The Exchange: A Story of Deceit
The Exchange is a gripping story of robbery, murder and deceit. Playboys, thieves, corrupt policemen, ex-mercenaries and manipulative women have become tangled in a web of lies, but who will survive..? Roy Kelly is a petty, small-time thief who has spent years robbing unoccupied houses, until one day when he is caught by Katherine Boyd, a beguiling woman who does not call the police. Instead, she uses her powers of seduction to manipulate him into a plot that involves the murder of her abusive husband. Little do they know that the gun Kelly fires was previously used to kill a politician, and that Oliver Statham, the man who supplied it, has fled to Africa. Playboy Jeremy Pendleton is waiting for his luxury cruiser to be delivered when thieves murder the guards and steal it. Mike Randle and Suzie Drake, the owners of the boatyard, must use their ex-mercenary skills to recapture the yacht, but when they discover it has been damaged, Suzie is forced to use Pendleton's desire for her in order for Mike to return it in time for his important yacht-naming party. The characters collide when Statham is captured by a corrupt African military group, and a hostage situation quickly turns into a game of deceit. But who has a dangerous secret? And what lengths will they go to in order to get their hands on the $250,000 ransom? A fast-paced page-turner from Anthony J Broughton, The Exchange will keep fans of the thriller genre on their toes with each twist and turn.
