In the jungles of Southeast Asia, no sniper was more ruthless than Mack Bolan. After twelve years in-country, with ninety-five confirmed kills, he returns home to the United States only to find that his father has gone berserk, slaughtering his family before taking his own life. But Bolan knows his old man was no killer: He was under pressure from Mafia thugs who were after his money—and willing to destroy his life to get it. For the sake of his father, Bolan declares war on the men who drove him mad . . .
Five loan sharks are getting into their car when a bullet slams one of them to the ground. Before the others can draw their guns, four more shots ring out, leaving them the first casualties in the Executioner’s war. From his hometown to every city in America, Mack Bolan will deliver justice from the barrel of a gun.
Formed in the wake of World War I, a renegade secret society has never lost sight of its goal to eradicate the "lesser races" and restore a mythical paradise. This nightmare scenario becomes a terrifying possibility when the society discovers an ancient virus hidden in a Cold War–era military installation. Called in to avert the looming apocalypse, Mack Bolan must stop the white supremacists by any means necessary.
Bolan tracks the group to Alaska, enduring the harsh arctic conditions while dodging highly trained killers. But the clock is ticking down, and Bolan will need all his skills and resourcefulness to eliminate this threat. All that stands between millions of people and a sure death is one man. The Executioner.
While staking out Mafia activity at Dulles airport, the one-man army known as Mack Bolan gets caught in an ambush. He shoots his way past the first wave of mob guards, escaping onto the tarmac. As a cordon of police close in on the most wanted man in America, he is forced to fly or die. He chooses the former—hopping a ride on an airliner headed for France, where he will do battle with the most savage villains the Old World has to offer.
On the flight he encounters a celebrity who could be his double—and who is kidnapped by the Paris mob as soon as he steps off the plane. To rescue this unsuspecting innocent, Bolan will bring the Paris underworld to its knees. He may not speak French, but he is fluent in the universal language of the gun.
When Mafia pressure destroyed his family, sniper Mack Bolan declared war on organized crime. The Battle of Pittsfield left dozens of mobsters dead, but that was only the beginning. Hunted by the police, the FBI, and every hood in America, Bolan plans his next attack. In Los Angeles, he crashes a swinger party and finds his old army buddy, George Zitka, tied to a chair, being tortured by a few mob heavies. Seconds later they’re dead, and Bolan and Zit are talking about getting the old gang back together. It’s time to form a death squad.
Bolan wants ten soldiers forged in the fires of Vietnam: sharpshooters and scouts, demo experts and hard-core killers. With them he’ll escalate the war against the Mafia as the Death Squad lives up to its name.
Of the ten members of Mack Bolan’s death squad formed to take his war against the Mafia to a bloody new level, seven are dead and two are in jail. Only Bolan, the crack sniper known as the Executioner, remains. There’s a $100,000 bounty on his head, and every cop in Los Angeles is on his tail. After narrowly escaping a mob assault on his hideout, Bolan decides to lose his greatest liability: his face.
With the help of a former army surgeon, Bolan’s chiseled jaw and steely eyes are transformed into the features of someone unrecognizable—and decidedly Sicilian. With trademark cunning, Bolan infiltrates the syndicate that butchered his friends, cozying up to the boss’s daughter in search of vengeance. Soon, his new face, like the one before it, will strike terror into the hearts of mafiosi everywhere.
In a sophisticated undercover operation that spans the borderlands and urban battlefields of Iraq, Pakistan and India, Bolan and a handful of operatives attempt to do the impossible: find and terminate the revitalized Islamic murder cult. Reborn from an ancient sect, the group merges ancient terror with modern technology. As dealers of death for the hard line ruling Mullahs, the Council of Assassins plots a new global caliphate…with a calculated first strike aimed at the heart of the United States.
When he began his one-man assault on the Mafia, ex–army sniper Mack Bolan imagined it as a war of attrition. Kill enough button men and underbosses, made guys and capos, and the international crime syndicate would finally collapse. But when he learned that the Mafia was planning a full-scale takeover of the US government, the Executioner realized attrition would not be enough. The Mafia must be destroyed, and the place to do it is Chicago.
