Description

DARDO is the third book in a four book series on the fictional tale of two men: Max Dardo and Razzor Sharpe. Razzor is an extremely brilliant mathematician, (the scholar), whereas Dardo is a strange smart physicist, (the terrorist). Both men attend Princeton University and select a very difficult course in quantum cosmology, where they first meet, Razzor learns that Dardo is not only an undergraduate student, but is also the C.I.A.'s top assassin. Dardo learns that Razzor is the originator of a TOP SECRET design for a soundless, undetectable, and highly maneuverable sub whose shape and fins are identical to a giant Manta sting ray. The Russians want to steal the plans, and were able to place one of their best spies into the US Navy's test facility. But first, Dardo is enthralled with Whinky Balls that threatens to eliminate all life on earth. Dardo has been wanted dead or alive by almost every country in the World. Dardo realizes he must change his appearance by having the best Plastic Surgeon remove every identifiable physical feature from his body, and replace it with totaling different features. Dardo changed his name to Stallings, attended a Saint Timothy Catholic School to become a Roman Catholic Priest. While in school he excelled in Particle Physics, teaching others on the Higgs boson, and on the morphology of Whinky Balls. Several students didn't like him, fought him but lost. He was hated by an Italian mobster's son, eventually being killed by Stallings. Dardo was married to an Afghan woman and a very wealthy Russian girl named Priscilla, whom he later kills. He has two daughters and one son, named Blondy, or Baby Face. One daughter later becomes a Nun, and tries to kill Stallings. The other daughter was extraordinarily beautiful. He later kills her. Stallings becomes the US Naval Academy's Catholic Priest and learns his hated enemy Razzor (Sam Buehr) is the Academy's Math Chairman. They collaborate on trying to solve the origin of the Whinky Balls, meet a brilliant physicist Dr. Dirac, who finds what is the composition of the balls. Both Stallings and Razzor work with one of the architects of the Whinky Balls and his son, Dr. Tasi. A student of St. Timothy School, (Larry), hates Stallings, fights and is badly wounded. In retaliation, Larry blows up Tasi's Lab building killing a few. Stallings gets wounded by Tasi's wife as she blames Stallings for the death of her husband. The hunt for Dardo persists. The US President gets involved and his plane runs over Stallings leg after Stallings rescues the President's granddaughter from being hit by the plane. Adventure after adventure follows. The bad Saudis capture Stallings and his son, and are tortured. Episodes occur in Zermat, hospitals, and finally the joint venture of both enemies occurs on a climb on the Swiss mountain Matterhorn, each planning to kill the other. The end of this book is a surprise.
