Mike (the Paladin)
Mack on the run from the "Mafia" with a $1,000,000 (in 1970 dollars) price on his head puts together his own "team" and takes on the LA mob...and sort of ticks off the police.

Before I went in the army back in the early 70s I read several of these books. Being a shooter/gun enthusiast Pendelton's detailed account of the weapons used (something i'm sure drove some people away from the books) I found very interesting. Aside from that the stories were adrenaline charged violent thrill rides and that
i got hooked on this series back in the 80's I read all the way up to 100 or more then stoped.And now Im starting over. I liked it then and I like it know.A lot of action which I like in books.They tend to keep you on edge and you just don't want to put the book down you just want to what will happen next.
A lot of people seem to prefer this novel to its predecessor, but I find this unfathomable. While Death Squad was an enjoyable read, it measured up poorly against War Against the Mafia. After the grit and realism of that first novel, its sequel often seems almost cartoonish. The biggest stumbling block to my enjoyment of Death Squad, however, is the speed and ease with which Bolan is able to assemble his squad of fellow Vietnam veterans. Every single ex-serviceman he contacts is eager to join hi ...more

This one came off a little messy with all of the tactical lingo, but made up for it with the appearance of Carl Lyons. I huess I never knew he appeared so early in Bolan's career

Needed more Bolan and less of the other guys. Nice to go back though and read the first appearances of what was to become Able Team. All three characters are introduced here for the 1st time. Lyons, "Gadgets" and "Politician".

My first book read on my Kobo.

Pendleton is still developing the Executioner character in this, the second in the series. It is also early enough that the suspention of disbelief needed by the stastistical improbability of success is not too extreme. Enjoyable.
Not really my cup of tea as a series. I imagine others might like it much better. I like some fantasy elements or futuristic SF type elements in my reads.
As much I liked the first Executioner, I hated this one. Not sure I will read any more the series. Too drawn out and boring. Painful to finish.
This one really disappointed me. It was the end, the end was awful. The story was fantastic until the last 10 pages. The end really stunk.

Not nearly as good as the first one in the series.
