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.
An Israeli defense contractor has constructed state-of-the-art components for the Valkyrie missile—the closest thing to divine power the world has ever seen. Everybody wants a piece of the action, including rogue elements prepared to kill to control it. A murder trail leads Mack Bolan to Athens, where an assassin gives chase on what becomes a death race across the globe.
The enemy is a wealthy Chinese spymaster, whose scope reaches deep into the covert corners of American defense organizations. Controlling Valkyrie is just the beginning of a master conspiracy to buy out the safety of the free world. With Stony Man Farm putting everything it's got behind him, the Executioner hunts down a mastermind with unlimited resources and the ruthlessness to hijack world peace.
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.
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.
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 ruthless Colombian drug lord has launched a deadly campaign targeting DEA agents and U.S. diplomats. With the body count growing and the American government powerless, Mack Bolan is called in as a last resort to infiltrate the criminal syndicate and destroy the chain of command before more innocent blood is shed.
As the number of attacks grows, Bolan knows he must shut down the operation quickly. But the cartel's ruthless expansion plan is well under way, and surrendering is not an option. Backed up by a group of right-wing terrorists, the cartel's leader has declared war on any organization—or man—that stands in his way. There's just one flaw in the plan…no one expected the Executioner.
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 undertakes a rapid-deployment rescue operation in West Africa, where a C.I.A. asset possessing crucial U.S. intelligence is trapped and dying. For years, the agent has played the counterintelligence game for profit. Now, holed up in a grimy hotel in the middle of a bloodbath, her last hope is making his way to her across the civil war-torn Ivory Coast.
Bolan's point of insertion is the center of hell, where monsoon rains and wholesale slaughter conspire to shorten his mission and his life. Warlords, mercenaries and local police collide in genocidal fury, leaving the Executioner little choice in his punishing assault. He cuts a swathe of fury and retribution to his target, prepared to die but never to quit.
Wiped out a century ago in India, the ancient Cult of Kali has been reborn. Organized, well-funded and with clandestine contacts in high places, these death worshippers have an agenda of serious destruction, backed by three stolen nuclear warheads from Pakistan.
Mack Bolan heads a covert U.S. probe to the subcontinent and uncovers a situation that borders on the supernatural: an army of invisible soldiers who kill swiftly and silently, at once unstoppable and unseen. But Bolan deals in facts, not fiction—and the high-tech secrets behind the mysterious cult of killers lead to a hardcore shakedown in the heart of Calcutta, where true evil awaits….
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.
