Death Check
by Richard Sapir and Warren Murphy
His name was Remo and the gymnasium was dark with only speckles of light coming from the ceiling-high windows where minute paint bubble had burst shortly after workmen had applied the first layer of black.

The Brewster Forum, one of America's think-tanks, an innocent-appearing collection of intellectuals and scientists involved in super-cerebral research projects. One of their more interesting secret studies is the drafting of a game-plan to control the world.

CURE, the agency that doesn't exist. They assign their man who doesn't exist--the Destroyer--to scramble the Brewster plan, or to eliminate the think-tank that thought too much.

Review: Sapir and Murphy continue to play with the mixture of characters and other elements, searching for that elusive something. This novel was a step in the wrong direction. Remo is even more like a "James Bond" superagent; Chiun is nowhere to be seen (except in flashback); and the story is full of cliched elements. A generally lackluster Destroyer novel. Don't worry, they get better...
