San Francisco is the most photogenic city in America, with rolling hills, clanging trolleys, and all the charm that Northern California has to offer. But it is also the nation’s pornography capital, and for that it has drawn the attention of Mack Bolan, the Executioner, whose one-man war against the Mafia grows more merciless with every battle.
He reopens the fight at a nightclub, launching a satchel of high explosives into a meeting of local mobsters. Just before it detonates, he notices a delicate young beauty walking into the club. He yanks her away from the blast, delaying his own escape and bringing the full firepower of the San Francisco mob down onto himself. She offers him a way out, but will it lead to safety—or an ambush? Either way, the Executioner will be ready.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
With several fully equipped foreign black ops groups tracking his every move and willing to die for their cause, Bolan is running out of time, ammunition and options. He has only one choice—turn the war back on the terrorists. A single American citizen may hold the key to military superiority, but there is only one soldier who can defend it—the Executioner.
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.
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.
A notorious assassin is captured before receiving the ultimate hit list from a major crime family. To protect the targets, Stony Man Farm sends Mack Bolan to infiltrate the family's compound and secure the list. This time, Bolan has an extra weapon in his arsenal: he's a dead ringer for the assassin. His impersonation is successful…until the escaped killer arrives on the scene. Suddenly, the race is on for Bolan to reach the targets before the assassin or his mercenaries can murder them—or Bolan himself. Yet despite the stolen identity, there will be no mistaking the Executioner's signature blaze of hellfire and justice.
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The search for a missing virologist leads Mack Bolan to a cult with a horrifi c agenda. An order of monks has emerged as a new force of unprecedented terror. Legend has it that the centuries-old brotherhood was the mastermind of the Black Death. Reborn as a fully modern paramilitary organization with cells across the globe, the order is ready to unleash a new plague upon the world.
With ritualistic precision, forty couriers of death will be deployed to major cities. Bolan's race to stop the unthinkable takes him from the U.S. to Australia. The Executioner must fi nd the source before a designer disease with its roots in history's darkest nightmare causes untold human suffering.
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 deadliest, most organized threat ever to homeland security is situated in America's own backyard. A violent, militant arm of a neo-Nazi group has forged an unholy alliance with Palestinian terrorists to bring about a mutual goal. They want to generate panic, chaos and bloodshed on America's streets.
With limited intelligence available and even less time, Mack Bolan works down a hit list of strikes planned by both groups—at home and abroad. The attacks are intended to destabilize America's military, legal and government institutions, and light the fuse for the fi nal act of terror against the heart of U.S. political power. The Executioner's urgent directive comes straight from the President: do anything to stop this—and do it now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In the jungles of Southeast Asia, no sniper was more ruthless than Mack Bolan. After twelve years in-country, with ninety-five confirmed kills, the Special Forces sergeant returns 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 a gang of 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 . . .
Now in one volume, these are the first three action-packed novels in the long-running series that has sold more than 200 million copies.

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 a paid assassin starts killing innocent people, it's time to take him out. But while eliminating one killer, Mack Bolan stumbles onto a deadly drug pipeline that takes him deep into the Australian Outback—and into the heart of the Asian mob.
To destroy the enemy Bolan must protect the one thing standing in the Triad's way—a young Aboriginal girl. With the Triad and a highly trained covert team—funded by the dead assassin's partner—tracking him, the Executioner is caught in a lethal cross fi re. To survive, he'll have to use skills he never knew he had.
Pink. Orange. White. Indigo. In the ruthless and unforgiving world of mercenaries, these are the code names of an elite group of assassins, known collectively as the Black Cross. They leave behind no DNA, no evidence at all—and until they were recruited by the shadowy group, they were the best and deadliest operatives working for the U.S. government.
When someone begins targeting retired American servicemen—CIA, navy and marines—Stony Man decides to send Black Cross a new recruit: Mack Bolan. Bolan must infiltrate the cell of skilled assassins, taking the entire organization apart, body by body. And he'll do it the only way he knows how…Executioner style.
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.
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.
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.…
For decades the St. Louis mob has been happily small time—raking in profits without making waves. But after Mack Bolan’s one-man war against the Mafia shatters organized crime in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, ambitious East Coast gangsters start coming to St. Louis, where they plan to push aside the softhearted old capo and turn the Gateway to the West into the kind of criminal paradise not seen since the glory days of Al Capone. They’ll start by corrupting the statehouse.
One of the candidates for Missouri governor has a wife with a salacious past, which the mob promises to keep secret in return for full support once the candidate wins office. The frightened politician’s only hope is the man in black: Mack Bolan, the crack sniper known as the Executioner, who will make St. Louis safe for law and order no matter the
Far from the lights of the city, in the desert near the Mexican border, the mob has erected a sprawling compound where planes can land undetected. This will be the heart of the Arizona corridor—a drug-smuggling route that will dwarf even the infamous French connection. And Mack Bolan will kill to keep the operation off the ground.
