Savage Song: A Special Edition Destroyer Novella by Warren Murphy
She is the world's greatest entertainer; in a few brief years, she has changed show business forever and tens of millions of people follow her every move. Now it looks like someone is trying to end her career for good. She's not the kind to roll over and play dead for anybody.
The red phone in the White House is lifted for the first time in years and a request is made to "Keep her safe"--in the interest of national security, of course.
Enter Remo Williams, the Destroyer, and Chiun, the Master of Sinanju and the world's greatest assassin. They're ordered to keep the music world's brightest star safe by CURE at the behest of the President.
Move over Barbra. Watch out, Cheeta Ching. Sorry, Judge Jenny. Chiun has gone gaga over a new lady. Killers, stand back. You're messing with the wrong girl and you ain't seen nothing yet.
About the series:
Sentenced to death for a crime he didn't commit, ex-cop Remo Williams is rescued from the electric chair and recruited by a secret government organization as an assassin, targeting criminals who are beyond the law. Remo's trainer is a grouchy old Korean named Chiun, whose mastery of the terrifyingly powerful martial art of Sinanju makes him the deadliest man alive.
Hilariously satirical and timely, the winning combination of action, humor, and mysticism has made the Destroyer one of the best-selling series of all time. With more than 150 books and over 50 million copies sold, the Destroyer has been praised by the LA Times as "flights of hilarious satire," and gave birth to the mythology of the brash young Westerner taught by an ancient, inscrutable master.
