His name was Remo and he was making a polite visit to a Detroit suburb, a gracious large-lawned sprawling house in Grosse Pointe, miles from the inner city where people injected death into their arms or sniffed it or sold it in "protected" houses.
The Director of CURE? That was the new Director's first order to the Destroyer and his mentor Chiun; it was immediate trouble. Not for Smith, not yet anyhow...but for the deadly duo.
First they had to find Smith, who had successfully--so far--gone into hiding. But even before that they had to agree to kill him when they found him. And Chiun didn't want to.
Smith was, after all, Chiun's "emperor," the man who paid the salary that supported the ancient village of Sinanju, Chiun didn't know about CURE, just about Smith, and the cash had always arrived on time. That was enough.
Remo was a company man though, a trained killer who worked for CURE, the top-secret agency that didn't exist, and if they didn't want Smith to exist any longer, it was his job to murder him. Orders were orders.
But who was the new Director? Who had hired him and who had fired Smith? Had anyone? Could be be another infiltrator? CURE's security had been violated before, and there was always that possibility...
There were a lot of questions to be answered before judgment day.
Review: CURE is taken over by big business! The Destroyer is assigned to destroy Smith! Can Smith outwit the Destroyer and take back CURE? What a great book! This is about the most in depth study we are ever given of one of the series most important characters, Harold W. Smith. This novel really does have it all. If you haven't read Judgment Day, go out and find it now!
In my judgment, this novel gets .
