Drug-dealing appears to be down in three major American cities, but it’s really just a statistical oddity: someone’s got teenagers doing the dealing, and juvenile charges don’t appear in the crime stats. The trail leads Remo and Chiun to Detroit, where they discover that the newest engine of commerce in the Motor City may be high octane heroin, lining the pockets of some very well-off autoworkers’ kids. Autoworkers who are all congregants of a rather…unusual…new church.
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an all-American cop recruited—through highly unorthodox methods—into 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.
