Bay City, New Jersey has seen better days. Once a center of coastal commerce, its docks sit empty, its factories idle, its business district a ghost town. It’s the kind of blighted backwater that attracts criminals like a body draws blowflies. Bay City’s newly-appointed mayor, the sharp-suited, deep-pocketed Rocco Nobile, may have earnest urban renewal on his mind, or he may be a frontman for organized crime. Either way, in Bay City that puts him squarely in the sights of a gang of misguided vigilantes with a very twisted perspective on social justice. Fortunately for Nobile, CURE has decided the mayor should survive…so they send in the Destroyer.
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.
