Reprint.Living a secret double life, lawyer Cal Dexter embarks on a deadly quest for vengeance that threatens global security, prompting CIA agent Kevin McBride to race against the clock to stop him from from killing a ruthless Serbian warlord whose death could plunge the world into chaos. Reprint.
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.
Annotation:
Cal Dexter, Vietnam vet, is a doctor in a small New Jersey town. He also--for his own reasons--is a vigilante who goes after murderers who were never caught. When a case comes to his attention that resonates deeply with the events of his life, he goes out seeking revenge--and becomes a crazed killer whose search for justice must be stopped at all costs lest he add fuel to an already volatile post-9/11 international situation.
Author Bio
Frederick Forsyth
The son of shopkeepers, Frederick Forsyth left his home in England at the age of 17 and traveled to Spain to study Spanish, only to find himself more interested in becoming a matador. Two years later, he eschewed a college education to become the RAF's youngest pilot. Following his service in the air force, Forsyth worked as a reporter for Reuters and the BBC, but after 13 years in journalism, he turned his talents toward writing novels, a vocation which quickly brought him fame. His first novel, "The Day of the Jackal" (1971), won numerous awards and became an instant international hit. He followed this novel with an unbroken string of best-selling thrillers, often basing the plots on little-known historical facts. Forsyth builds his thrillers using a delicate balance of suspense meant to slowly pull the reader toward a climactic finish, at the same time remaining careful to paint the slightest details, ensuring both accuracy and credibility.
