A New York Times Bestselling Author 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. 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 Devereaux must find a way to stop Dexter before his quest for vengeance throws the world into chaos.

One of the best of Forsythe's later books, almost up to the impossible standard set by The Fourth Protocol. Forsythe's device of making characters encounter each other a second or third time after many years and in new contexts is here exploited to the max, with highly gratifying effect. Forsythe manages to intelligently, realistically portray brutal violence to suit the purpose of the story, without it dominating the story or becoming simply gratuitous and low-brow. This one is very much a story for our times, connecting the Viet Nam experience and the Balkan War with our present-day situation where war criminals sometimes contrive to escape justice and even enjoy the fruits of their ill-deeds -- until one of Forsythe's heroes catches up with them!

Great audio CD! A bit confusing at times towards the beginning as the story goes from 1995 to 2001 to the 1960's to 1975 and back to 2001. Many intriguing threads come together to make for a great story. For me, when you have a novel with all this excitement the ending is huge and can make or break the story. The ending on this one--probably the last two to three sentences--make this novel all worth while! I don't give a 10 out of 10 very often, and right up to the end I was at an 8 out of 10, but the ending on this one earned the book a 10!! Well done, Mr. Forsyth!!
