Publisher's Summary

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.

Erdman sets the standard for financial thrillers and Campanella's reading was excellent.I hope to see more of both on Audible.
