His first full-length thriller in 7 years and its classic Forsyth. Highly competent, suspenseful and topical. Avenger is packed with riveting detail, fast-paced action and political suspense, while in Cal Dexter we meet a hero in the most dynamic Forsyth tradition.
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...
"This action-injected tale races from Vietnam to Bosnia to Washington and on to the jungles of Central America with a taut showdown and an ingenious twist at the end"
"Highly readable and with that trademark of impressive detail"
