Mack Bolan begins a soft probe into the suspected cartel-related death of an undercover federal agent. Rusty links in the drug chain lead him to a fellow avenger in the narcotics wars, and into a sideline mission as troubleshooter on an intel-gathering cruise to the hotspots in cocaine paradise.
After three days, the mission starts to smell. And when the cruise ship is hijacked by terrorists, the Executioner discovers that he's become prime bait in shark-infested waters.
But in a sea of red death, this bait is live. And hungry for blood.
