His name was Remo and his ears hurt.
During a CIA budget war, a group of assassins mistakenly triggers an ingenious CIA plot originally planned in the 1950s--and a world-wide killing spree of top-level Russian officials begins....
Only The Destroyer, with the all-wise Chiun and the ever-wild Ruby, can stop them from reaching their primary target--the Russian premier!
However, in the midst of all this carnage, Chiun still wants Remo and Ruby to create a super baby as the heir to Sinanju, before the fovernment budget cuts wipe out welfare funds!
How will The Destroyer cope with life and death, love and procreation, all at once?
Review: I thought that this was a great adventure. Sure, there's nothing all that dangerous to Remo and Chiun going on, but there's enough action to keep the pages turning. The scenes between Ruby and Chiun are priceless. I only wish that Chiun had gotten his heir to Sinanju's future from Ruby and Remo. What a child that would be, unusually thick wrists and an unusually screeching voice.
Last Call was worth the dime, I rate it as a .
