Publisher's Summary

Canadian billionaire Steven Edmond's grandson was an aid volunteer in the former Yugoslavia. After he was murdered, Edmond sought revenge by hiring an ex-Vietnam special forces agent to hunt the killer down: Cal Dexter, ex-Vietnam Special Forces, the one man who could bring the killer to justice. But what starts as a personal, domestic tragedy soon explodes into a terrifying drama on the centre stage of world terrorism.

    It has to be COBRA the follow up to AVENGER.

    "Far fetched but worth a listen"

    This Forsyth got past me somehow. Not bad. You have to keep your attention as story jumps back and forth in time. The end is very far fetched but well read by Eric conger.

    Story
    "Excellent storytelling"

    An interesting, well woven journey through complex characters and many of the conflicts of recent history. Forsyth presents characters well, with deep complexity and, in many cases, moral ambiguity. He creates a tremendously exciting and original story in Avenger.

    Story
    "Avenger-Not what I expected!"
    Would you listen to Avenger again? Why?

    Yes, I would definitely listen again, there was so much to hear and compute, I listened to several passages more than once.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the way that I was introduced to our hero, the story was set and then I was sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting!


    Which character – as performed by Eric Conger – was your favourite?

    Of course, The Avenger, was the one in which I was most interested. I enjoyed his two, separate characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wasn't moved, but the death of Calvin's wife and child proved a necessity for his ability to become, The Avenger.
