The Destruction Committee

The Destruction Committee

(1971)
A novel by

 
The time of crisis is now...

With a popular, re-elected President now dying in hospital, it seems inevitable that the Vice President, Carlyn Foreman, will take office.

Yet Foreman is both unelected and unpopular.

Some say he and his cronies are almost communist - Russian sympathisers, perhaps?

Almost everybody around him believes him to be a repellent human being and fundamentally unfit for office.

But can Foreman be stopped and should he be stopped?

In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, few Americans have an appetite for conflict, but there is an exception: The Destruction Committee.

Forged in the theatre of war, the Destruction Committee comprises top-grade soldiers, men who know how to kill quickly, efficiently, ruthlessly and without being caught.

Operating well outside the law, the Destruction Committee nonetheless declares itself dedicated to the greater good and minimal damage.

When it comes to those it deems a threat to society, however, The Destruction Committee kills without mercy.

And The Destruction Committee believes that Carlyn Foreman is a threat.

The Destruction Committee is a classic thriller that touches upon the nature of American politics, the psychological effects of war and death, and the allocation of political power.
