The villainous Dr. Quake is threatening to unleash devastation on California unless he's payed a king's ransom. He has the technology, and California certainly has the fault lines. But while Quake and his lovely assistants may have plate tectonics under their thumbs, Remo and Chiun are two forces of nature they never planned to contend with.
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 wizened 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.