Wearing a black jumpsuit, his belt full of ammunition, the Executioner plans to make Arizona the new front in his war against organized crime. He has spent days cataloging the Mafia heavies who come and go from the compound in the desert, and now he is ready to strike. Two mob factions are working together in Arizona—and Mack Bolan will ensure that they destroy each other.
On a moonlit Cleveland dock, Mack Bolan watches the flagship of the local boss’s criminal fleet. It would be child’s play to storm aboard and kill the capo, but this boss is strictly small time. Bolan wants the big boys—and he is about to get his shot at them. Toward the ship come two figures dragging an aging prisoner who makes no attempt at escape. Bolan breaks his stakeout to save the old man. He is a judge—and he’s minutes from cardiac arrest.
As they rush to the hospital, the judge whispers to Bolan about a kidnapped girl whose time is running out. As he fights to save the girl and bring down the Cleveland mob, Bolan discovers something he never thought he would find: a woman who might steal his heart.
Yesterday Mack Bolan was in Louisville, dismantling the midwestern crime syndicate drop by bloody drop. The next stop on his six-day rampage is California, where ambitious gangsters have pooled their resources to form a last-ditch coalition known as the California Concept. The Executioner arrives on Tuesday. His intent is to have destroyed the criminal empire by Wednesday.
Bolan starts his battle by rescuing the daughter of a midlevel boss and using her father’s influence to get close to the local mob. The criminal syndicate of California is far healthier than he realized, and its leaders are on the verge of pioneering a high-tech brand of organized crime that could upend life across the United States. It would take the police years to unravel this conspiracy, but Bolan has no time to waste. The killing starts now.
After dozens of battles and an untold body count, Mack Bolan thought his one-man war against the Mafia was coming to an end. He planned a final week of mop-up work, clearing out mob infestations wherever they were the thickest before joining up with the US government and leaving his old life behind. But as any exterminator knows, some pests are harder to get rid of than others—and the Mafia is tougher than any cockroach.
Bolan is on his way to Texas when he is forced to make a detour in New Mexico to take out a sadistic doctor who has been performing gruesome experiments on disloyal Mafia soldiers. In the high desert country near Santa Fe, he discovers a mob plot that rivals anything he’s ever seen. The war for the American underworld is about to reach an atomic level of destruction.
In a Pittsfield cemetery Mack Bolan looks down at his family plot. A space has been left for him, but Bolan is not yet ready to die. His war against the Mafia has taken him around the globe, and now he is back where it all began—not to avenge his family, but to save a friend. Undercover cop Leo Turrin has spent years climbing the ranks of organized crime, risking his life and his family to help put mobsters behind bars. Now the mobsters are about to strike back.
The local kingpin suspects a rat in his ranks and is close to sniffing out Leo. To save his friend’s life, Mack asks him to sit tight so he can shore up Leo’s cover story the only way he knows how: with a gun.
The last great kingpin of the East Coast, Augie Marinello walled himself up in a Long Island fortress protected by stone walls, guard towers, and a pack of Dobermans trained to kill on command. But no fence in the world is high enough to keep out Mack Bolan, the one-man army whose crusade against the Mafia has brought organized crime to its knees. When the Executioner decided it was time for Augie to die, he died, and now another man has stepped into his place: David Eritrea, who has the potential to be far more dangerous than Augie ever was.
Eritrea has dreams of rebuilding Augie’s empire bigger than before and reuniting the five families of New York under a single leader: himself. Unfortunately for the would-be don, the Executioner has other plans.
Mack Bolan has spent a lifetime crisscrossing the country, taking the Mafia apart piece by piece. Occasionally, this solitary crusader has found allies—strong-willed fighters who hate the Mafia just as much as he does but who prefer to do battle inside the law. Lately, several of them have joined up with the Sensitive Operations Group, a top-secret task force devoted to unconventional crime fighting. Bolan never considered joining the team, but when two of his oldest friends are captured by the mob, the Executioner will fight alongside Uncle Sam to get them back.
Carl Lyons and Smiley Dublin were last seen in Nashville, the country music capital and stronghold for the Dixie Mafia. In Music City, Bolan will teach the mob to play a different tune—a song of mayhem, violence, destruction and death.
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.
Bobby Cassiopea is one of the new breed of American mobsters: a stylish jet setter whose high-finance reputation hides a corrupt criminal soul. It is on the backs of slick young men like Bobby Cass that the Mafia hopes to escape its thuggish reputation and move into the upper crust of international crime.
The war for Acapulco has begun. In this nexus of jet-set style and global drug trafficking, the Mafia grows like a cancer. Bolan has come to cut it out.
