    To save a city that’s corrupt to its core, the Executioner launches a quiet assault San Diego has one of the finest harbors in the world, easy access to Mexico, and more federal dollars than anywhere else in the country. This combination has made it irresistible to the mob, which runs the city from top to bottom. In his one-man war against organized crime, Mack Bolan has never considered targeting San Diego. The city is too sick to save.   Mack’s old commander from Vietnam is in trouble with the San Diego syndicate, and only the Executioner can save him. Once, Mack would have given anything for Howlin’ Harlan Winters, but he’s not sure he can trust him anymore. Taking down the San Diego mob will require a different kind of battle—a silent infiltration and a surgical assault. To back himself up, Bolan recruits the two surviving members of his long-disbanded Death Squad. If San Diego cannot be saved, it will have to be destroyed.

    A risky gamble might not pay off when Lawrence Sanders’s dilettante detective plunges into a quagmire of greed, passion, and murder At first, Archy McNally was unofficially enlisted to verify the bona fides of a deal for a rare Fabergé Imperial egg, created exclusively for the doomed Czar Nicholas in 1917. But when Edythe Westmore’s son and daughter become convinced the trinket is a fake and their mother is being conned, McNally is asked to deep-six the whole deal. He gets more than he bargained for when Natalie Westmore and her brother’s wife, Helen, both try to seduce him. The Palm Beach detective will need to employ some fancy footwork as he reveals a mess of lust, greed, and murder that smells worse than a rotten egg. Now it’s his own neck McNally’s risking to lay a trap for someone who’s counting dividends before they hatch.
