For centuries, the ancient House of Sinanju is recognized as the center of learning for all the martial arts. From the ancestral nucleus of Oriental power and prestige have come the world`s deadliest assassins and killers, also man`s greatest protectors and warriors. To become a Master of Sinanju, however, is to totally perfect one`s mental, spiritual, and physical powers. Very few mortals possess even a fraction of the necessary skills. Mere muscle or brains do not matter. Rarer still have been the men who dare to even approach the lowest steps of this shrine to violence and sudden death at Sinanju. The masters of Sinanju are the sun source and essence of the martial arts since prehistory. Recent upstart fighting techniques such as Kung Fu, Karate, Ninja, Aikido are but minor variations in the deadly armament of a Master. Only foreplay to the Grand Battle. And now, for the first time, a Westerner, a white man, Remo Williams, is defending the Holy Place against his relentless archenemy, Nuihc. Not since the Mongol invasions and the barbaric Chinese warlords has the land trembled in such anticipation. The scenario begins in New Jersey. The die is cast in a U.S. government submarine. Now Chiun and the Premier of Korea will witness the Grand Battle. And Remo Williams - the Destroyer - is being allowed but one blow. One split-second opportunity to punch, slash, chop, smash or kick . . . The ghosts of a thousand warriors dance in the dust as the two men face each other. And Chiun knows.

Warren Murphy ( Warren Burton Murphy ) Warren Murphy was born September 13, 1933 in Jersey, where he also worked as a reporter and editor. After the Korean War, he went into politics, "but when everyone I worked with went to jail, I decided that God was sending me a signal to change jobs." It was after this that the first novel about Destroyer came out. Warren Murphy currently lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The series was founded in 1971 by two writers, Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir. The main character, Remo Williams, is another professional killer in the service of the super-secret organization CURE, whose goal is to fight all sorts of bad guys using methods that have nothing to do with US law. KURE is known only to a very limited circle of government officials. Hundreds of officials work in CURE, but only one - the leader Harold Smith - knows about the goals of the organization. And only he can give orders to one single executor - Remo. To carry out the most incredible tasks, Williams is helped by his teacher Chiun, the Master of Sinanju, who owns the heights of the art of killing. It is written easily, one might even say carefree, there are elements of fantasy, a lot of eroticism. The murders are described quite vividly, naturally, with love. Characters and plots are deliberately caricatured and grotesque. Behind the grandiose secrets and designs of villains, very mundane and petty motives often lie. Because of this, after reading the next novel, there is often a feeling of some disappointment. Starting the series, Murphy and Sapir gradually gave way to other authors. The last books, and there are already 132 of them, were written by James Malleni.  Spy mania , bibliography (Russian) , bibliography (eng.) , official site , IMDb .
