BIDDING WAR An Israeli defense contractor has constructed state-of-the-art components for the Valkyrie missile-the closest thing to divine power the world has ever seen. Everybody wants a piece of the action, including rogue elements prepared to kill to control it. A murder trail leads Bolan to Athens, where an assassin gives chase on what becomes a death race across the globe. The enemy is a wealthy Chinese spymaster, whose scope reaches deep into the covert corners of American intelligence-gathering organizations. Controlling Valkyrie is just the beginning of a master conspiracy to buy out the safety of the free world. With Stony Man Farm putting everything it's got behind him, the Executioner hunts down a mastermind with unlimited resources and the ruthlessness to hijack world peace.
