My first and only book that I've read of this series. I thought the movie based on the characters was great when I was a kid.
A shipping magnate coverts his giant oil tanker into a floating home for the United Nations. The ship turns out to be a death trap as the bad guys try to destroy the U.N. and start world war III. Remo and Chiun have quit CURE and been hired to work for Iran. They end up on the ship to protect the Shah. Smitty is there too to do what he can. Problem is, no one knows who the bad guy is.
A great entry into the destroyer series. Remo and Chiun severe ties with CURE and begin to work for Iran or more precisely the Shah of Persia, a proper Emperor as Chiun insisists. The rest of the story is the usual bickering and piling up of bodies, but at least nobody dies over the beautiful dramas.
A pleasant read. A little lower quality than many of the previous books, but an altogether enjoyable romp nonetheless.
Enjoyable. I don't have clear individual memories of it.
