Avenger (Frederick Forsyth)

Posted on Mon 27 November 2006 in Rooties Recent Reading

Another enjoyable action book, taking the mild manered persona and giving it a hidden life. What I most enjoyed about this book was that so many story lines interacted to make the story complete. It travelled from a engineering soldier in Vietnam, A couple of RAF World War 2 fighter pilots, A lawyer in New York, A rich businessman in Canada, An arms dealer in Bosnia, a computer security programmer and consultant, and probably a few people I forgot in there too. It used those connections between people very to give our hero motives and to take our hero to the brink of death. Enemies from one war became friends to fight another. Our hero survives, some innocents die and ending in somewhat of a moral victory, the villains are captured to be tried by the authorities. Another book I couldn't put down once I had started reading.
