The second of the long-running Destroyer series; as with the first, I was warned to start reading the series with #3, but I read it anyway. No regrets about that, it's better than the first, but not as good as #3 and 4, which I've read as well by now.

Remo is sent on his own to investigate the strange doings at an ultra-secret US government think tank in rural Northern Virginia. The various scientists are quite a hoot and I feel as though I may have worked with several of them at various times.

Obviously Murphy and Sapir had not yet hit their stride with this one and found quite the right formula yet, but it's not bad. I would say that the recommendation to start with #3 is fair, as this one is relatively forgettable.

If the first book piqued your interest enough that you want to know more about the characters, you are now hooked. Enjoy their world. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0759240809, Paperback)

The big brains behind the business usually have many pots boiling on their stove, or running their think engines as the case may be. But when the business motto of the Brewster forum, "Pursuing Research Into Original Thought", leads them to some eccentric affairs that throw them far enough off track, Remo Williams enlists the help of his Master Chiun to solve a harrowing crime.
