British citizen Tom Pascoe, left in debt by his vindictive ex-wife, devises a scheme to forge travelers checks. Tom enlists the aid of beautiful Samantha and the two accomplices set out to get rich.
Tom and Sam become romantically involved while devising and carrying out their clever plan and enjoy each other's company along with European travel, delicious meals, and intimate interludes.
The characters in this book are rather two-dimensional but the forging scheme is well-described and fascinating. As with most schemes, however, things don't go totally as planned. The British authorities soon become aware that something is amiss and suspense builds as the police begin to pursue the miscreants.
Will Tom and Sam get away with the loot? You'll have to read the book to find out.
