A Gripping Thriller

Russell Blake's "Fatal Exchange" was a thrill ride that gripped me from the first chapter. The plot twists and turns and keeps you guessing.

It begins with a watch dealer who sells a million dollars worth of watches to an Asian businessman. When it turns out the bills are counterfeit the game is on. The counterfeiters, a foreign government,  realize some less than perfect bills are out and they want them back before anyone knows they exist.  Enter the Asian hit team.

Tess, a bicycle courier, is the daughter of the watch dealer and when her father is murdered and the bodies start stacking up she realizes she's probably next.

Throw in a serial killer that is targeting female bike messengers and you have one more twist in the plot.  Blake ties it all together brilliantly in a turn you won't see coming. 

The characters are quirky and fun.  It's a definite must read.  I for one, can't wait to read more of Blake's novels.
