Overview

What could be more natural than a patient dying on the operating table? Complications happen, and sometimes the patient just� never wakes up. No one knows that better than Dr. Dan Demmet, anesthesiologist at Baltimore's respected Robler Clinic. And, it must be said, a man with a developing drinking problem, a terrible golf game, and gambling debts that put him on the wrong side of some very� persuasive paisans. Gentlemen who appreciate it when complications happen to specific patients. It's clean, it doesn't draw attention, and it solves any number of unfortunate problems, until CURE takes note and sends in their own team of experts: Remo and Chiun.

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.
