Overview

"Abraxas!" The word is on everyone's lips, but no one's quite sure why. It seems to promise something, though... a new golden age in which nationalism is forgotten and the world operates selflessly, for the prosperity of all. Can it be a coincidence that many of the top minds on the planet have suddenly disappeared, Dr. Smith among them? Could Abraxas usher-in an era that makes CURE and Sinanju unnecessary? Or will we need The Destroyer more than ever?

Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an all-American cop recruited�through highly unorthodox methods�to serve in CURE, a covert government organization. Trained in the esoteric martial art of Sinanju by his aged 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.
