Mack must go back to Vietnam to save a former friend, who has been captured by the bad guys. Said friend is a storehouse of knowledge about local resistance and has info on more POW's that don't officially exist.


My Thoughts:


This book's time frame was approximately 5hrs. In that time, Mack meets a beautiful, strong and courageous Hottie, faces down a youth who destroys his radio transmitter, turns said youth into a leader, rescues his friends from a Max Security Prison, kills a general who is also a major drug dealer and kills about 11,000 Viet communist soldiers.


Just a day in the life of the Executioner.


I can see why teen's would read this. But after the next one, I'm done. I am finding that I do need some actual plot, not just mindless action and brain splatter. I am surprised as anyone about that.
