On a routine visit to an international bank in Switzerland, recently retired Federal Reserve Chairman Charles Black finds himself suddenly and inexplicable jailed by Swiss police. They accuse him of perpetrating massive financial frauds and the case against him seems open-and-shut. Although he's been framed, Charlie and his wife Sally realize that he has no chance of avoiding a 30-year sentence of hard labor in a Swiss prison.

But suddenly a mysterious Italian offers to engineer Charlie's escape for $3 million, which Sally gladly pays. What she doesn't realize is that the stranger is in cahoots with the people who framed Charlie, and the troubles she thought were ending have only just begun.

    " I rarely refuse to finish a book, but this one is an exception. I read 40% of it and it was excrutiatingly boring. All about high finance yadayadayada and gold diggers yadayadayada. And you very quickly know who the bad guys are. Not recommended! "

    " This book was very John Grisham/Dan Brown-esque. The first half was way over my head with all of the financial jargon-a lot of it, but once I got through all of that I was very in to the story and was excited to see how the story turned out. "

    " thoroughly enjoyed financial details "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janyse | 6/12/2012

    " I enjoyed this financial thriller...from the title you get the gist that someone is "set-up" to take the fall for the white collar crime of embezzling. First needing to escape foreign powers, he then sets out to clear his name and find those who set him up. Fast read.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 6/6/2012

    " Very good, suspenseful, fast paced book. I did ask myself, what would have I done if I was held in prison in a foreign country for a crime I didn't commit. "

    " Fun page turner, with lots of ugly details about the Swiss banking system, and the Swiss more generally. The plot is a little thin, but its still a good escape. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alejandro Teruel | 2/22/2011

    " Definitely not one of his better efforts. The financial angle is ok, if a little thin, the characters limp along, as does the plot which is very predictable. Lots of boring details about how to get from town A to town B and do we really have to know what the main characters had for every meal? "

    " So bad so very very bad. Everyone is a stereotype, poor plotting, and unrealistic in the extreme. "
