Solly Martin is as ambitious as he is unsuccessful. Out of ideas, he hires two goons to torch his bankrupt business for the insurance money, but a young punk beats them to the barbecue—and fries the felons in the process. Flames just seem to come to him naturally. Martin, feeling the heat of his new discovery, takes his young friend on a cross-country road trip, leaving nothing but embers in their wake. Martin and his protégé manage to avoid raising suspicion, but when someone Remo cares about goes up in smoke, it’s not long before the Destroyer is hot on their trail.
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.
