I enjoyed reading Arctic Kill. I have been a Mack Bolan fan since the mid-70's. I must have read at least the first 80 or 90 books (this one is about #450 or so). Reading this thriller brought me back in time. Still the same ole Executioner style of action. Bolan appears to be ageless and let's hope he stays that way. I might have to dip in and get some more. Popcorn type books, not too deep and featuring a tough as nail character. Mack Bolan could be be my generation's version of Matt Helm (I l ...more

This one hits on all cylinders. Relentless pacing, brutal action, villains you love to hate and the clear image of Mack fighting for something bigger than himself. Fantastic read.

I haven't read a Mack Bolan book in a long time, but when I picked this one up and read it, I enjoyed it for more than nostalgia. It's your basic action flick book. The bad guys are bad and have a plan, Mack is the only one in position to stop them and he won't stop until he succeeds.

The plot unfolds pretty much by the numbers and the writing is fine. One quibble though is that the author has AR-15's firing bursts, but they are single-shot only. Given the guns pedigree of the books this is a not

I started reading the Executioner Series way back in the early 70's. I liked it then and I still enjoy reading it though this is my first Executioner book in a very long time.

To me Mack Bolan is the original Reacher, or Sam Archer. He is big and strong and stubborn and feels justice is due at any cost.

Mack Bolan is now helping the United States government take down terrorists instead of fighting his one man war against the Mafia. In Arctic Kill he fights a group who wants to destroy the world wi

Fun read. However the juggernaut of Mack Bolan grew kind of surreal and tiresome. I love a novel centered around decisive tough guy but the endurance, ability to recover, and absolute power wore thin by the books end. Further, the ending was vague as-if the author just tired of writing or didn't want to flesh it all out as he did the rest of the story. Overall the book was a lot of fun.

I used to read Executioner novels as a kid, along with all sorts of other spy/detective/tough guy stuff. This was a trip down memory lane that I thoroughly enjoyed. The writing was better than I expected, the plot predictable, the characters good and the dialog enjoyable. While probably not everyone's cup of tea Arctic Kill was an enjoyable bit of literary junk food.

A pretty standard Bolan book. Racists want to recover a deadly virus locked up in the far north. The leader is a nicotine-addicted weasel. His second is a somewhat honourable Nazi. And Bolan tracks them from the southern states to Alaska and wins the day (technically a spoiler, but seriously?)

A pleasant read, but not one of the more exciting entries.

While Bolan had few compunctions about killing a dangerous man, he rarely killed animals unless absolutely necessary. That said, if it came down to it, he wouldn't hesitate.

Bolan fell silent. She wasnt far off. In his War Everlasting, he'd killed more men than he liked to consider. "I've never killed a man who didn't deserve it," he said finally.

I just couldn't get into this book ..I have read other Mack Bolan books before and liked them..this one I don't know maybe I wan't in the mood ..It just didn't keep my interest..If I can put a book down and not want to come back to it then it is not for me..

I didn't realize until I finished the ebook that these are put out by Harlequin. It makes sense because as with their romances, after you read one, you know what you are getting. They are an enjoyable quick read for an afternoon without demanding much from the reader.

Fast moving, but a bit too much philosophy

I had read a number of this series years ago and picked this up to check out the modern version, it was interesting and improbable as ever, definitely 4 stars!

Good free book

This was action packed and hard to put down. Finished it in one day. Would have given it a higher rating but tired of the Nazi theme so prevalent in action adventure novels.

This was pretty entertaining for what it was - a short, action-packed, adventure novel. Don't expect anything challenging.
Gary Sedivy
Typical one-man-against-all-odds action thriller. Reminds me of Reacher, or Spenser.

Great read!

Typically entertaining Executioner novel; like a vacation from the daily routine. Back to work feeling refreshed and ready to roll.
Bill Barnes
Decent Read

Should be classified more fantasy than adventure Still worth the time to read. It is a quick easy read, about 5 hours.
