All SIX of the action-packed vigilante novels in the classic, 1970s Revenger series are back…and now in ONE ebook.
“This book works exceptionally well. Ben is a believable action hero. He’s not just a good guy with a gun. The breakdown from decent man to cold assassin is a slow burn, but a morbidly entertaining one. A stand-out series.” Paperback Warrior
Ben Martin is a married, Vietnam vet who opens a produce wholesale business in New York City. Life is good until he’s threatened by mobsters, who demand protection money from him to continue doing business. But they soon discover that they are the ones who need protection…from him.
FIRE IN THE STREETS
In New York, Vietnam vet Ben Martin lost his business and his family to the Mafia … and his soul to his one-man war of vengeance. Now he’s in Chicago, resurrected after faking his death, to start a new, quiet life and regain his humanity. But in a cruel twist of fate, he faces horrific violence again, and is forced to become a killing machine to teach the most feared men in America the meaning of blind, gut-wrenching terror.
Features in Afterword by Eric Compton, co-host of the Paperback Warrior podcast.
THE VENDETTA CONTRACT
Ben is trying to live a quiet, mundane life in Morrisville, a small town south of Indianapolis. But his violent past won’t let him go. The Mafia has hired Corbett, an expensive assassin who has never failed, to track him down and kill him.
THE STILETTO SIGNATURE
Ben’s distant cousin Rosa is abducted from the streets of Sicily by a Mafia-run sex slavery ring…and it’s going to take all of his very particular set of skills to save her, crush the entire operation, and kill the stiletto wielding mob boss responsible for it all.
CITY FOR SALE
Ben is back in New York, where his blood-soaked saga of pain and retribution tragically began, and where Johnny Lupo, a psychopathic Mafia boss, orders the murder of a judge and the massacre of the people in his courtroom.
A PROMISE FOR DEATH
The Don of the New York underworld, embroiled in a mob war and worried about the safety of his family, offers Ben Martin the inside information he needs to take out all of the rival crime families in the city.

All SIX novels in the globe-trotting, high-adventure Handyman series in ONE ebook!
All six novels in the classic Revenger series in one action-packed ebook.
The second action-packed novel in the acclaimed Handyman series, back in print for the first time in fifty years. Freelance spy Jefferson Boone is sent by a trio of international intelligence agencies to a lush spa in Austria to investigate a "terrorism for profit" operation, but gets there too late to stop their latest massacre. Now he's got to expose and destroy the global conspiracy before more innocent people die.
Messmann keeps it real. Martin is prone to a lot of soul-searching. At his core, though, he's still a 'specialist in death' who pulled off so many assassinations in Vietnam that he became legendary. Highly recommended.
It's violent when it needs to be, but there's also a great deal of emotional drama. Messmann slowly has unfortunate events consume Ben's life. Ben realizes that he has always wanted to kill again, to right the wrongs, and fight evil. But he also wants to live a normal existence that isn't smeared in blood. Truly fantastic.
It has sex, bloodshed and terror. Ben is as cold-blooded as his enemies, but one can not help but vicariously enjoy The Revenger's success.
