Several IRS agents have died mysteriously. Remo is sent to protect the next likely target, who dies in a hospital where the doctors can be paid to assassinate patients. Remo and Chiun are sent to the hospital to sort things out.

A lot of good stuff in this one.

Favorite tidbits: Instead of Christmas we have “The Merry Feast of the Pig.” Chiun makes Remo a Christmas tree from an uprooted shrub by hanging two tennis balls, a popped golf ball, a slice of apple, and one yellow light bulb from it. Chiu

First of all, I would expect Smitty to be a little more grateful after what he went through in the previous book. Instead, he's back to being the ornery curmudgeon that we've grown to love.

While I enjoyed the plot of a doctor doing murder for hire, I rather doubt it took the supercomputers of CURE to figure it out.

Chiun is at his best, curing people of their ailments with Sinanju, and tearing the ears off a ne'er-do-well. Remo's just Remo, and that's the biz, sweetheart.

I finished this book some time ago and just got around to writing a review. I love these books!! Yes they are a bit corny but lots of fun. Still looking to complete my collection of them. They are hard to find even on eBay. But I like the challenge. Have an afternoon to blow, pick up a Remo Williams book. They aren't big and very quick reads. Have fun with them.

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 issue is the first appearance of the evil Dr Hahl.

I love these Remo Williams books. Remo gets in trouble with Smith because he kills to many people. Then Remo has to try a different approach and yet people still die. Surprise!
