Synopsis

Avenger by Frederick Forsyth

SOLDIER
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.

VIGILANTE
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.

AVENGER
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...

About the Author

Frederick Forsyth

Frederick Forsyth is the author of ten bestselling novels: The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File, The Dogs of War, The Devil's Alternative, The Fourth Protocol, The Negotiator, The Deceiver, The Fist of God, Icon and Avenger. His other works include The Biafra Story, The Shepherd, two short story collection, No Comebacks and The Veteran, and a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, The Phantom of Manhattan. He has also collected together an anthology of flying tales, Great Flying Stories, which includes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Roald Dahl, Len Deighton and H.G. Wells. He lives in Hertfordshire, England.

In February 2012 Frederick Forsyth was announced as the winner of the prestigious CWA Diamond Dagger 2012. Chair of the CWA Peter James said, “Frederick Forsyth is a hugely deserving recipient and The Day of the Jackal remains one of the greatest thrillers of our times. He has set a new standard of research-based authenticity with his writing, which has had a major influence both on my work and on many of my contemporaries in the crime and thriller field. We are very thrilled that he has accepted this award.”

The CWA Diamond Dagger is a much-coveted lifetime achievement award and as the name suggests, it was sponsored by Cartier, who have done so since its inception in 1986 through to 2011. The winners’ careers have been marked by sustained excellence, and they have made a significant contribution to crime fiction published in the English language.
