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. Attorney Calvin Dexter hangs his shingle in a quiet New Jersey town, has a reasonably successful practice, and takes the hills strong while triathlon training. But Dexter is no ordinary man. 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.
I love this book
This is an awesome book. It takes one back and brings you forward. I have listened to this book twice and will probably revisit it again.
The manner in which this story began I didn't think you could get suspense and intrigue out of it. I was very wrong as Forsyth proves again that he is the master of international intrigue. Like Follette, Ludlum and one or two more, he has the ability to spin a beliveable tale of suspense and adventure. Good book.
Typical of Frederick Forsyth. Edge of your seat anticipation of the next sequence of events. Top 3 audiobooks on iTunes, easy.
