Several Mafia characters from previous novels make an appearance in this book. One of them recognizes Remo during a plane trip, tracks him down, and takes revenge. This sends Remo and Chiun on a full-scale rampage against the mysterious Raffair. What exactly are the Mafia's plans for Raffair? Who is truely behind it? And WHO are the mysterious assasins attacking Remo at every turn? Are they agents of Raffair or some other group?
This novel takes place during the last week of Clinton's term. It was wild reading it in close to "real time". The author has a field day tearing Bill and Hillary to shreads. For instance: Hillary has trained the first Cat and first Dog to attack Bill whenever they see him. If you love Clinton and have no sense of humor you are going to HATE this book!
All in all, a very enjoyable read. The banter between the Master of Sinanju and the pale piece of pig's ear (Remo) is wonderful. Especially when Chiun discovers the joys of country music. Four out of Five stars.
Will poor ancient Dr. Smith finally be able to retire? And if so will he be going to his final reward or will he be off to Florida with his lovely bride to sip cocktails and complain about Marx Brothers movies? I think not! But still a certain CIA analyst looks set to take over CURE if President Clinton's final scheme works out.
