His name was Remo and he must have been cheating.
Fade In/ Fade Out
An eccentric professor invents the world's greatest entertainment device--a gadget that will let you watch your own most secret fantasies on your television, in glorious full color, with stereophonic sound an optional extra.
The Mafia would like the machine, hoping to market it as the ultimate vice.
And the TV moguls along Madison Avenue would also like the professor's invention, too--just to bury it. After all, who's going to watch summer reruns when he can have his own dream machine?
And Dr. Harold Smith, head of the supersecret agency called CURE, would also like to get his hands on the machine because he knows something else about it--that it can be dangerous and deadly.
When bodies start littering the place, can Remo and Chiun, CURE's supersecret secret weapons, be far away? And when they're on the scene, it's lights camera, action all the way--with no commercial interruptions.
Review: There's not much danger here, this novel never does give the pair a worthy foe. There is little in the way of action, but there are some very good Chiun/Remo scenes. In particular, the bit where Remo is trapped in a burning building is exciting, and Chiun helps to free him by talking him through it with some kind of telepathy.