The battle for Chicago starts with a single shot when Bolan pulls the trigger and ends the life of underboss Louis Aurielli. In a city where every politician, businessman, and cop is on the mob payroll, he will have nowhere to hide. But that’s okay with Bolan—sometimes it’s better to fight in the open.
As his war against the Mafia has carried him across the United States, Mack Bolan has begun to hear rumors that the mob is planning something big. They call it la Cosa di tutti Cosi—a fiendish plan to use the combined might of organized crime to infiltrate the US government and take it down from the inside. Over the last weeks, politicians, lobbyists, and civil servants have died suspicious deaths, paving the way for a new set of laws that will let the secret Mafia government step out of the shadows. When it does, the Executioner will be waiting.
Bolan is no flag waver, but he has watched too many good men die for their country to let America go down without a fight. To save the States from its corrupt politicians, Bolan makes landing on the shores of the Potomac—to erect a monument in blood.
When the Pittsfield Mafia destroyed Mack Bolan’s family, the only survivor was his brother Johnny—a wide-eyed teen not prepared for life on the front lines of a war against the mob. Before he began his assault on organized crime, Mack sent Johnny into hiding along with Mack’s fiancée, Val. Now they’ve been kidnapped by an enterprising thug who thinks he can use the Executioner’s family against him. The Boston mob will pay for his mistake.
The city’s Mafia has splintered into factions, and Bolan is about to blow them wide open. He starts by marching into a few mob hangouts, killing the man in charge and demanding his brother back. When he learns that Johnny and Val might be dead, he loses it completely. When he’s being cautious, the Executioner is the deadliest man in America. Angry, he’s more trouble than an atomic bomb.
San Diego has one of the finest harbors in the world, easy access to Mexico, and more federal dollars than anywhere else in the country. This combination has made it irresistible to the mob, which runs the city from top to bottom. In his one-man war against organized crime, Mack Bolan has never considered targeting San Diego. The city is too sick to save.
Mack’s old commander from Vietnam is in trouble with the San Diego syndicate, and only the Executioner can save him. Once, Mack would have given anything for Howlin’ Harlan Winters, but he’s not sure he can trust him anymore. Taking down the San Diego mob will require a different kind of battle—a silent infiltration and a surgical assault. To back himself up, Bolan recruits the two surviving members of his long-disbanded Death Squad. If San Diego cannot be saved, it will have to be destroyed.
A rash of killings among returning American soldiers puts Mack Bolan on the front line of a conspiracy to destabilize the U.S. military at home and abroad. His Russian-born, American-made enemy has infiltrated and co-opted the country's largest radical peace organization, spurring waves of antiwar protests and turning members into mercenaries willing to use violence against veterans of the Middle East conflicts. Media mogul Yuri Trofimov has the power and influence to deliver a propaganda campaign via television straight into America's living room—and enough money to buy hired guns and the cooperation of a corrupt congressman. Despite the sensitive nature of the crisis and the determination of the U.S. government to stop the atrocities, Bolan's doing what a dedicated warrior does best: search and destroy.
The plane comes in low, dropping its sole passenger on the edge of the oilfield known as Klingman’s Wells. Wearing all black, his chest crisscrossed with ammunition, Mack Bolan begins his assault on the facility. With his two favorite pistols and a handful of grenades, he cripples this mob-run drilling site, causing enough chaos to allow him to escape unharmed—and rescue the kidnapped woman who is trapped inside.
Bolan’s one-man war against organized crime has hamstrung the mob’s gambling operations and stopped its corruption of Washington. Desperate for funds, the syndicate has infiltrated the Texas oil industry, starting with Klingman’s Wells. To save the Lone Star State from mob rule, the Executioner hits one Mafia stronghold after another in a tornado of destruction that is appropriately Texas size.
Bolan brings hell to Honduras, smashing the pipeline and blitzing through the shock troops spreading waves of terror across Central America. Gaining and keeping the battlefield momentum is Bolan's stock in trade. But the end game means neutralizing a violent incursion onto U.S. soil and toppling two brutal regimes by any and all means necessary.
