Attorney Calvin Dexter hangs his shingle in a quiet New Jersey town, has a reasonably successful practice, and takes the hills strong while triathalon training. But Dexter is no ordinary man.


The summer before he goes to college, Ricky Colenso travels to Bosnia to volunteer as an aid worker. A few weeks later, he disappears and is never heard from again. A family grieves and is offered little hope--in the fog of that horrible time and place, the killer, too, has vanished.


Or so it would seem. For in a world that has forgotten right and wrong, there are few like Cal Dexter who can settle the score. And so, years later, a worldwide chase is on and Dexter begins to draw a net around the killer. But this time CIA agent Paul Devereux must find a way to stop Dexter before his quest for vengeance throws the world into chaos.


A heart-stopping novel of murder and mystery, double-cross and triple-cross, old loyalties and new hatreds, Avenger has all of Frederick Forsyth's page-turning trademarks.

    Vaguely disappointing.

    Though finely crafted, this book seems to have been written to comply with some computer algorithm. The hero is impossibly talented, his skills almost superhuman and thus the work lacks authenticity. Without claiming superior deductive powers, it became obvious very early in the narrative what the "twist" in the tale would be, and the revelation at the end only added to the feeling of delusion. This is so disheartening from such an accomplished author.
