Synopsis

Critical evacuation 

A secret meeting with antigovernment leaders ready to negotiate peace in Syria backfires when the plane carrying UN diplomats to the war-torn country is shot down. Tasked with finding—and extracting—the diplomats before word of their disappearance gets out, Mack Bolan drops into the Syrian desert. 

But Bolan isn't the only one looking for the crash site. The rebels and the Syrian military each have their own agendas, and UN officials would make valuable hostages for either side of the conflict. With the plane's tracking device mysteriously disabled and hundreds of miles of desert to search, Bolan is in a deadly race against fighters who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their cause. The Executioner won't stop until he leaves his enemies in the dust of their own destruction.

In 1952, in the midst of the Korean conflict, Don returned to active Naval service for two years. He began writing in 1957 and his first short story was published that year, followed by a first novel in 1961. But it was not until 1967, at the age of 40, that his attention turned to full-time writing. After producing a number of short stories, science fiction and mystery novels, he launched, in 1969, the phenomenal Executioner Series.
