The Last Dragon
By Will Murray
His name was Remo, and he was explaining to the assorted rapists, cannibals, and serial killers on Utah State Prison's death row that he was from the American Civil Liberties Union.
The good news was that a huge dinosaur was alive in darkest Africa, and a beautiful female cryptozoologist was looking after it. The bad news was that a fast-food king saw it as a mouth-watering chance to make quick cash--and a certain Oriental Master named Chiun had eyes for its bones. This behemoth from the depths of the past was going to hamburger heaven--unless Remo annihilated the appetite of his own mentor, and turned the dining tables on a ghoul of greed who had cooked up a perfect plan to make both the dinosaur and the Destroyer extinct....
Review: I've always enjoyed the way Mr. Murray handles the interplay between Remo and Chiun. He has really captured the essence of their relationship and coveys it perfectly. I loved the Remo/Chiun sections of this book. The rest of the plot was only just adequate. I think it was better as a comic book (much of this story was used in the Marvel Comic mini-series).
Like the mighty Bronto, this book is big and slow ½.
