His name was Remo and he was trying to convince the guerrilla leader that, despite his UPI credentials, he was indeed an American spy.
The bad news was that the U.S. President was shot down over Mexico. The good news was that he survived. The bad news was he was captured by drug thugs. The good news was he was rescued by his courageous Vice-President. But the worst new was that the Vice-President was definitely not as heroic as Robert Redford or Hack Kennedy, as his photo ops would have the world believe. And now only Remo and Chiun could save the President from a free-form fiend who made bloodthirsty Aztec gods seem sweet and even the power of Sinanju helpless....
Review: The Mr. Gordons stories are consistently well done, and this novel is no exception. Gorgons' masquerading as Dan Quayle and crushing heads and breaking bones like some kind of cyborg-Schwartzenegger is too funny. Remo and Chiun are pushed to their breaking point against this foe, in an area where the breathing of Sinanju is disrupted because of the pollution. Thrilling story!
Survival Course is gripping, thrilling stuff .
