In his war against the mob, the Executioner slams into the Florida coast like a one-man hurricane in the classic series from “a writer who spawned a genre” (The New York Times). A sniper trained in the jungles of Vietnam, Mack Bolan is the kind of vigilante hero “who would make Jack Reacher think twice” ( Unleashing his vengeance coast to coast, Bolan is waging a very personal war on organized crime. Now, with a cadre of Cuban revolutionaries on his side, it’s time for a hurricane called the Executioner to blindside Miami. Bolan had planned to fight his way across the country, taking out branches of the syndicate one by one. Then comes a break Bolan never dreamed of: All of his enemies have assembled in the Sunshine State to finalize the elimination of the Executioner. For Bolan, the mob’s Miami summit is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to destroy the entire Mafia with one single blow. “Don Pendleton’s anti-hero is just as powerful in the world of publishing as he is in the dark alleys of any crime-infested urban hell” (NYBooktime). With more than two hundred millions copies of the Executioner books sold since its phenomenal debut, the iconic action series is still inspiring artists today. Gerry Conway, cocreator of the Marvel Comics series, The Punisher, credits the series for “[giving] me the idea for the lone, slightly psychotic avenger.” Currently in production as a major motion picture, the Executioner still blows away the competition. Miami Massacre is the 4th book in the Executioner series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

On 31 July 1975, members of The Miami Showband were returning to Dublin after a gig in Banbridge when they were stopped at a border checkpoint. For Stephen Travers, the band's new bass player, it was an unusual experience but he wasn't too worried. However, as his band mates were lined up beside their vehicle Stephen noticed that the atmosphere had suddenly changed... something more sinister was happening. In a flash their lives were dramatically altered when a bomb that was being placed in the back of their van suddenly exploded prematurely. The events of that night would never leave Stephen Travers - being hurled into the air by the explosion, listening to the cries of his friends as they were mercilessly gunned down and the steps of the gunmen getting closer as they approached to finish him off... What is it like to survive such an atrocity? To live when all around you others died? In The Miami Showband Massacre, Stephen Travers remembers the highs of being in the most successful showband of the 1970s and how it all ended in a terrifying moment of death and destruction. But he also looks for answers as to why his friends - Tony Geraghty, Fran O'Toole and Brian McCoy - were killed. Who ordered the ambush? What drove them to such an act? Stephen wants to understand, but will he find the answers when he meets the men responsible for the massacre face to face?
