This Book Was Written
By Chiun, Reigning Master of Sinanju
A growing trend threatens all civilization and it must be stopped. I refer, of course, to the amateur assassin-that crazed individual who kills will-nilly with no purpose or profit in mind.
We have to do something about these lunatics. They are hurting the market.
This books tells of the glory of real assassins, the Masters of the House of Sinanju, so you can appreciate true professionalism. A book inside this book also tells how Remo Williams came to be given Sinanju, but he is white and doesn't count and is hardly worth discussing.
Pinnacle Books promises they will not mess this book up. I have no reason to believe these people, but since I am a good soul, I comtinue to hope.
Review: I paid $50.00 for my near-mint copy of this book. After reading it, I decided that it was the best deal I had ever made. As a guide to the series, it's not perfect (the art is horrible, and it only deals with the first fifty books or so), but the good more than makes up for it. The novella, "The Day Remo Died" is possibly the finest early story ever. Other excellent features are: The Assassin's Quick Weight-Loss Diet; the Best Assassinations; and the 37 Simple Steps to Sexual Pleasure (I'd list them for you now, but I'm sworn to secrecy).
There's a reason that every Destroyer fan wants this book... .
