Barney Daniels was one of the best agents the CIA ever had. There was no problem too large, no mystery too complex, no interrogation subject too taciturn. Daniels cracked them all. But years in the Company take a toll on a man. He cracked too, and in the middle of a tiny Central American village, Barney Daniels called an international press conference, making the covert overt and openly admitting the CIA’s clandestine involvement in the overthrow of Hispania’s regime. An embarrassment to America and a liability to the CIA, the Destroyer is tasked with ensuring Daniels’ silence. It’s a job that rubs Remo the wrong way—so much so that it may be his last.
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.
