Slightly better than its predecessor, Dangerous Games is still part of a weaker phase in the series. A very straight-forward story with the usual twists and turns. Unfortunately, the series seems to suffer from the absence of Sapir and even Remo's and Chiun's skills seem to change from book to book to serve the story. Not a must read at all and the same is true for the series until book 44.

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. Threats have been made against the athletes at the Moscow Olympics and CURE must protect them.

Yeah, most Destroyer books are formulaic to some extent, but that predictability is part of their charm. from Chiun's attempts to acquire fans and fortune to his bickering with Remo and trying to apply as much guilt as possible to Remo and even a love interest for Remo. It's predictable but always a fun read and satirical commentary on political events of the time. Never disappointed.
