The Penetrator. He learned how in Vietnam. Infiltrate the enemy's position, determine the plan of action and then strike swiftly, taking out as many key men as possible, wreaking destruction, leaving chaos in your wake.Now he as in Los Angeles, engaged in a new, far more sinister war. But he was fully prepared and totally committed, and bound by no rules but his own.He is tall and slim, reflecting his unique Indian-Welsh background. His driver's license indicates his age is twenty-eight. If he seems a bit grim, it is for good reason.He was orphaned at four, when his parents and three brothers and sisters were killed in an automobile crash. Since then, he's been mistreated, brutalized by life, injured in games (football), and wounded in combat. Mark Hardin is tough, a survivor, and an expert in marksmanship, karate, aikido and even the crossbow.He is the new breed of warrior without uniform, without rank dedicated to the American way of life, and pledged to fight anyone who seeks to destroy it, on either side of the law. That's why he is in Los Angeles. Just the beginning of a long and lonely series of brushfire wars.
Overall, I really liked the story. It's similar to The Executioner but also very different.
I have to say I didn't really like the audio version. The narrator doesn't do a very good job making the characters sound different, his accents are bad and the production values are very low; you can actually hear the narrator turning the pages in his script.
I'll read more books in this series but I'll probably skip the audio versions.
