CASUALTIES OF PEACE
When rebels take a Chechen town hostage, Russia stands poised to annihilate the threat--in spite of the United Nations' opposition--refusing to even consider the terrorists' demands. The dire peacekeeping situation tops the U.S. government's priorities after it comes to light that American mining surveyors had been invited there to investigate an enormous mineral deposit. Unfortunately, the rebels also know why the surveyors are in the country and demand all the intel they can wring from them...or they will proceed to kill them one by one.
Russia is the only player unaware of the land's rich potential, and the President needs to get his citizens back without letting the truth come out. Mack Bolan and a team of mercenaries must extract the Americans before the stakes go through the roof--a task made harder when Bolan has to deal with betrayal among his teammates. But if there's one thing the Executioner knows, it's how to deal with betrayal.
