His name was Remo and he didn't bother to come in under the barbed wire or to vault one of the machine gun emplacements or to secrete himself in one of the convoy trucks that supplied this "impregnable" Rocky Mountain command base of Colonel Mactrug's Killer School.
Oil Glut or Oil Gluttons?
It seems like a good idea at first--a bacterium developed to consume oil spills at sea. But when the bug mutates, threatening to convert all the petroleum in the world into wax, Western civilization is suddenly up for grabs. And a lot of slimy characters are determined not to let it slip through their fingers.
Which is where Remo and Chiun come in--that is, until the Master of Sinanju cuts out...to join the opposition. It seems that black gold generates a lot of the yellow kind, and someone's offering to send a little something extra to a certain Korean village....
Remo's left in a real bind. And with his mentor bent on wiping out all that the ex-cop stands for, now, more than ever before, it looks as if The Destroyer and C.U.R.E. have reached the end of the road....
Review: Profit Motive is a great book. Chiun and Remo being on opposite sides of a case was a nice twist, and Friend is a cool villain. There's plenty of deadly fun for any fan in this novel!
I give Profit Motive .
