I wanted to enjoy this book as it seemed just the kind of knuckle dragging thriller I enjoy. But Remo is just too perfect a killing machine. His many assailants present practically no challenge for him and he operates with an annoying smugness. His hippy mentor guru is even more annoying. I prefer my heroes to be put through the wringer and lose a fight every now and again. Prevailing against the odds rather than have it all handed to them on a plate. I understand how popular this series was and ...more

"Συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα", εκδόσεις ΒΙΠΕΡ.

Έβδομο βιβλίο της σειράς Εξολοθρευτής, τέταρτο που διαβάζω εγώ. Δεν μου φάνηκε τόσο καλό όσο τα άλλα τρία προηγούμενα βιβλία της σειράς που έχω διαβάσει, αλλά και πάλι ήταν μια ευχάριστη ανάγνωση.

Μια συνδικαλιστική σούπερ ένωση, που θα αποτελείται από τις τέσσερις ενώσεις μεταφορών, είναι έτοιμη να δημιουργηθεί. Στην CURE πιστεύουν ότι κάτι τέτοιο θα ήταν ικανό να παραλύσει το κράτος. Έτσι αναλαμβάνει την υπόθεση ο Ρέμο, μαζί με τον Κορεάτη δάσκαλό του Τσ

One of the big men's adventure series from the 70's than ran an impressive 145 books. The series while an adventure/action story is also full of satire toward much of the mainstream fads and icons of the time. An interesting main character and the sarcastic mentor makes this a funny action/adventure read. This is a key book in the series as it introduces the evil renegade Master Nuihc. Recommended

above average for the series. This is one of my favorites.
Нуич - племянник Чиуна плетет какую-то интригу с профсоюзами. Римо всех мочит как всегда. Нуич исчезает, но, видимо, вернется.
Nuihc, #1

A transportation superunion is being planned. Smith is worried that it could cripple the nation. Remo is sent to find out about it and stop the ones responsible. He meets Nuihc, the man behind the superunion, Who almost kills Remo.

Another great book. We get to hear more about the village of Sinanju and some of its history and traditions. The first super villain, Chiun's nephew, an evil Master of Sinanju. Chiun cannot lift a hand against him.

Warning, sex and graphic gory violence.

This is my favorite Remo book so far. I enjoyed the villain because he was new and different. Hopefully I will find more books with Nuihc. Remo almost died. It was a real struggle and I appreciate the drama.

I enjoyed this entry in the series for several reasons. I enjoyed the early 70s look at labor unions, we learned more about Chiun's back story, and how can you not like the Scarlet Ribbons technique?

Read in order, the #6 is one of the best Destroyer books thus far, professing humour, thoughtfulness and action in very nice quota - the recipe of all good Remo books.
James Love
The first appearance of Nuihc. The attempted creation of a Superunion could spell financial ruin for America.
