The Destroyer Sinanju Series
Destoyer Series by Warren Murphy & Richard SapirDestroyer Series by Warren Murphy & Richard Sapir
The Destroyer Series with over 130 books is full of laugh-out-loud political satire and social commentary which has been translated into several languages. Nothing is sacred not politicians, politics, other adventure novels, religion, or sex. The Destroyer Series has spawned a Movie Remo Williams, the Adventure begins which inspired the book by the same title, a TV episode, and a series of comics and posters.
Throughout history, the North Korean, seaside village of Sinanju has supplied the world's great leaders with assassins. The art of Sinanju is the "true" martial art - all others are mere shadows. There is only one Master of Sinanju per generation (Sinanju being the name of the village and the martial art.) From the time of the Pharaohs they have been the most feared assassins in the world. A master can hold his breath over an hour, rip steel doors from their hinges, dodge bullets, overturn a moving tank, outrun a car, seem invincible and only means of financial support for the village of Sinanju.
When non-violent means fail to save the U.S. from corruption, greed, and crime The current MOS (Master of Sinanju) is hired by a covert agency (CURE) of the U.S. Government. Since Sinanju has always worked for kings and emperors, Chiun (the current MOS), calls the head of CURE Emperor. Emperor Smith has had Chiun train a white, ungrateful, American as the next MOS.
This wonderful series seems to attract truly wonderful individuals generous of heart and spirit. Two of these are Geof Darrow, an incredibly talented author and artist and Graham Malone of New Zealand who last I heard was working on writing childrenís books.
