I just cannot put these books down. I feel like Mack Bolan is my family and I m rooting for him, worry about him, laugh with him and cry with n for him. I was glad to see the series keep getting better n better, thought for sure after book 4 how many ways can this story line go, I mean you would think taking out the mafia in so many ways just thrills me. Well written and surprised each adventure have held my attention. And just think I still have several more books to read.

Interesting approach to revenge. But I don't approve of murder in any form, however when only the "bad" guys die and get payback there is something to be said about revenge. There was many ways in which the executioner gets even that were very interesting. But the Executioner does go a little outside of his right of "revenge". Little better than an average read.

BOSTON BLITZ opens at a mob hangout with Bolan blasting a low-level mob boss named Julio LaRocca. When the audience is properly attentive he tells them to spread the word he is in town and ends it with:

“Tell them! I’m here. Tell them someone knows why! Tell them.”

The plot moves quickly and without a hitch. The action is explosive and exciting, but there isn’t nearly as much action as you would expect. It is paced expertly and the action is used moderately to emphasize and catapult the story from one twist to another. Bolan is a super-hero; more comic book hero than anything else, but Mr Pendleton clutters the narrative with a visually tired, worn out and burdened Mack Bolan. Not so much that it gets tiresome, but rather just enough to make the guy likable and human.

The prose is very hardboiled:

“Yeah, all too familiar. Bolan threw off a tremor of revulsion—for himself, for the world he adopted—then he steeled himself and dropped into the reality of War Everlasting.”

And it—the prose—matches the action and mood of the novel perfectly. There is no humor. There is only sorrow and sadness in the manner of the outsider, very much like the hero of a traditional Western that saves a society that cannot tolerate him or his actions.

BOSTON BLITZ is the best The Executioner novel I have read and if you think you know the work of Don Pendleton and you haven’t read it you should. You might be surprised how good these novels can be. And you might be surprised that Don Pendelton was a pretty fair storyteller who not only created a genre, but worked that genre better than anyone else ever has.

More introspection and less action in this one, the action is short and sweet when it does happen. I remembered only a small bit from the first time I read it in the 70s, does read differently 45 years later which is no surprise.
Still enjoyable, not fancy just a quick summer read
man vs the mob in Boston.
If you are new to the series I would not start with this one, assuming you are not starting with the first one I would still try to grab a book in the 1st five