While fleeing dirty cops who want to silence him, the police officer is nearly hit by Bolan's SUV. The desperate detective is shot and collapses. Bolan rescues the injured man and takes up his fight. But the killers are relentless and the warrior may be too late to save the two people who can tell him where the evidence has been hidden: the officer's wife and young son. Fired on at each turn and with the body count growing, the Executioner knows he must stop the corruption at the source—before more innocent lives are lost.
Mack Bolan bombs down the Jersey Turnpike in a stolen Mustang, a bullet lodged in his ribs and blood seeping down his leg. A dragnet is closing in on the Executioner, whose one-man war against the Mafia has crippled the international crime syndicate but has not yet destroyed it. To evade the roadblocks, he turns onto a lonely two-lane highway when he sees a car full of killers coming up behind him.
Bolan only has three bullets, so he lures the hit men into a car wreck, killing them but sacrificing the Mustang. On foot, he limps into the Jersey night. This is the most corrupt state in the union—the place where mob bosses come to retire in tacky little towns whose police are proud to be on the Mafia payroll. The Executioner is alone, unarmed, and hunted by every killer in the state. But that’s his comfort zone.
Ever since he began his one-man war against the Mafia, Mack Bolan has dreaded the day he would take on Detroit. The driving engine of the American economy, Detroit is run by the most stable mob outfit in the country. In other cities the Executioner has played different factions of organized crime against one another, letting them do his bloody work for him. But Detroit is a dictatorship of crime, and the only way to bring it down will be to slip in beneath the radar.
While preparing to infiltrate, Bolan encounters Toby Ranger, a beautiful undercover operative who has done him favors in the past. One of her “Ranger Girls” is missing, kidnapped by the grisliest villain in organized crime. When Bolan’s war against the city turns personal, Detroit is going to pay.
Bolan comes face-to-face with pure evil when he gets caught in the cross fire between a rogue army general hungry for power and a ruthless multinational corporation plotting to reap billions from the blood of the innocent. But the Executioner is ready to lay his trap as he heads deep into the bush to stalk the deadliest predator of all—man.
Infiltrating a Dutch human trafficking organization turns deadly when two undercover agents are tortured and shot. Protected by a complex infrastructure and ruthless lawyers, the businessmen behind the crime are untouchable under international law. But Mack Bolan isn't about to play by their rules.
Entering Holland alone, Bolan heads to Rotterdam where he is prepared to seek out his target and destroy the corrupt organization piece by piece. The leaders of the group think they are invincible, but with the lives of women and children at stake, they are about to learn what it's like to be hunted by the Executioner.
Mack Bolan escapes England unhurt but unarmed, praying for a quiet homecoming. This ex–Vietnam sniper, whose war against the Mafia has taken him around the globe, should have known better. Four mob heavies surround him as he gets off the plane, but it only takes a moment for the man known as the Executioner to take one of their guns as his own. He fights his way to the helipad and lifts off on a short trip to Midtown. The skies are quiet, but the mob will be waiting when he lands.
Injured in his escape, Bolan takes refuge with a trio of kind young women, who nurse him back to health as he discovers a Mafia conspiracy to take control of the nation’s government. His European vacation is over, and it’s time for the Executioner to go to work.
Mack Bolan knows he escaped France too easily. When the Calais ferry arrives in Dover, he steps onto the dock expecting a trap. The quiet port fills with gunfire, and he is on the verge of being overrun when a sports car pulls up beside him, and a woman tells him to jump in. The United Kingdom is in danger, and she believes that only Bolan can save it. As thanks for the rescue the man known as the Executioner will bring his unique brand of justice to the underworld of Great Britain.
He fought his way into England, and he will have to fight his way out. Battling a bizarre, perverse conspiracy, he is shocked when the Mafia does the unthinkable—and asks the Executioner to join its side.
U.S. intelligence agents become aware of a wealthy American's plans only when they intercept the chatter of Chinese spies. It is the billionaire's intention to lead a secret archaeological expedition into the mountainous border triangle between Afghanistan, China and Tajikistan. Mack Bolan is inserted within the group as they head into an area that is a hotbed of opium production.
Traveling undercover with a group of foreign mercenaries hired to act as private security, Bolan knows that priceless treasure isn't the only thing hidden in the mountains of Tajikistan. And when they come under attack by Russian fighter jets, it becomes apparent to the Executioner that the unstable region is about to blow.
Under the radar, the first drones launch with the intent to cripple China's own retaliatory capabilities. Mack Bolan infiltrates the conspiracy in Hong Kong, fighting the odds and the convergence of hostiles in a defensive sweep that includes PLA soldiers, Red Star guards and Chinese Intelligence. Bolan's on a mission to terminate with extreme prejudice while, unchecked, the drones wait patiently for orders to release their deadly cargo of nuclear bombs around the world.…
Mack Bolan stands at the lip of Puowaina, the Hawaiian war cemetery, and pays tribute to the friends he lost in Vietnam. Since he left the jungle, this crack sniper has been fighting a different war—an endless battle against organized crime that he knows will someday end in his death. He is in Hawaii on a mission, and that mission is murder.
He starts by firing a series of sniper rounds into the palatial apartment of the Hawaiian heroin king. As Bolan watches the local mob try to pick up the pieces, he begins hearing rumors of another capo: the mysterious King Fire. There is a conspiracy lurking beneath the surface of this beautiful chain of islands—a fiendish plot that stretches to the farthest reaches of the Pacific.
A twenty-seven-foot motor home cruises out of Denver and onto a barren Colorado highway. This is no ordinary RV—it is a warwagon, a high-tech mobile death machine, and with Mack Bolan at its wheel it is the deadliest weapon on earth. The Executioner has won many battles in his one-man war against the Mafia, but in the frozen wastes of Colorado, he will face his most dangerous mission of all.
Led by a hardened veteran who’s as much of a tactical genius as Bolan, the kingpins of organized crime have put together a paramilitary outfit whose sole goal is to execute the Executioner. Colorado is a long way from Vietnam, but Bolan is about to find himself right back in the killing fields.
The plane comes in low over the Puerto Rican resort, getting Mack Bolan close enough to notice snipers in the hotel windows and shotguns in the cabanas. He escaped his latest battle against the Mafia by fleeing to the Caribbean, but the tentacles of the mob stretch everywhere, and they are waiting for him to land. He rigs the plane for a collision course with the resort, bailing out just before impact and escaping into the jungle. He has only thirty bullets, and there are more than a hundred Mafia soldiers hot on his trail. He likes those odds.
It was in the jungles of Vietnam that Bolan was first dubbed the Executioner, and in the steamy forests of Puerto Rico, he will start a guerrilla war. He is one man against an army—but Mack Bolan is the deadliest man this island has ever seen.
In a grassy field in North Georgia, Mack Bolan pays tribute to the men who died at Chickamauga. For more than a century, the battlefields of the Civil War have been peaceful memorials, but on a lonely stretch of highway outside Atlanta, the one-man army known as the Executioner is about to open a new battle. His target is the Mafia, which has long used the Georgia highways to smuggle cigarettes, whiskey, and stolen electronics. Lately, something far more sinister has been creeping up from the South: heroin, by the truckload. Bolan is here to cut the connection.
To protect the innocent truckers hauling the Mafia goods, Bolan lets them drop their cargo before he destroys it. When the white powder fails to arrive at its destination, the mob comes after Bolan, and the highways of the South become a battleground.
At the home of the mob capo of Arizona, a silhouette slips across the yard, kills two guards with a silenced pistol, and eases inside the house. Mack Bolan, the ruthless sniper known as the Executioner, has come to cleanse Phoenix of Mafia rule, but the boss is not at home. He’s on a plane to Miami, to a meeting of every capo in the country, and his agenda has only one item: destroy the Executioner once and for all.
Bolan had planned to fight his way across the country, taking out branches of the crime syndicate one by one, but the Miami summit presents a chance to destroy the Mafia with one single blow. The leading lights of organized crime are being guarded by the two toughest killers the Executioner has ever faced, and the beaches of the Sunshine State will soon be awash in blood.
A bloodbath aboard a celebrity-packed yacht leaves the daughter of a high-ranking politician dead. Going undercover as a DEA official, Mack Bolan probes what appears to be a drug deal gone bad. But as kilos of high-grade heroin flood Los Angeles, Bolan's investigation exposes something worse than business as usual for local gangs and dirty politicians.
The trail leads to Jakarta and the Golden Dragon, a drug lord with his hands in the pockets of officials--and an agenda that goes beyond white powder and cold hard cash. The Executioner hammers the opposition with a vengeance, savaging the Dragon's stranglehold on the drug trade... and engraging a powerful enemy whose mission stops nothing short of full-blown terror.
Mack Bolan has fifty seconds to cripple the Mafia’s operations in Las Vegas. Fifty seconds to take out ten gunmen, destroy a jeep, and down a helicopter. Fifty seconds to snatch millions of dollars away from the international crime syndicate that he declared war on so long ago. For forty-nine seconds, everything goes fine . . .
The Executioner takes aim at the mob’s biggest casino as he awaits a duel with two of the deadliest hit men the Mafia has to offer.
Ambushed at every turn and a constant target for snipers, Bolan knows that flushing out the enemy won't be easy—especially when everyone is a suspect. With millions of lives and the fate of Cameroon's government at stake, he's determined to stop the fight before more blood is shed.
With no one to trust, the Executioner knows there's only one way to beat the killers at their game: destroy them before they destroy you.
Bolan has seen enough evil in the world to know monsters exist-but in his experience they are all too human, preying on the innocent and the weak. And he is determined that whoever or whatever is behind the biggest coup of Mexico's drug trade will face his retribution.
Leaving behind a trail of blood in the heart of Columbia's cartel country, Mack Bolan arrives in Kuala Lumpur to target a gangster's nightclub, the secret center of a looming cyberattack on U.S. and Chinese banks. What appears to be a greed-motivated counterfeit ring is actually a conspiracy to ignite a global economic crisis. Bolan must figure out who stands to gain and trace the destruction back to its source. Then take the leader down.
This much Bolan knows: the enemy is powerful, intelligent and well armed. Putting everything he's got into tracking the mastermind takes him to the Soviet Union in the dead of winter, where he finds a Russian power broker gunning to rebuild his beloved country into a glorious superpower. Bolan has only one response and he calls it "scorched earth."
With the free world in jeopardy, Mack Bolan must stop the rogue agent before the man unleashes his plan. But it's going to take more than weapons to win this battle. Armed with the same deadly skills as Bolan, the misguided killer could be the Executioner's ultimate foe.
When rebels take the students of a Malaysian private school hostage, tensions in the region threaten to explode. In a country filled with unrest and on the verge of civil war, peaceful negotiation is not an option. Mack Bolan is sent in to keep a lid on the uprising and to find a way to free the hostages. Bolan soon discovers that the kidnapping is driven by a powerful ethnic-cleansing group with a deadly political agenda.
With the clock ticking down to a mass genocide, Bolan's mission turns into a death trap. The hostage takers may be prepared to kill anyone who stands in their way, but the Executioner is ready to make the ultimate sacrifice while taking down any who attempt to stop him.
The war in Philadelphia starts in the back of a Mafia-owned garage when a man in combat gear turns his machine pistol on five small-time loan sharks. They don’t even have time to react before Mack Bolan guns them down, in full view of a customer and a mechanic. Before the Executioner departs, he tells the survivors to give the local don a message: It’s over. But the battle for Philadelphia is just beginning.
Bolan’s war against organized crime has brought chaos to cities across the country, and while countless local cops may sympathize with his motives, the federal government has no patience for vigilantes. When Bolan surfaces in Philadelphia, the feds go after him like never before. Since his war began, Mack Bolan has kept his pledge never to kill an honest cop. Before he can escape the city of brotherly love, a federal dragnet will put the Executioner to the test.
