Mack Bolan is on a covert mission in Afghanistan when the body of an American soldier goes missing following an ambush. Bolan is determined to get the fallen soldier back on American soil, but the Taliban forces who stole the body have their own plans—and an honorable burial is not one of them.

With more U.S. soldiers killed along the trail and the Taliban planning to execute a group of innocent women and children in an effort to disgrace the American troops, Bolan knows every second counts. The Executioner has only one chance to stop the ruthless plan, and nothing is going to stand in his way.
