One legendary hero. One epic series.

Top American executives are being murdered. The FBI and CIA have come up empty in their investigation, when they learn of a vicious plot to assassinate the President. They are running out of time. With no leads - and no hope - they desperately need the special talents only the Destroyer can provide. Remo Williams is summoned to the nation's capital as the President's only chance for survival.

Cutting to the core of this deadly conspiracy, Remo discovers it goes far deeper than he could ever have imagined. He and Chiun, his Sinanju mentor, must stop the killers before the President pays the ultimate price.

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