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.
Timothy Boyd
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. Overseas tourism is threatened and the team must protect this vital US industry. Recommended

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 pleasant read. A little lower quality than many of the previous books, but an altogether enjoyable romp nonetheless.
