From Publishers Weekly:

This sexy thriller by the author of The Killing Anniversary has everything: international intrigue, political corruption and violence, high-stakes double-dealing, beautiful women and powerful men, and enough of a mystery to keep the pages turning. Tom Lambert is most unhappy as he sits in a villa on a private Greek island on a warm night in 1978. Watching a snippet of homemade pornography, he becomes angrier than ever and determines to kill someone--that very night. To dissuade him, his longtime friend and assistant, Constantin, sets him reminiscing about their adventures over the past decade. A series of flashbacks unfolds Tom's story, which begins as elusive billionaire Maurice Stanton persuades him to take over his far-flung empire. Along the way Tom saves the life of Constantin, a Greek lawyer turned tavern owner, captured and tortured by his country's ruling junta. Tom's fortune seems crowned when he woos and weds Maurice's daughter, Kirsten, but her bitter mother's revenge and her vicious brother's machinations lead to tragedy. In a bittersweet ending, Tom brings all his enemies together for a final, dramatic confrontation. 100,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo; BOMC main selection.

From Library Journal:

Vengeance is a topnotch novel in the Sidney Sheldon tradition. Tom Lambert, a young workaholic executive who has a reputation for rebuilding failing companies, takes on the job of uniting three family enterprises under the global business umbrella of charismatic Swiss millionaire Maurice Stanton. Strong personalities immediately clash as everyone scrambles for their piece of the action. Lambert must fight for control in the boardroom even as he secretly plots revenge for a tragic death. As he recalls his years at Stanton, the story hastens inexorably toward the final showdown on Stanton's isolated Greek island. Well written and fast paced, the action moves from London to Silicon Valley to Greece under the repressive rule of the generals. By the author of The Killing Anniversary and Justice , this is a real winner for the popular fiction collection. BOMC selection.
