Présentation de l'éditeur

Someone is taking a special interest in the Brewster Forum think tank: compromising photos have been taken; their security officer is dead under suspicious circumstances; information about its members is being traded in shadowy places by shadowy figures. This wouldn't normally be a job for America's most deniable covert agency, but the Forum has recently devised what it calls a 'simple little plan to conquer the world'.

National security is at risk, and there's only one man tough enough to take on the threat.

Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an ex-cop who should be dead, but instead fights for the secret government law-enforcement organization, CURE. Trained in the esoteric martial art of by his aged mentor, Chiun, Remo is America's last line of defence.

Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.

Book Description

The big brains behind the business usually have many pots boiling on their stove, or running their think engines as the case may be. But when the business motto of the Brewster forum, "Pursuing Research Into Original Thought", leads them to some eccentric affairs that throw them far enough off track, Remo Williams enlists the help of his Master Chiun to solve a harrowing crime.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I still love this one 18 juillet 2005

First, I have to agree with Fred: the original cover art was much better than the current reissue template.

This book did not directly feature Chiun. Remo was on his own. Remo's assessments of the staff at the forum are terrific and only get better when he learns the secret behind their plan to conquer the world.

This is a down and dirty, physical Destroyer who uses his extraordinary skill at fighting and a unique chess move to save the day.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Getting better, but not quite there yet. 29 décembre 2003

It's good to see a re-issue of an extremely popular series, and "The Destroyer" novels will probably draw interest from history majors as well as those seeking a diversion: Murphy and Sapir tended to use contemporary -- at that time -- social problems and issues as themes.
This novel doesn't properly represent a good start for someone first reading a Destroyer novel (try #3 in the series first), but like #1 in the series, it's essential for the collector and certainly not a waste of money.
There are, however, two minor points I raise. One, the reissue prices are ridiculous for paperbacks. Two, and probably most disappointing, is the decision not to re-issue the original covers. Man, some of that artwork would definitely drive a teenage boy to pick one up.

Great fun read; I read a lot of this series in the 70s and 80s in paperback. I really enjoyed the bantering relationship between Remo and his "little father." Glad to see them coming out on the Kindle since I let my wife talk me into getting rid of all my paperbacks a few years ago.

Did anyone else notice that the Kindle version seemed incomplete?

I noticed this especially in the portion where Remo and Deborah (the Jewish doctor) are talking in her cottage. It was disjointed, choppy, and didn't flow properly. It seemed as if parts of the conversation were missing.

It wasn't a bad book...that part, though, was the most confusing.

All in all, not bad for book #2.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Destroyer is Rib-cracking GREAT! 13 décembre 2012

I started reading these books in the early seventies and was hooked. I would wait impatiently for the new one every few months, driving the bookstore owner nuts with "Is it here yet?" over and over. The authors had me believing there was a sun source for martial arts in the Master of Sinanju. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Remo and Chiun squabbling over the latest whatever.

Try at least a couple of these. If you keep an open mind, it might take you for the thrill ride you're looking for.
