      Description: Introducing “action adventure icon” Mack Bolan as he wages a one-man war against the Mafia—in the first three books of the million-selling series (Los Angeles Times). In the jungles of Southeast Asia, no sniper was more ruthless than Mack Bolan. The Second Mafia War was a conflict waged by the Sicilian Mafia, mostly taking place from the late s to the early s and involved over hundreds of mes referred to as The Great Mafia War or the Mattanza (Italian for The Slaughter), it involved the entire Mafia and radically altered the power balance within the addition to the violence within the Mafia.

      War Against the Mafia by Eagle. I have been collecting the Executioner series for several years now. Thought I would never find the first edition. Thanks to Alibris the search is over! It was a first run edition, not a reprint. Came to me in better than expected 5/5(1). He was under pressure from a gang of Mafia thugs who were after his money and were willing to destroy his life to get it. For the sake of his old man, Bolan declares war on the men who drove him mad. Five loan sharks are getting into their car when a bullet slams one of them to the ground.

        Of course, War Against the Mafia might be one of the best Executioner books I have read so far, but in the end it is just one more Executioner book. Do not expect it to be deep or intellectual. For what it is, it is a good book, but what it is, is a equivalent of one of those modern straight-to-DVD action movies/5(). War Against the Mafia is the 1st book in the Executioner series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order. Publisher: Open Road Media Kindle Book. Release date: Decem OverDrive Read. ISBN:
