Overview

A stone idol is defaced while on display in a national museum. A congressman, a socialite, and others are found with their hearts cut out, sacrificed to a god whose secret name can summon storms. A king of the vanished Actatl people has been found, and he�s determined to avenge his lost civilization. There�s a bloody trail for Remo and Chiun to follow, but that�s the biz sweetheart. Unchecked, the worldwide network of the Actatl could destroy all that CURE has worked for.

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.
