One legendary hero. One epic series.
It seems like a good idea at first - a bacterium developed to consume oil spills at sea. But when the bug mutates, threatening to convert all the petroleum in the world into wax, Western civilization is up for grabs, and a lot of slimy characters are determined not to let it slip through their fingers.
This is where Remo and Chiun come in. That is, until Chiun, the Master of Sinanju, cuts out - to join the opposition on the promise of gold for a certain Korean village.
Remo's left in a real bind. And with his mentor bent on wiping out all that the ex-cop stands for, more than ever before it looks as if the Destroyer and CURE have reached the end of the road.
Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.
