Skilled in the art of murder, an organized-crime group, known as the Elements of Death, is planning an assassination to place their own man in a powerful position. Their number has come up on Mack Bolan's hit list, but the killers are prepared to fight back with all they've got... and that includes a mole inside the Justice Department.

Chicago becomes a battleground between the Executioner and a gang of the most ruthless hired guns in the world. When Bolan takes out a key female Elements leader, it's up to a skilled lady Fed to impersonate the fallen assassin and create enough heat to force the enemy into Bolan's gun sights. And when it comes to those who earn their living by selling death, the Executioner demands nothing less than blood for blood... .

Don Pendleton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, December 12, 1927. During World War II, on December 7, 1942, days before his 15th birthday, Don enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a Radioman First Class until November of 1947. He served in all the war theaters, receiving various medals. He received his GED certificate of high school equivalency while in the Navy in 1947. 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. The first Executioner novel, War Against the Mafia, was followed by an additional 37 sequels during the ensuing 12 years. The Executioner: Mack Bolan series has been published around the world in more than 25 languages with close to two hundred million copies in print.

Their team of writers have produced close to 400 novels based on Don's original works and use his names as a house pseudonym. In addition to being a novelist, Don was a poet, a screenwriter, essayist and metaphysical scholar. In 1990, he turned to nonfiction with the publication of To Dance With Angels, written with his wife, Linda Pendleton. The book, a definite study of life after death, is currently in its fourth edition.
