Donald Eugene "Don" Pendleton (December 12, 1927 – October 23, 1995) was an American author of fiction and non-fiction books, best known for his creation of the fictional character The Executioner: Mack Bolan. Other works include the Joe Copp, Private Eye series of six novels, the Ashton Ford, Psychic Detective series of six novels, and nonfiction books. He collaborated on several books with his wife, Linda Pendleton, including their popular nonfiction book, To Dance With Angels.

Mack Bolan was twenty minutes into his jog on one of the gymnasium treadmills facing a floor-to-ceiling window that overlooked the eastern perimeter of Stony Man Farm. Through the window he could see the bare-limbed, regimentally planted poplars surrounding the distant Annex as well as the tip of that building’s storage silo, which outsiders were led to believe contained nothing but wood chips ground up as a byproduct of the Farm’s timber-harvesting venture.

Mack Bolan, alias The Executioner, is a fictional character who has been serialized in over 600 novels with sales of more than 200 million books. Created by Don Pendleton, Bolan made his first appearance on the printed page in War Against the Mafia (1969). Pendleton wrote 37 other novels featuring Bolan, often referred to as the "Mafia Wars".

Strategically it was a strong enough hardsite, with easily defendable perimeters and plenty of unobstructed view from the farmhouse. This was not going to be easy. The sixteen of them charging up the dusty driveway leading to the farmhouse could be picked clean by a twelve-year-old with a slingshot. Trying to bluff their way in with a broken-down-car story would not work either: these people had tried most such ploys during their own careers as terrorists. Tanya tapped Bolan on the shoulder and pointed her gun where he wanted him to go.

The Executioner is a monthly action-adventure series created by American author Don Pendleton. Every other month the series is complemented by the release of a SuperBolan, titles that are twice the length of a standard Executioner novel.

It will soon be the perfect storm of violence as the coalescence of the fates will bring together a number of disparate individuals in the out-of-the-way bar The Howling Coyote in the small desert community of Eureka Springs.

Biker, bad-ass, psychopath, and hitman Sam "Wildman" Dean shows up at the bar-and-grill ready to take a contract so that he can make his fiftieth kill; Robert Barklin, mob lawyer has absconded with several millions of dollars of the mob's money, and he's sweating out the idea that his ex-compatriots are actively tracking him down, and bar owners Martin Harrison (aka Jim Lake) and Angelo Balducci (aka Anthony Baldone), who walked away from the Orion Project fourteen months ago, and are now hiding out with information on this new top-secret government invention and weapon. Then there is the dark, somber, mysterious stranger in the grill by the name of Mike Belasko (aka Mack Bolan), who is between jobs, but is "relaxing" by making everybody else in the grill nervous. To top it off, Kyle Braxton runs a four-man government black-bag hit squad, and they are moving in on the bar for a search-and-destroy mission, and they have been ordered to take no prisoners, whether they be man, woman or child. Then the crap hits the fan and there will be death, destruction, and plenty of blood.

But that's only the beginning, after the near massacre in which many will die, and few will survive, Bolan will have some top-secret intel fall into his lap. He will learn that a nearby secret installation has developed a new secret invention and that the head of security routinely executes nosey passersby. Try to kill Bolan and he takes it personal, kill the innocent and he goes on a mission, and he doesn't stop until all the guilty are punished, dead and buried.

This novel is certainly less cluttered than Stony Man #52: Tactical Response (Stony Man), the last Bolan super-thriller that I read in which Bolan, Stony Man, and the Phoenix Force all danced across the stage. Both that novel and this one were written by Dan Schmidt, and this is definitely the better of the two. Schmidt, who seems to favor secret governmental conspiracies, really takes his time to develop the opening situation, in the first hundred pages, as he quietly and effectively moves the characters around the stage until it all blows up into a respectable melée of organized chaos and mayhem. Although, after all of the build-up, I would have liked to have had Wildman have more influence on the proceedings. However, with a little re-writing, this first third could have stood on its own as a full-length novella.

After the first third however, everything falls into routine and clutter as it just wouldn't be a Bolan novel if some bikers and some made-men didn't paint the landscape red with their life's blood.

Behind it all is the traitorous and backstabbing Cromman, the former head of security of Area 51 and his toady Thomas Tharton who has arranged the massacre, and who is pulling the strings, and will bring in the bikers, the mob, the paranoid UFO fringies, two other black-bag para-military hit squads, all to protect a new anti-gravity device whose new radioactive power source has already been responsible for the death of one research team, and which is slowly and painfully killing Cromman, who is looking for payback for being retired, and for one last score.

I realize that big bangs and plenty of bloody death is why most of us tune-in to a Bolan super-thriller, but perhaps this novel, and Schmidt's best interests would have been served it there had been less death, less incompetent bad guys, less senseless massacres, there are at least four, and more of a concentration of creating one bad-ass bunch of tuffs that will battle Bolan all the way through the novel as Bolan whittles them down one at a time. Bolan is an indestructible killing machine, and what he needs is somebody that is his equivalent for him to square off throughout the novel.

Still, this is a science-fiction based episode of Mack Bolan's life, and it deserves, despite the sloppy clutter of the last third of this novel, a full-four star rating based on the first one-hundred pages alone. A one-hundred page chunk of "Dark Truth", the eighty-fourth novel in the Mack Bolan superthriller series by Don Pendleton's ghost writer Dan Schmidt that I read in almost one sitting.

Super Bolan #85 written by Chuck Rogers a writer of over 2 dozen plus books in the GOLD EAGLE line of books. Though Bolan #85 was released in July, 2002, Mr. Rogers last Super Bolan (LETHAL COMPOUND) book was issued in November, 2009.

BREAKAWAY will go down among GOLD EAGLE Mack Bolan readers as an outstanding book in the series. The Executioner has help on this mission not only from Stony Man Farm in general but from Carl Lyons of Able Team in particular. The book concerns itself with the situation on Okinawa and our Marine base Futenma where certain local residents, possibly Yakuza, are attacking military men, having just killed a Marine named Corporal Fielding. Guns are illegal on Okinawa by Japanese law, but Okinawa is the birthplace of karate a skilled martial art that can kill with one knife hand blow especially to the kidney. That is how Corporal Fielding was murdered.

Bolan is now on the trail of a secret Okinawan school which teaches these skills, skills that originated long ago when Okinawans had to defend themselves against padded samurai warriors of the Japanese invading army. To strike and kill a samurai with katana, one quick, sure blow would be all an attacker would given. The killer of Corporal Fielding is so dangerous that most black belts would stand no chance one-on-one of defeating him. As one Okinawan Sensei (teacher) advises Bolan and Lyon, "...if anyone in this place (you are going to) comes within six feet of you, shoot them without hesitation."

Can Bolan and the Stony Farm personel avert open violence on Okinawa or will this issue lead to open warfare? The twisted individuals behind all this are hoping to provoke an international incidence leading to the mass killing of Okinawans. The book may have been released in 2002 but a recent news magazine article just last week described how upset Okinawa is with Japan when the Japanese representatives say they are leaning toward keeping Futenma open. Another GOLD EAGLE book with its finger on the pulse of both past and current events.

This is one of the better books in the ongoing saga of Mack Bolan and Stony Man Farm. If you are fan of these GOLD EAGLE books dig this one out, visit your local 2nd hand bookstore, or buy a copy from Amazon. But don't pass this one up.
