Holiday travel turns deadly after a group of Middle Eastern freedom fighters escapes from Camp X-Ray and declares the U.S. their number one enemy. When a cruise ship is hijacked, a rescue mission fails to save the lives of the passengers. Mack Bolan is called in to neutralize the fugitives before they can strike again.

But stopping them won't be easy. Heavily armed and seizing control of a luxury Cuban hotel, the terrorists are prepared to die for their cause—taking the innocent guests with them. In a race to beat the clock and avert a mass murder, the Executioner has only one choice…search and destroy.

He was employed as a telegrapher for Southern Pacific Railroad until 1957. For the next four years, he worked for the CAA/FAA as an air traffic control specialist. In 1961, his career turned toward aerospace engineering where he served in management positions during Martin-Marietta's Titan ICBM programs, as an engineering administrator in NASA's Apollo Moonshot program, and with the United States Air Force C-5 Galaxy program. He began writing in 1957 and his first short story was published that year, followed by a first novel in 1961. He became a full-time author in 1967.
