Project Omega is a plan put into effect 20 years earlier to cripple Russia, by assassinating as many top level government officials as possible, should we ever lose a war to them. The new head of the CIA is cutting spending, and cancels Project Omega without researching what it is, inadvertently setting the plan into motion. Remo and Chiun are called in to protect the Russian Premier after several Russian officials are killed.

A very enjoyable spy novel with some great scenes between Chiun and R

"This is a .22 caliber Ruger semi-automatic, the weakest handgun in the world," Ruby said. "The cartridges are five years old and the gun may be rusty. Even if I hit you right between the eyes, I might not be able to stop you. Now what you have to ask yourself is, do you think I’ll get lucky?"

That's probably the best line in this relatively average Remo book. Having read a few of these back-to-back, however, I feel a strange urge to read something different for a change.

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. The team must stop the CIA from starting a world war by killing Soviet agents. Recommended

If television had never been invented, the souls of every tree would cry out with the voice of this kind of crap. Either that, or if it weren't for television, this kind of crap might have never been written.

A little less action in this tale compared to the others, but it was an ok read nonetheless.
