His name was Remo, and he was taking the elevator up--from beneath.
A Little Old Lady...
She started the whole damn thing. By dying. Like many other elderly people trying to exist on meager allowance in old neighborhoods that have turned into ghettos, she was the victim of a mugging. Certainly nothing new in the daily events of a run-down, doped-up slum.
That her brutal beating caused her death added but little significance to the crime statistics that week. Just another old lady mugged. Happens all the time.
Except that this time Remo Williams was in a terribly mood when he read the news of her death. Which meant that he and Chiun were on their way to New York to wipe out a few murderous muggers.
Very simple. Very noble.
Civilization, Truth, and Justice take a break while two men go to work in the streets of New York. But, like most adventures of the Destroyer, complications set in...
You wouldn't believe the complications...until now, in this, the thirtieth episode of the master assassins of Sinanju.
Review: Boy, about half-way through this story, I decided that it was the worst, most racist piece of trash I had ever read. By the end, I was sure that it was the best bit of social satire I had ever seen, and felt that it should be required reading in all high schools.
Love it or hate it, you'll feel something for Mugger's Blood. I felt it was worth .
