Charley Becker, head of one of America's biggest conglomerates, is a man on a mission. His only granddaughter, the beloved Natasha, has been found dead in her flat after taking an accidental overdose of cocaine and now he wants revenge. Determined to find the men responsible, Charley starts by tracking down Natasha's boyfriend, Tim. Then he finds the small-time dealers who supplied him. Charley's way of doing business leaves no room for negotiation. But 'wet work' - the shooting of a victim from up close - is only half the story and the further up the chain Charley gets, the higher the stakes become. To nail Peru's megalomaniac cocaine king, he will have to hire himself some hitmen, a gunboat and some truly extraordinary weaponry...

About the Author:

Christopher Buckley is a novelist and founding editor of Forbes FYI magazine. He lives in Washington, D. C., with his wife and two children. His journalism, satire and criticism has, amongst others, appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Esquire.

From Library Journal:

Grandfathers with nothing to lose are the most dangerous avengers, argues Buckley, whose The White House Mess (Knopf, 1986) is still going strong. Here, armed with his puckish humor, and drawing on the milieu of drugs and insurgency, Buckley unleashes a formidable senior citizen's vengeance when his only grandchild dies of a cocaine overdose. After disposing of her domestic predators, the old geezer sets sail in his yacht for the Amazon, bent on eliminating the Peruvian drug lord in his jungle redoubt. Buckley subtly merges the sheer entertainment of a good travel yarn with the vicious motivations of greed to produce a story that deserves a strong recommendation.
