Norbert Peasewell is one of the best minds of his generation. A pacifist, though it's his own blood, he wouldn’t stop a mosquito from making a meal of his arm. An idealist, though he has a PhD in the philosophy of advanced computer science, he believes that computers, corporations, and governments are intrinsically evil. He swears he won’t work for them…until his wife leaves him and he’s forced to fend for himself. Then he creates a program to ensure he’ll never go without another meal again…a program dedicated to pure profit. A program that calls itself “Friend.” But what’s in a name?
Remo Williams is The Destroyer, a Jersey beat cop recruited—through highly unorthodox methods—by a secret government law-enforcement organization. Trained to become the most deadly assassin, 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.
