The villainous Dr. Quake is threatening to unleash devastation on California unless he's payed a king's ransom. He has the technology, and California certainly has the fault lines. But while Quake and his lovely assistants may have plate tectonics under their thumbs, Remo and Chiun are two forces of nature they never planned to contend with.
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an all-American cop recruited—through highly unorthodox methods—by a secret government law-enforcement organization. Trained in the esoteric martial art of Sinanju by his wizened Korean mentor, Chiun, Remo is America's last line of defense against mad scientists, organized crime, ancient undead gods, and anything else that threatens the Constitution. An action-adventure series leavened with social and political satire, the Destroyer novels have been thrilling readers worldwide for decades.
Another Fun Destroyer Book!
This is only the fifth book in a series which gave us roughly four books a year for decades, so the series is still kind of settling into itself. This is not a bad thing, as far as I'm concerned. The fun is there. The dynamic between Remo and Chiun is starting to grow into what those of us who came into the series from the middle have come to expect. The one warning I will give is that this book, by today's standards, is quite politically incorrect. Some may find that offensive, others may find it refreshing, and still others will find it just is, and not care much, if at all. I belong to the latter category. Still, I thought it should be addressed. That's the biz, sweetheart.
