Not just those two. Doesn't Wolf Time fit this theme, also?

Vengeance Man by Dan Marlowe, of course.

Although he is supposedly just after his money, Parker gets a lot of vengeance on those who took it in The Hunter (AKA Point Blank and Payback).

Get Carter is about finding out what happened to his borther and "making it right." Russell Jams's Payback works a similar theme, as does Allan Guthrie's Kiss Her Goodbye.
