This is definitely a difficult book to review. The satire in the Remo series has always been overblown and politically incorrect. They profess the kind of extreme-conservative world view that can rub a tolerant liberal the wrong way in many occasions. For me (being a liberal), they have still mostly been a fun read even if I do not share the professed values of the authors.

However, Mugger Blood is an extreme case. For the first 70-80 % of the story, it is openly racist towards the blacks in New
Okay, so I'm waffling between one star and two for this one, but I think of some of the stuff I've given two stars, and... yeah. No.

The Destroyer books are pulp, with all that implies. They occasionally mock social issues, and they have been known to make hamburger out of sacred cows. (This is particularly funny to me because I recall being told a story about one of the authors getting annoyed when they swapped writing teams with The Executioner for a bit and one of the things the visiting writi
An elderly German is brutally murdered by gang members; within a short time agents from several different countries start looking into their belongings. Remo is sent to find out what they are looking for. Remo decides not to bother with the mission, and instead sets out to avenge the murdered old lady and make the streets of New York safe again.

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. Remo takes on violent street crime. Recommended

I've read a lot of the Destroyer books but this one stands out as the funniest of the lot. Absolutely hilarious.

This book had some funny moments, but was very non-pc. This one is guaranteed to offend!

The Destroyer series are my "lets kill an hour or two" books. Usually a good laugh. This one is extremely heavy towards the theory that "the liberals are destroying the world".

Fun stuff -- if crude and unforgivably racist.
