The Destroyer Series centers around the adventures of Remo Williams. Remo is a Newark, N.J. police officer who gets framed for a drug dealer’s murder. Sentenced to death and on Death Row, he is offered the chance to stay alive by going along with plans to fake his death. Surviving his death sentence, he wakes to find he’s been recruited to be a highly trained enforcement arm for a secret government organization called CURE. Remo is trained in a style of martial arts called Sinanju named after the Korean village where it was created. His mentor is a wizened, old Korean named Chiun. Chiun is the single most lethal force on the planet.
Hilariously funny, the series details the exploits of Remo and Chiun as Remo attempts to save the country, one crime at a time with Chiun along to continue training Remo.
The political and social satire in this series will keep you rolling on the floor; but the true fan will tell you that the real magic of the series is the father-son bond which develops between Chiun and Remo and which has made the Destroyer Series one of the longest running action series in history.
