Frederick Forsyth is back with a vengeance! A heart-stopping thriller of murder, intrigue, deception, and revenge

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 lawyer. On Sundays, he reads the paper and shuffles around his dark, empty house, trying to forget about a life he has lost forever.

Until, of course, Dexter reads something in the papers that sends him the necessary signal. Until one of the handful who know of Dexter's other life tries to contact him. For in a world that has forgotten right and wrong, few can settle a score like Cal Dexter can.

But the game is changing, and this time CIA agent Kevin McBride must find a way to stop Dexter before his quest for vengeance throws the world into chaos.

    " This is a pretty good book - has lots of those Forsyth-esque details building to a point, and it's pretty good. It shouldn't surprise most readers, but it has a good strength of narrative throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ethan | 12/1/2013

    " Really a good book. If I could give half stars this would be a 4.5er. Frederick Forsyth, as far as I can remember, has never disappointed me. The action was realistic, fast paced and intriguing. Highly recommended. "

    " This is one of the best books I have read. It's rare that I don't see the end coming. This one surprised me. I'm sad I've never been able to catch the TNT made-for-TV movie they did with this one. I wish there were more of The Avengers adventures. "

    " Not the best from Fredrick Forsyth. The first part is really interesting but ends abruptly as per me. But the plot is really cleaver, and always attention to details is amazing. For me this is a read once book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 7/24/2012

    " The story was excellent. But the character development, although interesting, took up about 65% of the book. Needs more story and less background. "

    " Well, I learned a lot from this book, loved the protagonist and I was actually going to give it five stars if the author didn't make the stupid mistake of using the wrong name for "Persian Gulf". He was also unfair about the nature of Iran's intervention in Bosnia. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ardita | 4/4/2011

    " Breezed thru the novel in a day and a half. Flowing story. Great characters. Forsyth revamped a cliche story of revenge into a one-man mission, without giving out a "B-rated" movie feeling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nigel | 10/8/2010

    " This is quite simply the best book I have ever read.

    Forsyth writes cleverly at the best of times, but this is an extremely clever storyline that takes you on a journey from the Vietnam war through to the present day. A truly excellent read. "

    Excellent build-up to predictable climax "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 7/28/2010

    " Typrical of Frederick Forsyth's books. The structure is getting tired, though, since it is used by so many authors. Nowhere near the appeal of "The Day of the Jackal." "
