by Richard Sapir and Warren Murphy
His name was Remo and the hotel guest wouldn't let him go.
When people associated with the mob decide to testify against their former bosses the government has a policy of providing them with new identities and a new home, safe from discovery by vengeful thugs.
But someone has been systematically murdering them one by one. Nobody sees the killers or hears them. The most ingenious covers are broken, the most carefully hidden witnesses are found. Dead.
The killers are not only efficient, they are creative. Robert Calder discovered this when he flipped a Frisbee for the last time. Who'd think of booby-trapping a Frisbee?
Official Washington seems helpless. The FBI has no explanations. So somebody pushes all the panic buttons. Even the one that summons Remo and Chiun. A U.S. Army team is also thrown into it.
The major general in charge loses no time in solving the problem...it's Remo and Chiun! America's premier assassins.
The race is on, three groups of professional killers all out to do their job.
Will the killers kill the killers before they get killed themselves?
Review: I can only guess that either Sapir or Murphy harbored a secret fear of children. What a great idea! Training children to work as assassins was a brilliant concept at the time, of something which could never happen. Of course, after all the recent school shootings, who's to say that there isn't some secret government program doing just that today...
Nah... Anyway, this is a very good book and gets a score of ½.
