Independence Day: Debut Spy Thriller Ignites Discovery of Lost Secrets
July 03, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsWashington, D.C. — Some will read it for the action and intrigue, some for the technology, and others for fun. However, Deadly Exchange, by Vancouver-based American author Geoffrey M. Gluckman (www.geoffreygluckman.com), offers much more than all of these. A riveting espionage adventure that spans the globe, the novel unfolds within the walls of corporate America. It takes you back to the roots of America and propels you into the near future of a technological nightmare.
“Ultimately, the story reveals a treasure that no government can deprive of any citizen,” states Gluckman, who drew from his experience as a federal agent and exercise physiologist.
In a time of terror threats, enhanced security, and diminishing freedoms, Deadly Exchange (www.deadlyexchangethenovel.com) strikes at the heart of the keys to that founded a great nation. A perfect choice for the Fourth of July and the birth of a country.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."
Considered by some as the most famous words in the history of democracy, these words contain forgotten truths about the United States of America. They represent a creed of which all Americans can be proud. They are part of the preamble to one of the most impressive documents ever written, the Declaration of Independence. They also adorn the marble walls that surround the magnificent statue of their author, Thomas Jefferson, located in Washington, D.C.
In Deadly Exchange, the main character, Jennifer Chance, a world-renowned motivational speaker, visits the Jefferson Memorial several times, looking for inspiration for her emancipation from a corporate position where nothing is what it seems. Only weeks remain before Lectures And More, Inc., a company representing the world’s top motivational speakers, launches its latest technological advance: a mind-altering radio frequency device sold as a work-site enhancement product. The deceptively altruistic Ulrich Rogers spearheads the company and its reeducation programs, incorporating the presentational prowess and charm of Miss Chance, who is on the brink of realizing some deep secrets, ones that certain people in power do not want her to know.
Jennifer alone holds the key to unveil Rogers’s plot to hold America hostage using Lectures And More’s newest device. Plunged into a twisting chase to escape the clutches of Rogers and his former espionage henchmen, Jennifer seeks help from Frank Revere, an enigmatic former government counterintelligence agent. But the question of who to trust continues to dangle in Jennifer’s mind, and a deeper deception lurks in the shadows …
“[Deadly Exchange] can change how you look at your boss, your job, even your life,” says one corporate employee, who wished to remain anonymous.
