The Mystic Rebel series is one of those hardly-known but surprising gems you might find in a dusty corner of the used bookstore shelves. This is the 1980's equivalent of a pulp dime novel; exotic locales, dangerous women, supernatural forces, evil cults, and bone-crunching action. The protagonist, Bart Lasker, is a CIA agent who crash lands in Tibet and, upon finding himself in a Buddhist-like temple, discovers that he is the reincarnation of an evil mystic warrior. As this ancient soul tries to take control of Lasker's body, his plight becomes reminiscent of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde... though instead of a split scientist/monster, he is one part Indiana Jones, one part deadly mystic assassin. Fun stuff.
