Spin Move by David Lender
Fugitive financier John Rudiger has lived a lush life in Antigua for eleven years, but now the local officials are demanding ever more exorbitant payouts to maintain his cover. And since his ex-girlfriend Katie Dolan swindled him out of his last $30 million, Rudiger is on thin ice. Meanwhile, Katie is holed up with her ailing father in Cape Verde, an African paradise conveniently lacking an extradition treaty with the U.S., an idea she took right out of Rudiger’s playbook. Despite the double cross, Rudiger is still hot for Katie, and he knows just where to find her when he decides it’s time to leave Antigua. But with U.S. Attorney Charlie Holden set on catching them both, they’ll have to tread carefully. To make matters worse, Katie’s been sucked in by a dashing, disreputable Swiss banker and has deposited the $30 million right into his hands. Can they get it back and make their escape before it’s too late?
Looking for a light, action filled white collar/finance thriller? As long as you're willing to suspend disbelief for a fun read with likable characters that you can cheer for, Spin Move is a good summer read. It's short though, so you might end up like me, feeling like you could read another hundred pages about John Rudiger and Katie Dolan. Instead of complaining, I'm looking forward to the next David Lender novel and hoping that it'll provide a few days of escape.
