Description

Sarajevo, 2003. Best friends Frito and Bannerman roll into town, still in search of the fortune that narrowly eluded them in the dotcom years; soaking up a huge dose of Reconstruction Money isn t the worst plan they ve ever come up with. That s before they realise that Clare Leischman, a prosecutor with the international war crimes tribunal, is the best girl either of them has ever met, and that they can t both have her as much as they would each, ideally, like. Meanwhile the city is awash with UN programmes, black marketeers, lawyers, soldiers both salaried and self-employed, poker hustlers, private enterprise initiatives, Machiavellian intelligence officers, and expat hedonists all high on Dayton money. And by the time our fortune-hunters have become actual soldiers of fortune, bounty-hunting men accused of war crimes, their own lives have taken on all the risk, craziness, and emotional upheaval, and very little of the money, that they d bargained for. The Exchange-Rate Between Love and Money is a dysfunctional love story told hand-in-hand with stories of Sarajevan heroism and how the international justice business does, or doesn t, work. A brilliantly original and funny new
