The first one is great, and you don't want to miss it. The second one's good too. After that they get worse, and it seems to be just a matter of how far you make it before you give up. I read OPERATION FIREBALL (the third one) first, and liked it, but I read later one recently and that did it for me. THE NAME OF THE GAME IS DEATH, the first one, is from 1962, so they probably don't have it. Depending on how much they cost, buy the earliest one(s) and see how you like it.
