Something`s rotten in the garbage business -- and CURE is ready to take out the trash . . .

IF IT LOOKS LIKE TROUBLE AND SMELLS LIKE TROUBLE . . .

Mayana -- a South American country known only for a mass cult suicide -- is poised to become the salvation of a trash-choked globe. An ingenious new device called the Vaporizer can turn garbage into thin air and trash into cash for the beleaguered nation. And what could be a more beauteous sight for a global environmental summit than barges piled high with the world`s smelly refuse parading through Mayana`s harbor.

Actually, Dr. Harold Smith smells trouble, and with the U.S. President headed for the summit, he dispatches Remo and Chiun to the scene, posing as garbage scientists. And not a moment too soon, since torpedoes are sinking garbage scows left and right, leaving a stinking mess and a huge crisis. It`s clear that nobody -- including a Japanese industrialist, anex-Soviet premier turned peacenik environmental tree hugger, and the president of Mayana himself -- can be trusted, specially when the Destroyer uncovers a diabolical plot of global domination that promises to totally trash the free world . . .

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 .
