"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.
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.
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.
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."
"Forsyth is truly the world's reigning master of suspense."
