Mike (the Paladin)
Don has plastic surgery and strangly enough some violent problems. Okay but it's good action and theystill have a story line here.

From reviews of the first 2 books:

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's all tha...more
After his miraculous escape at the end of Death Squad (aided in part by Carl Lyons), Bolan is back on the trail of Mob boss Julian "Deej" DiGeorge. Unlike Death Squad, however, Bolan is on his own in Battle Mask. Although Pendleton’s third Executioner novel isn’t quite as good as War Against the Mafia, I think it’s a slight improvement over Death Squad. I prefer to see Bolan working alone, perhaps occasionally receiving assistance from sympathetic parties, but nothing more. Battle Mask is also q...more
This one was my favorite to date in the series. #24 is next, but not until I finish Tim Marquitz's Echoes of the Past.

This one picks up right after the bad ending of book 2 Death Squad, and we find a hopeless Mack Bolan alone and without friends, being hounded by the remaining gun-crews in L.A. Mack narrowly escapes by the help of an old WWII veteran, who is shot for helping Mack. This re-kindles Mack's determination to continue his battle, or at least finish what he started against the DiGeorge...more

Brognola makes his first appearance and Bolan gets a face lift. More great history in this awesome series. Fast and fun.
Dale Pearl
Starts out with the main character Mack Bolan fleeing Los Angeles area with the mob and the police hot on his tail. Mack is heading to Palm Springs where an ex army surgeon lives. Mack is hoping that the surgeon can perform plastic surgery on him in order to hide his identity from all those that are seeking his death.

Substantially better than book two in the series.
Suoraa jatkoa edelliselle Bolanille, kiitettävää kronologian seuraamista Vaasa Oy:ltä.
Itse tarinassa Bolan ei ole aivan vielä niin kylmä ja tyly kuin se Bolan johon teinivuosinani ihastuin. Kovasti mies virnuilee ja puhuu.
Kyllä tämän lukaisi.
Craig Rettig
Bolan actually uses his brain instead of just his trigger finger in this one, so it's a bit more enjoyable.
I like these books Don Pendleeton gose into such deteails and a lot of action.
Bill Jackman
Number III in the series. Character is still developing.
