Reviews For Foreign Exchange

Foreign Exchange 5.0

This droll, tongue-in-cheek thriller has its charms, notably Smith’s deadpan wit and his mostly solid moral compass. Espionage fans should find this a pleasant diversion.

Publishers Weekly

Foreign Exchange 5.0

Breathlessly paced, wickedly funny, with a naughty, but hilarious climax.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Foreign Exchange 5.0

Consistently Funny.

Kirkus Reviews

Foreign Exchange 5.0

Sangster's light-hearted approach gives the novel sprightly animation. The startling twist in the very last sentence is as ironic as it is unexpected.

The Pittsburgh Press

Foreign Exchange 5.0

Humorous, exciting, and unpredictable. A well-written adventure.
