The New Destroyer: Guardian Angel (Destroyer #146)
THE DESTROYER NEVER DIES . . . .
VIVA LA REVOLUCION!
When a dozen border patrol volunteers are murdered in New Mexico, apparent victims of Mexican nationals, Dr. Harold W. Smith of the super-secret agency CURE worries the first salvo in a new border dispute has been fired. His worst fears are realized with the appearance of the charismatic Santa Ana, a uniformed, would-be despot with a silver tongue and a thirst for bloody revolution. General Santa Anna has redrawn the border between the U.S. and Mexico to fit his own twisted version of reality, and thousands of illegal aliens are drawn to his message of liberation. The Southwest is on fire, and as the revolution explodes the entire nation is at risk. It seems the brazen general has planned for every eventuality. Except one... Mostly MIA for the past four years, Remo Williams, CURE's one man enforcement arm, has returned to the U.S. just in time to prevent Armageddon. With his Korean mentor Chiun, the Master of Sinanju, at his side, America just might live to see mañana. But it turns out Santa Anna is not the only threat to The Destroyer. Remo not only must save the United States from civil war, he must square off against the only woman who ever killed him...
Wow. It's back and about time!

After years of suffering through what can only be generously deemed as amateur and uninspired writing with obsession on all things squid, the Destroyer has finally returned to it's roots. Remo, Chiun and Smith out to save the good old USA. The relationship between Remo and Chiun was a cornerstone of the series - the humor, ever evolving father-son bond, and the bickering - is back.
Also back is the bizarre arch-villain the series was so well known for, a returning nemesis and some political incorrectness (I'd like to see more, but in today's even stranger than Destroyer fiction world, the book would probably be burned, or banned, or fed to a squid.)
If you are a Destroyer fan, don't skip this book - it's a truly a rebirth of the series. New to the series? Well, it's the New Destroyer #1, so obviously a great place to start. The book is about the same length as the earlier Destroyers, and can easily be consumed in a single evening (or over a week at stop... read more
His name was Murphy, and he's back to Remo
By R. Dorf
- May 15, 2007
His name was Remo, and Warren Murphy is back to writing him.
As long time fans of the Destroyer series know, Warren Murphy and Dick Sapir created the character. After their partnership amicably broke up, Murphy remained for a while as primary writer, eventually passing on the character to a series of authors of greater and lesser ability. Some, like Will Murray and James Mullaney, met with fan acclaim. Others did not. Now, as of Guardian Angel, Murphy is back, co writing with Mullaney.
So, does he still have it?
The best Destroyers have always been almost as much political and pop culture satires as action novels, with sacred cows on the right and left enthusiastically skewered. Murphy and Mullaney remember that, turning in a plot that takes shots at both sides in the current debate over illegal immigration. Remo faces a worthy but only human foe, a nice change from the recent string of toe-to-toe super-villains, and a fair number of the plot points... read more
