Chinese Puzzle (Destroyer Series #3) by Warren Murphy, Richard Sapir
When a visiting Chinese general is kidnapped on American soil, it looks as if the President's goal of diplomatic d�tente will be dashed. The FBI is helpless, the CIA has no leads, and only one hope remains: CURE. Remo and Chiun must race to find the abductee in time to save face and prevent an international incident. Someone wants the People's Republic to declare war on the United States, and it's up to the Destroyer to keep the peace.
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an all-American cop recruited�through highly unorthodox methods�by a secret government law-enforcement 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.
The third Remo Williams novel, Chinese Puzzle, is a turning point for the series. It's the book in which Murphy and Sapir first really discovered the magic they had created in the the characters of Remo and Chiun, and in the dynamic of their relationship. The Remo-Chiun partnership that so many have come to love over the years has its beginning in Chinese Puzzle.