America is under attack from within. Using violence and destruction to throw the population into a panic, a group known as The Brethren, and their political masterminds, are orchestrating anarchy, operating above the law. They have allied themselves with foreign terrorist organizations and are planning a strike to make themselves heard, and to spearhead a direct collision with the U.S. Administration. With federal agencies at a standstill, a determined President needs a direct, no-mercy solution, one prepared to deal with the enemy on the enemy's terms. Mack Bolan is ready and willing to declare war. Partnered with Able Team's leader Carl Lyons, Bolan returns fire on a relentless search-and-destroy mission against an organization driven by warped ideology to claim absolute power.
Hidden in the rolling hills outside Washington, D.C., is the hardsite of America's ultra-covert antiterrorist organization, Stony Man. A force of dedicated commandos and cyberwarriors, this elite, handpicked unit effects surgical strikes against the many faces of evil. Their jurisdiction is anywhere trouble takes them. Their duty to serve and protect. Their missions—completely deniable.
It begins with a tactical nuclear explosion in Russia. Evidence points to the Chinese, who claim it's a Russian trick. For Stony Man, it's the start of the ultimate nightmare as the two countries amass firepower and troops. Soon more staggering explosions rock nations around the globe. At the heart of the horror is stolen tech—a nonnuclear Fuel-Air explosive "T-bomb." Cheap, powerful and clean, it's fallen into enemy hands. As cities crumble under its force, the teams track the covert and traitorous factions wreaking havoc in a game of world domination.
American Secret Service agents lie dead along with Colombian police after a raid on a counterfeiting ring turns into a storm of destruction. Stony Man Farm fears something far worse is looming on the horizon—a plot to destabilize the major currencies around the world. Fake money is flooding into both American and Chinese economies, threatening to launch a financial apocalypse. Mack Bolan's hard probe begins in Medellín, where he lays a trail of concentrated hellfire as he pushes to uncover the mystery brokers behind a power play that's put global stability on life support. Wreaking havoc in the cross fire of drug soldiers and Russian mobsters, the Executioner has a financial incentive of his own: collect the Devil's dues…in blood and bullets.
But infiltrating the organization comes with a price, as Bolan is put through a series of tests that challenge not only his moral code but also his life. He'll play the mobsters' games if he has to, but once he's on the inside the Executioner will be the man calling the shots—every last one of them.
On the streets of a democratic Russia, espionage, civil war and Mafiya control dominate a new kind of battlefield. Bolan's mission: locate, extract and deliver a ruthless Russian arms dealer to a transport team ready to take him back to the United States to stand trial.
But the Russian made friends in high places—CIA, FBI, KGB—during his career as both a player and a pawn. With compromising leaks high up in counterintelligence circles, and a hard force of specialized handlers keeping him alive and doing deals with rogue nations, the arms merchant is a hard man to get to, much less take alive. Bolan doesn't get hung up on odds, risk or the roll of the dice. He's focused on a mission gone sour in hostile territory—and his personal commitment to finishing by any means necessary.
Kabul, Afghanistan, remains a front line within a bureaucratic civil war, where spooks, soldiers, fanatics and narcotics collide in profit and death. Added to the mix are rumors of a heroin operation now run by America's largest and most respected private security firm. With no legal remedy on hand, Mack Bolan is dispatched on a scorched-earth mission that threatens to expose more than just hand-holding deep inside the Beltway. With his identity compromised from the start, the Executioner hooks up with a seasoned DEA agent and local informant, blowing out the infrastructure of a massive narco-traffic operation brick by brick, and exposing the long arm of a traitor.
A jungle ambush leaves several Indonesian security forces dead, setting off a political firestorm in the volatile region. When a disgraced former U.S. ambassador emerges as the mastermind behind the attack, Mack Bolan is called in to find the man before the country descends into civil war.
