Help me name this series

I had a friend in high school who was really into military stuff… this was the height of the Rambo era, and he was totally into it. He read a series of pulp novels with an American special forces agent or something who would rescue POWs and blow up commies or something… I never read one, they looked terrible. I think either the character or the author was named Max, but I could be mistaken. In any case, if there’s a genre of novel that’s action/military/adventure with a right wing slant, these are probably the most famous series of the era–straight to paper, I’m sure, and about 120 pages long, something you could read in an hour. I just got curious to look them up, but I can’t remember enough to google them. Anybody? Anybody? Beuller?

Mack Bolan: Executioner

Yep, that’s it. Thanks.

They don’t look any better than I remember…

I remember reading those when they first came out, but lost interest when the Mafia Wars ended and he started working for the government. I may even have some of them packed away somewhere.

Not a problem, glad to help. :slight_smile:

There’s almost 700 books in the series, which is less than 40 years old… I think it can be assumed that at least 300 of them are complete drek. >_>

I read about half a dozen of them when I was in high school. I remember thinking they were all remarkably similar.

Funny thing about them, they’re published by Harlequin. Oh sure, it says something else on the books, “American Publishing” or something like that, but it’s entirely owned by Harlequin. When I used to work at a book store, I used to get a kick out of all these guys coming to by their Mack Bolan books, wondering if they knew they were buying Harlequins.
