I thought this was a fun one! Some of the later Tarzan books that I've read recently hadn't really held my interest, but this one, like many of the earlier books in the series, was fun, fast-paced, and full of adventure.

Tarzan the Invincible (Tarzan #14) by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Ballantine Books 1930) (Fiction). Tarzan, Nkima, Muviro, and the Waziri prevent Soviet communists from looting Opar. My rating: 7/10, finished 1973.
Tarzan foils the plans of an international group of Communists plotting to sow discord in colonial Africa. However the Russian leader of the group is secretly trying to set himself up as Emperor of all Africa, one of many sub-plots.

Burroughs brings back some characters from past volumes: La, High Priestess of Opar, Jad-Bal-Ja the lion, and Nkima the monkey.

Still great fun!

This was a very typical Tarzan book with a couple of entertaining twists at the end.

Tarzan foils the plots of those dirty reds.
