One legendary hero. One epic series.
Top-secret government agents Remo and Chiun must try and find the connection between a strange array of subjects: the banana republic of Hispania, the Peaches of Mecca, and a luscious blonde named Gloria X. The missing link lies in the tequila-soaked brain of Barney Daniels, an ex-CIA agent who is spirited away to a mental hospital when he tips a few wild stories to the press.
Under the influence of an intoxicating woman, Daniels becomes a hired assassin. Every cutthroat in New York City is plying him with drinks to find out what he knows, and Daniels is having a high time... until someone slips him a mickey. It all comes back to his staggering memory in a dream: it's not the US, but the Russians who are pouring missiles into the lush jungles of Hispania.
Unless Remo and Chiun act fast, Washington, DC is going to be destroyed.
Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.
