Destroyer 51 Shock Value by Warren Murphy
Remo and Chiun are back to acting like The Destroyer again. An unknown foe who can program people to commit assassinations for him gets his hands on Harold Smith to force him to put his computer skills to use for the bad guys. Smith manages to leave Remo and Chiun one small clue and they use it to go after Smith to rescue him. The bad guys try to stop them and fail—badly. The high point of the novel comes in a nice scene toward the end in which Remo gets an insight into how truly capable his Sinanju-trained body is. Overall, this is standard Destroyer fair, but a truly big step up from the last few books.
