A double political kidnapping in Ecuador is cause for concern in the U.S. when the deed threatens a new and vital petroleum distribution agreement between the two countries. The question of who is behind the conspiracy and why turns grim when the trail leads to one of the biggest narco-traffickers in South America, a kingpin ruthlessly exploiting the demand for oil---and narcotics. Mack Bolan's mission is sanctioned by the Oval Office to do whatever is necessary to stage a rescue. But he's up against rival mercenaries dispatched by an American oil conglomerate as well as a drug lord with a seasoned army and jungle fortress that may prove impenetrable. The Executioner goes in hard from the beginning, an ambassador of blood retribution who doesn't negotiate...ever.
