Continuing his one-man war on the Mafia, Mack Bolan (no relation to Marc Bolan, of T.Rex, I presume) gets whiff of a Mafia summit in the matching-white-belts-and-shoes capital of the world, so he heads to Miami to interrupt the proceedings. I predict there is going to be a massacre-- a Miami massacre, to be precise, which is also the title of the fourth in Don Pendleton's 1970s-era Executioner series.

Miami Massacre benefits from actually being written by Don Pendleton, the creator of Mack Bolan,

An excellent men's adventure series from the 60s, 70's and 80's. The first 38 books are outstanding but then the series is taken over by a bunch of new writers, writing under the name of the original creator and they take the series into a new direction I did not care for. The first 38 books are very recommended
Gary Peterson
Another adventure in the annals of The Executioner. Very good, but not as strong as the three books that preceded it.

Pendleton keeps things moving at a rapid-fire pace--literally--for 192 pages. Bolan has his sights set on Johnny the Musician Portocci, and hits the jackpot when he follows Portocci from Arizona to Miami where a Mafia convention is convening. For Bolan a hotel filled with mobsters is like shooting fish in a barrel. He just walks the halls picking 'em off. My favorite was the guy

When Miami Massacre was first published in 1970, it is the waning
days of the Age of Aquarius and men are returning from Vietnam,
finding that there are other wars to fight just as tough. Bolan, earlier
in the series ("War Against The Mafia"), returns home to Los Angeles
to find the Mafia has ruined his family, driven them to despair, suicide,
and more. Known as " the Executioner," Bolan declares war on all the
tough guys the Mafia can muster. Thus, begins one of the great Men's

I just read this on a whim, as I found a stack of about 10 of these on the shelf at the town dump. Being the book scrounger (and cheapskate) I am, I grabbed them all. Hell, I figured I would read one, and if I liked it, then I had plenty more to work with. If not, back to the dump with them.
Glad I grabbed them! This is good ol' fashioned pulp fiction, the days when you wrote stories without worrying about developing the characters overmuch. Anything that is exciting and drives the plot forward i

Another violent (I hate the word, but...) "romp" with Bolan infiltrating a meeting of mob head honchos that has been called to plan his demise. Here he runs into...dum, dum, dum (okay maybe "dum" wasn't the best choice of sound effect for a book some may think is close to "dumb" anyway...but just go with it) as I was saying he runs into the Talifero brothers! (never heard of them huh? Well that's because even though they are apparntly world renound "hitters" they are, fictional ones.)

"Σφαγή στο Μαϊάμι", εκδόσεις Άγκυρα.

Τέταρτο βιβλίο της σειράς Ο Εκτελεστής, στο οποίο γι'ακόμη μια φορά ο Μακ Μπόλαν, βετεράνος του πολέμου στο Βιετνάμ, τα βάζει με την μισητή Μαφία που κατέστρεψε την οικογένειά του.

I don't remember this book at all so I'm not sure I read it back in high school.

I think Bolan should be required to tell any woman he comes in contact with that they are putting themselves in grave danger if they decide to spend any time with him.

The opening action scene, the action scene at the "model's" house and the action scene at the first hotel he attacks were all pretty cool. The car chase and shootout after leaving the "model's" house was another example of "don't mess with Bolan's frien

I shouldn't be so critical. This series is very addictive pulp. This 4th installment introduced the 'dreaded Talifero Brothers.' Polite, hippy, super-enforcers. They question a mob guy for hours, and oh-boy does he sweat. Later in the story, they torture a girl, and Mack gets sad, and then goes off like a nuclear bomb. Boom!

These books are very fun, even the duds.Like pizza, even a bad pizza is usually edible. I thought this book was kind of funny since Mack is driving his rental car around Miam

Mack moves to Florida to wreak his havoc. He is using a Luger, which i don't remember and seems a strange choice....i had to look up and see if Luger made a modern (modern = post 1960) version or not..It wasn't re-manufactured till 1991 by a Texas firm..but when i looked it up i found that it was considered a very accurate pistol and well liked. It was a favorite pistol when available during the Vietnam war, which now makes sense...

Another great Executioner story! More non-stop action with Mack Bolan fighting the Mafia, this time in South Florida. Looking forward to reading about Bolan's trip to Europe next. If the first four stories are any indication, that one should be a blast!

Bought it with my Dad at Kroch's and Brentano's in Chicago. Read a few but I think we fizzled out after the first ten or so. Lot's of fun.

It's really interesting to read these knowing where the series heads. I may not have noticed where "live large" originated, if I hadn't known that it becomes a mantra for Bolan.

Sometimes you need a book to read for entertainment without the need overthink it. Good old good guy vs bad guy novel!
