For thousands of years, the best warriors of the world have met once in a generation for a trial of mortal combat that originated with the first master, the Great Wang himself. Sinanju has always triumphed, but legend has it that in a year of the tiger, a Master of Sinanju will fall at the hands of a powerful force, known only as The Other. Will the Destroyer become the destroyed?

Meanwhile, with Remo and Chiun not returning his calls, Smith must keep the president safe by himself. The lemony-faced Man from Folcroft will have to dust off his OSS skills and return to the field, confronting bombs, bullets, babes and the mysterious “B” in service of his country. Vengeance, destiny and myth collide in the Master’s Challenge. 

Remo Williams is The Destroyer, a New Jersey beat cop recruited—through highly unorthodox methods—by a secret government law-enforcement organization. Trained to become the most deadly assassin, Remo is America's last line of defense against mad scientists, organized crime, ancient undead gods, and anything else that threatens the Constitution. An action-adventure series leavened with social and political satire, the Destroyer novels have been thrilling readers worldwide for decades.
