Description: On a routine visit to an international bank in Switzerland, Charles Black, the just-retired Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, finds himself in jail - suddenly, inexplicably, imprisoned by the Swiss police. He is accused of committing massive frauds in the financial markets, allegedly netting him over $450 millon. The case against him seems ironclad - almost too perfect. It is nearly certain that he will be convicted and will spend thirty years doing hard labor in a Swiss prison. He has been framed - set up. Charlie's wife, Sally, in her efforts to find diplomatic support and effective legal defense for him, is frustrated at every turn. No one in Switzerland or the United States seems able - or even willing - to help. But neither Charlie nor Sally will give up; they will not agree to a proposal of a lesser prison term in exchange for his pleading guilty. Then, one evening, a mysterious stranger offers Sally a deal. Gradually, and in colorful detail, we learn why and how Charlie was framed and what he and Sally must do to uncover and expose the financial conspiracy that has set him up. And what they learn launches them, at virtually a moment's notice, on an exciting but dangerous journey, one they hope will lead to Charlie's freedom and clear his name.
