His name was Remo and he was going to make sure the man's children were on hand.
The Deadliest Stone of All
A bigger chill than snow. Harder to kick than heroin.
The Destroyer was stoned on star lust. Remo was losing it...and loving it...in the highly-trained arms of Kim Kiley, Hollywood sex specialist...and the hottest weapon in the Wo family arsenal.
Okay, the House of Wo was steamed. But two thousand years was a long tme to hold a grudge against the Destroyer. The Wos were like that, though. Give those guys a revenge motive, and it was carved in stone. The family stone. Where Prince Wo the Nearly Great had preprogrammed the Destroyer to self-destruct...unless Chiun could get his mind off sex and back onto violence where it belonged....
Review: This was the most elusive of all the books in my Destroyer collection, except for the Assassin's Guide and Inside Sinanju. I can remember when it was the last regular book in the series I needed, and I lusted after it big time. I was watching a movie called "Jake Speed" which was a take-off of the whole men's adventure genre. The main character makes a reference to Remo Williams and holds up a Destroyer book and it's this one. It was taunting me! Well, it took nearly five years, but I finally got The Seventh Stone!
This is a pretty good novel. I love the Wo family, they were a great bunch of foes for Remo and Chiun. The secret of the seventh stone was brilliant. I wish that the author had listed the other six stones, but that's a minor quibble.
The Seventh Stone is a solid book worth ½.
