Ernest Walgreen, modest businessman and former secret service agent, is blown to bits in an apparent warning to the President of the United States. The message: "You're next." But the foolhardy President refuses to play patsy to terrorist threats, which means it's up to Remo to protect him at any cost. Forced to play detective, Remo sets out to uncover who is behind the assassination, unless he wants his final assignment to be clean up duty.
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 the most 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.
