Several of Gores's standalones involve revenge scenarios. And his first, A Time of (for?) Predators, avenges a rape that led to suicide
(didn't a later one also involve a rape?). In Westlake's The Ax, on the other hand, the violence is no rooted in revenge, but in a cold, hard, logical solution to a problem.
