A cadre of violent bank robbers is wreaking havoc in the midwestern states, amassing a small fortune and a large body count. Covered faces, jungle fatigues and foreign accents have everyone--from their victims to the government--thinking an Arab terror cell is to blame. But the appearance of the criminals is deceiving. While tracking them, Mack Bolan discovers he is fighting an enemy nobody wants to suspect--American soldiers.
As the reign of terror escalates, Bolan realizes the group's ultimate objective is to destroy a major American city unless the federal government pays an exorbitant sum. As the deadline approaches, the Executioner decides it's payoff time, handing the traitors the ransom they deserve.
Defending the enemy
It was supposed to be an open-and-shut case against a high-ranking mobster on trial for conspiring to aid Middle Eastern terrorists in a series of brutal attacks against the U.S. But the so-called "last don" of New York City is likely to be acquitted when mercenary hit teams kill every prosecution witness except one.
Gilbert Favor is a retired money mover now living in Costa Rica, and is the government's last hope. Mack Bolan's mission is to track Favor and return him Stateside. But the money-laundering specialist is less than willing to come forward. The gunmen tracking him want silence by way of a bullet. The Executioner must deliver the witness alive, no matter what the cost.
Corruption in the Indonesian government reaches new heights when a top-level official sanctions a thriving piracy ring in the region. The profits are helping to fund a new bioterrorism weapon that will ultimately be used against America. When the U.S. State Department officials who unearthed evidence of the whole scheme disappear, Mack Bolan is sent to find them.
But Bolan is ambushed by a group of commandos at his drop zone in the mountains outside Jakarta. Protecting a covert jungle stronghold, the mercenaries are desperate to keep the true extent of their activities hidden. A team of assassins is lying in wait and the Executioner must stop them with a hit of his own.
National security missions requiring stealth, speed and direct action bring Stony Man into play. With a mandate to get the job done, this seasoned strike force is backed by a brilliant cybernetics team equipped to take real-time intelligence to the battlefield. At presidential command, Stony Man is armed and ready to fight back against tyranny and terror.
An international crime ring rooted in China's underbelly is distributing raw materials for weapons of mass destruction. To halt the pipeline's uranium-smuggling operation, Phoenix Force is deployed to the Congo, while Able Team moves through the streets of Nicaragua, going up against cartels, corrupt officials and the Armenian mafia. Severely battered by calculated counterstrikes, Stony Man suffers casualties in an escalating battle to halt the sale of nuclear material, which is fast becoming a personal race against death....
Aim And Fire
A nuclear bomb has gone missing. At the same time Room 59, a covert unit of the International Intelligence Agency created to fight terrorist cells, intercepts a communiqu? from U.S. Border Patrol agent Nathaniel Spencer. A known terrorist, thought to be dead, is back in business.
Tracy Wentworth is working for the Department of Homeland Security when she's contacted by Room 59 for an inside job. Aligned with Agent Spencer and backed up by Room 59's considerable resources, they are to assess and eliminate the threat, using any means necessary. But as they delve deeper into Mexico's criminal underworld, it soon becomes clear that someone is planning a massive attack against America...one that would render the entire nation completely defenseless!
The Finish Line
The espionage game has a brand-new rule book. Agents joining the international clandestine group known as Room 59 are the new spymasters. Working beyond the reach of government bureaucracy, Room 59 recruits only the best of the best. The risks, the rewards--and the rush--are worth everything, including the ultimate sacrifice.
After a routine surveillance mission on a quiet London street goes awry, operative David Southerland's reaction leaves him branded a cowboy. While his quick thinking gained valuable intelligence, breaching procedure is a violation that can end a career--or a life. His future in question, Southerland embarks on a desperate pursuit through the capitals of Europe. His mission is to hunt down the beautiful thief in possession of highly classifi ed security information. But the Room 59 agent is not the only hunter. Other very dangerous players are also seeking the prize, and he could become the prey....
The Powers That Be
When a double agent in Cuba suddenly disappears, there's a concern that he might have gone rogue, working against Room 59 and the world at large. But one of the agency's top spymasters has a blood tie to the operative in question, which leaves him with an agonizing choice: allow the mission to be scrubbed, and leave thousands to die in the resulting bloodbath--or risk everything he knows, including his career, to keep his secret deeply buried.
Room 59 is a multinational policing agency sanctioned to terminate global threats that governments can't touch. Its high-level operatives are seasoned in the dangerous game of espionage and counterterrorism. A Room 59 mission puts everything on the line; emotions run high, and so does the body count.
The disappearance of an American journalist in Dubai raises red flags in Washington's covert sectors. The man was a deep cover CIA agent tracking weapons smuggling. When his tortured corpse turns up, Mack Bolan jumps into action, racing to stop the launch of a nuke somewhere in the Middle East. This time, the masterminds aren't the usual suspects. The men behind the conspiracy are Soviet high rollers, rogue players using money, influence and politics to hack off America's long arm in the region and revive Russia's superpower status.
Bolan lights fires throughout the region's criminal underbelly, setting his sights on the Pakistani crime lord smuggling the Russian nuke across borders. Leaving a scorched earth calling card for the traitorous British national who brokered the deal, Bolan delivers a death warning to enemies investing in the carnage of innocents: payback is coming in blood.
