pretty much anywhere else. That's bad news for a highly organized criminal conspiracy on the gambling pleasure moon of Vesa where rich tourists are being systematically strangled, robbed, and disposed of. This has been going on for decades, but because of the huge numbers of tourists on Vesa, no one noticed until the wrong couple got caught in the web. Lots of action, some cool descriptions of the planet and it's people, and just a slight tinge of racism (you'd think sci-fi could get over that by the 70s but, no). ( )

A good, honest Sci-Fi fun read but I think I could soon get bored of these crime fighting siblings. I think the next two on my shelf will remain untouched for a while. ( )
