Review: The Rare Earth Exchange

The Rare Earth Exchange

The Rare Earth Exchange
Bernard Besson

John Larivière, his wife Victoire and their colleague Luc, have been asked by their former bosses at French Intelligence to look into some suspicious activities. Firstly, there has been an aircraft incident at the Paris Orly Airport and at the same time the former President of France has been found dead at his home. Was it suicide or murder? The former President was responsible for setting up the Rare Earth Exchange, a trading center for strategic and rare earth minerals based in Paris and Malaysia. There are fears that it may be somehow connected to his death. But how? In a world where no one seems to trust each other it will be up to John, Victoire and Luc to find out what really happened.

In this, an interesting and complex story, nothing is as it appears and everyone seems suspicious as well as corrupt. It takes place in both Paris and Malaysia, giving readers a glimpse into international scenes of intrigue and mistrust. The pace is fast moving and filled with incident after incident that will keep readers turning the pages. It's a well written, enjoyable espionage thriller with an ending I didn't really expected.

Thanks to Le French Books for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
