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.

From the Back Cover:

"His Best In Decades... Pure Gold."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Frederick Forsyth's explosive blockbusters defined the conspiracy thriller. Now the acknowledged master of bestselling international suspense and intrigue returns with a vengeance igniting a time-bomb of a novel.

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 lives no ordinary life.

Vigilante.
The beast Dexter's been hired to hunt is Zilic, a Serbian warlord ensconced in a South American compound with the best security blood money can buy. One victim left in his wake was an innocent American aid worker in Bosnia-the grandson of a Canadian tycoon who can afford the best revenge.

Avenger.
And so, a worldwide chase is on, and Dexter begins to draw a net around the killer. But this time, CIA agent Paul Devereaux must find a way to stop Dexter before his quest for vengeance throws the world into chaos.

"Plans within plans unfold spectacularly."
-Entertainment Weekly

"Forsyth is truly the world's reigning master of suspense."
--The Los Angeles Times
