International thriller featuring John Cann, former military and intelligence operative, now senior associate with the law firm of Loring, Matsen, and Gould, attorneys to the Washington, DC intelligence community. Cann's principled disagreement with the President of the United States results in his exile of sorts to a small southern law school expecting nothing more than a year's sabbatical as visiting scholar in a bucolic and thoughtful environment. Not only does he find that academia is not the bastion of tolerance and reason that it works so hard to portray itself as, but his own past and present come into play as events cross the Atlantic and span the world only to come back to roost in a spiral of intrigue, terrorism, mystery, and violence that affect both the very innocent and the very guilty. "Bargained for Exchange" defines and sets the standard for what a hero in the 21st century is - or should be. It's Clancy meets Grisham and Dirk Pitt� with a law degree.

Meet the Author
James Macomber is the author of the international legal thrillers featuring former Special Forces/NSA/CIA operator, now lawyer, John Cann — whom Booklist described as a “strong, multi-layered protagonist with the star power to keep this series going for a very long time”. But it's more than just Cann. Macomber's books feature an ensemble cast of memorable characters centering on the 'players' at a Washington DC international law firm with very close ties to the intelligence community. Notable among them is Katherine Price, also a lawyer with a past, hers in counter-terror at the Department of Justice and the State Department.
In novels that reflect and often predict actual events, “Bargained for Exchange” dealt with terrorists in academia, “Art & Part”, assassinations in the Netherlands during the trial of the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie bombers, and “A Grave Breach”, with atrocities, international organized crime and human trafficking against the backdrop of the Bosnian war crimes trials. It was in “A Grave Breach”, that the character of Katherine Price was introduced and she became, in fact, the hero of the novel. By popular demand, she and John get together in “Sovereign Order” where they attend the Monaco Grand Prix and risk losing everything to a horrifying WMD attack on the “crown jewel of formula Grand Prix racing”.
And soon to come is “Extraordinary Rendition” which asks — and perhaps even answers — the question. “How far will the President of the United States go to alter the balance of the United States Supreme Court?
