PAPERBACKS • FICTION • MEN'S ADVENTURE SERIES • THE PENETRATOR

All entries are listed chronologically:

One of the more popular men's adventure series published since the 1970s, The Penetrator (1973-1984) features Vietnam veteran Mark Hardin, who has made it it civilian duty to, as the publisher puts it, "to stamp out crime and corruption wherever he finds it." Credited to one "Lionel Derrick," the books were actually written by two authors who alternated the chores between odd and even numbered entries: Mark K. Roberts and Chet Cunningham, respectively. The series included fifty-three novels, six of which were later reprinted as omnibuses in 1991.