A fugitive informant is Bolan's only lead, and as more bodies turn up along the way, he soon realizes the ambush was only the beginning of a deadly scheme. After spending years in prison, the rogue envoy is determined to exact revenge against the Indonesian government and take what he believes he deserves. But vengeance comes with a price, and the Executioner is ready to make him pay.
Mack Bolan's mission turns into a death race to secure the speeding bomb and rescue the innocent hostages being used as human shields. When—and if—he succeeds, his directive expands to capturing the neo-Nazi leader alive. But Bolan's got a vengeance-hungry rogue FBI agent on his tail, taking aim at anyone standing in the way of his personal vendetta. And when the mission takes to the streets of Houston, Bolan joins a blood pursuit where only the winner survives.
A long anticipated break in intelligence puts Stony Man on a rapid-fire mission to halt a massive terrorist attack in America's heartland. Able Team hits the streets of the Venezuelan capital, hunted by political death squads while working to sever Iran's increasingly powerful narco-pipeline to the States. Across the globe in Basra, Phoenix Force gets betrayed and burned in the hellgrounds—targeted, outnumbered and outgunned with men down. But Stony Man has been to hell and back many times before. They don't intend to fail now.
A defecting Russian intelligence agent's testimony stands to aim heavy artillery at Russian mobsters in America. To silence her, a hunter-killer team of secret police and gangsters engage in hot pursuit. The enemy has the edge: manpower, weapons and homefield advantage. For Bolan, it's a one-way trip on an open road effectively sealed at both ends by death squads. Every mile survived brings them both either closer to freedom...or ultimate doom.
Every day this week, one of the last great Mafia outfits has fallen. All that remains is New York, whose dons no longer believe the one-man army known as Mack Bolan even exists. They will soon find that he is very real—and that their most trusted hit man of all is working on the Executioner’s side.
Ever since his war began, Bolan has known that it would end in death—either for him or for the Mafia itself. Lured by the promise of amnesty into working for the US government, he will make this his final, most incredible mission. One way or another, Mack Bolan is finished—but the Executioner’s war will live forever.
A GAME OF THRONES
A CLASH OF KINGS
A STORM OF SWORDS
A FEAST FOR CROWS
A DANCE WITH DRAGONS
“One of the best series in the history of fantasy.”—Los Angeles Times
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

A GAME OF THRONES
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.
Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

A STORM OF SWORDS
Of the five contenders for power, one is dead, another in disfavor, and still the wars rage as violently as ever, as alliances are made and broken. Joffrey, of House Lannister, sits on the Iron Throne, the uneasy ruler of the land of the Seven Kingdoms. His most bitter rival, Lord Stannis, stands defeated and disgraced, the victim of the jealous sorceress who holds him in her evil thrall. But young Robb, of House Stark, still rules the North from the fortress of Riverrun. Robb plots against his despised Lannister enemies, even as they hold his sister hostage at King’s Landing, the seat of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, making her way across a blood-drenched continent is the exiled queen, Daenerys, mistress of the only three dragons still left in the world. . . .

A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK TWO
In this thrilling sequel to A Game of Thrones, George R. R. Martin has created a work of unsurpassed vision, power, and imagination. A Clash of Kings transports us to a world of revelry and revenge, wizardry and warfare unlike any we have ever experienced.
A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war. It is a tale in which brother plots against brother and the dead rise to walk in the night. Here a princess masquerades as an orphan boy; a knight of the mind prepares a poison for a treacherous sorceress; and wild men descend from the Mountains of the Moon to ravage the countryside. Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory may go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel . . . and the coldest hearts. For when kings clash, the whole land trembles.
“I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda • “He’s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.” —George R. R. Martin • “Rothfuss has real talent.” —Terry Brooks
DAY TWO: THE WISE MAN’S FEAR
“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”
My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.
So begins a tale told from his own point of view—a story unequaled in fantasy literature. Now in The Wise Man’s Fear, Day Two of The Kingkiller Chronicle, Kvothe takes his first steps on the path of the hero and learns how difficult life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.
A FEAST FOR CROWS
It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.
But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.
It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes . . . and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors.
From the Hardcover edition.
