Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Avenger by Frederick Forsyth
Many years ago, Cal Dexter was a Vietnam tunnel rat recruited to ferret out the jungle lairs of the enemy. Today, he's a small-time attorney in a sleepy New Jersey town. But Dexter's life is anything but ordinary.
The beast Dexter's been hired to hunt is Zilic, a Serbian warlord cocooned in a South American compound with the best security blood money can buy. But one of the gangster's victims is an innocent American aid worker - and the grandson of a business tycoon who can afford the best revenge.
And so the chase is on. Slowly Dexter begins to draw a net around the killer. But CIA agent Paul Devereaux must find a way to stop him before his quest for revenge throws the world into chaos...
