A bloodless coup in the oil-producing state of Lobynia deposes the king and threatens global oil supplies. American scientists, looking for alternative oil processes, have been murdered. Is the new leader of Lobynia masterminding a plot to corner the international energy market, or is a more sinister force at work? Remo and Chiun are sent to get the oil flowing again, but the Master of Sinanju discovers that he has an age-old contract to fulfill. And a mysterious stranger is lurking in the shadows.
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, a seemingly unremarkable beat cop recruited—through highly unorthodox methods—by a secret government law-enforcement organization. Trained to become a deadly assassin, 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.
