    PLOT

    Entomologists (bug scientists) are being killed while working on some very important discoveries. Remo is sent to protect the last one but he is killed anyway and a new species of fly is being developed that could take over the world.

    THOUGHTS

    Very boring so called supernovel. Could have been cut by a third to make a pretty good regular book. The best part to me was the Barry Schweid side plot and seeing some humanity from Smitty.

    QUOTES

    To feel perfect can be a lie.

    When death speaks, everyone listens.

    A wandering mind gathers only moss.

    It is one of my truly outstanding qualities that no matter how stupid you are, I never tell you about it.

    PLOT

    Remo is not at his best and needs time off. He and Chiun go to an island where a discovery has been made. A stone carved in a language that no one knows, except the Wo family, former employers of Sinanju who now want revenge.

    THOUGHTS

    Now we're talking Destroyer. This book has what I want in my Destroyers, history, humor, fast paced action, Remo in trouble. None of that talky filler that is started to show up in the books after Signet took over the publishing.

    PLOT

    Someone is punching holes in the ozone, threatening life on the planet. Russia thinks it is us and is planning a counter move. Remo has to find out who it really is. He has to do it without Chiun who is off trying to find the stolen treasuer of Sinanju.

    THOUGHTS

    This one has a good story but is way too long. It starts and ends well but gets very dull and tedious in the middle. Way too much filler about the Russians and others.


    DESTROYER #64 THE LAST ALCHEMIST

    CHARACTERS

    Beatrice Bendetsen-Five year old girl who is saved from drowning by remo in chapter two.

    Nathalie Watson-Newswoman wno ends up with a mike in her esophagus.

    Remo ate some kind of sandwich with oils on it while he was flying.

    There is an office where all strange killings are reported. This is Smitty's way of covering all of Remo and Chiun's work.

    This is not a big thing to report but I think it was the first time it has been mentioned that Remo has a hairy chest.

    Smitty's secretary calls his wife Maude and says she once visited Folcroft 12 years ago.

    HISTORY

    Master Gi was a great historian, he also convinced Kublai Khan to start using assassins. p37

    The Lesser Wang has the shortest entry in the Histories. "Wang was. And he didn't." He was master during a very slow period. p199

    Master Go served the king of Spain 300 or 600 years ago but refused the gold of the king because it was cursed and would make a fully trained body nauseous. pp198-203

    THOUGHTS

    Enjoyable book. Remo really has to work to figure out what is going on here and comes close to death in the process. Chiun has to save him, again. There is also the added bonus of some Sinanju history.

He goes back to New Jersey and his home. Chiun prepares to kill the President if he is affected by the amnesia.

    THOUGHTS

    Another good story burdened with excessive length. Would have been a much better book if it was shorter in all its descriptions of actions by background characters.

    Master Sayak worked for a Chinese emperor to protect him. He gave orders that the Master could not kill the emperor's concubine. She is the one behind the threat on the emperor and she orders the Master to kill the emperor. He does it because "He who will let an assassin be what he should be is his rightful employer".

    He who reasons with fools dresses in warm aspic.

    The handmaiden of success is failure.

    There are only so many times a determined man can fail before he succeeds.

    PLOT

    Some crooked lawyers seem to bbe causing accidents so as to profit from lawsuits. Remo is sent to find out how they do it without using force. Smitty wants them to stand trial as examples to other lawyers. This puts Remo in great jeopardy and Chiun is sure that Remo will not survive.

    THOUGHTS

    This one is ok but there is little action. Remo acting as a detective and not an assassin really cuts down on it. Still, there are some good scenes and it is a fair story and sign of our country with all the lawsuits.

    A Russian super-hypnotist escapes from Russia and comes to the US. They want him back and we want him stopped. Remo and Chiun try to stop him but he can hypnotize them, too. Even Smitty tries to do something but gets fooled.

    THOUGHTS

    I enjoyed the part of this book that dealt with the Great Wang. The rest of the book was only fair. I had a hard time buying the hypnotist especially when he was able to fool Remo and Chiun so easily. All of the Russian background got in the way, too.

    THOUGHTS

    I liked this one. Remo and Chiun stay involved throughout the book. There is very little of the useless filler information that usually detracts from the so-called Super Novels. There was one problem for me with this book. Chiun gets hit by a ricochet shot from a gunman. No way.
