Book Description

Meet Steven Hunter. A British policeman, he has been seconded to the FBI. When a corpse is found in Montana with a human femur driven through the top of its skull, it is beyond the capabilities of the local police. Hunter is assigned to the case. But someone doesn’t want him to solve it.

Hunter faces the deadliest test of his career – how to catch a killer while staying one step ahead of the most powerful forces on earth, and staying alive himself.

In this enthralling thriller, part conspiracy, part manhunt, and part sci-fi, Tom Kasey has woven a gripping story that takes the reader right into the innermost workings of government – and reveals the dark secrets that lurk within.

Trade-Off is perfect for fans of Dan Brown, Robert Harris and Clive Cussler.

“I was gripped from the very first word. This is thrilling stuff.” – James Becker, best-selling author of The Nosferatu Scroll.

“A knock-out thriller. Trade-Off will blow you away.” – Matt Lynn, best-selling author of Death Force and Fire Force.

Tom Kasey is a pseudonym for a well-known thriller writer responsible for a series of best-sellers.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay read November 27, 2012

Kasey's first book, Alpha Threat is a much better book. It is probably the style in which each is written that makes the difference.

Pretty far fetched but held my interest enough that I felt compelled to finish it. It was a struggle thought.

1.0 out of 5 stars reasonable crime thrller, but November 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The first three quarters of the storyline had the
Makings of a very good crime thriller. Then with
The introduction of the Alien/Sci/Fill theme, the
Whole novel became unbelievable and as far as I was
Concerned was no longer worth reading. Initially,
A good plot, but could have been more realistic
in the latter stages!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trade Off April 19, 2012

Loved this book. The characters Steven Hunter and Sheriff Dick Reilly have great rapport. I am hoping that the author has another book in the offing using these same persons. Surprise ending which I did not see coming. Ending certainly gives the reader something to think about.

1.0 out of 5 stars STOOOPIDEST book I've read in years!!!! December 9, 2013
By Dog Mom
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This could have been a good book but....after a very promising beginning, I kept turning pages to see what would happen, only to reach the 2/3 mark when I screeched WHF!!!!!! Oy, just the idea that our government could keep a secret like this or 50 years is ludicrous. Jeez, they can't even design a website that works! I only managed to finish this mess by skimming, and skipping A LOT!

The "author" should go through this mess and re-spell words the American way - every time I encountered another Britishism, it stopped me cold and....Americans use cell phones, not mobiles. I think it was Reilly who mentioned that early in the book but, the "author" just went along having everyone use their mobiles. Typical of sloppy self-publishing.
