One legendary hero. One epic series.
Bay City, New Jersey has seen better days. Once a centre of coastal commerce, its docks sit empty, its factories idle, its business district a ghost town. It's the kind of blighted backwater that attracts criminals like a body draws blowflies.
Bay City's newly-appointed mayor, the sharp-suited, deep-pocketed Rocco Nobile, may have earnest urban renewal on his mind, or he may be a frontman for organised crime. Either way, in Bay City that puts him squarely in the sights of a gang of misguided vigilantes with a very twisted perspective on social justice.
Fortunately for Nobile, secret government agency CURE has decided the mayor should survive... so they send in the Destroyer.
Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.
Warren Murphy's books and stories have sold 50 million copies worldwide and won a dozen national awards. He has created a number of book series, including the Trace series and the long-running satiric adventure, The Destroyer.
Richard Ben Sapir worked as an editor and in public relations before creating the Destroyer series with Warren Murphy. Before his untimely death in 1987, Sapir penned a number of thriller and historical mainstream novels.
