Avenger Synopsis

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.

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...
