It's a new wrinkle in murder: A haberdashery clerk suddenly leaves his home in Ohio, flies to Italy, and kills a Red terrorist. Everyone figures the guy's just coming apart at the seams--until it happens again...and again....

A pattern's emerging, and the international powers are getting hot under the collar. Remo and Chiun are sent to investigate before the U.S. is caught with its pants down. But then Harold W. Smith vanishes, along with the best brains in the world, and all at once CURE's less than a memory....

Remo and Chiun follow the thread of evidence to a tropical island and a man with a message--a man with trouble up his sleeve. And, they find, it's just a matter of time before he takes the entire world to the cleaner's....

Review: Shock Value is a solidly entertaining book. I like the subliminal mind control plot, and love what happens to Smith on the island. The main problem with this one, is the action sequences. They just don't pack the punch they should. They are confusing and dull.

Shock Value is good for its plot, but lacking overall. I give it button.tif (31554 bytes)button.tif (31554 bytes).
