    3. I am a devoted fan of Le French Book I read everything that they translate from French into English Everything is usually good and interesting mystery books I am always aware that I am reading a translation and not the original text.That said I was slightly disappointed in The Rare Earth Exchange The core idea is interesting and very complicated The characters have to do a lot of explaining in their dialogues That s ok with me, I am usually interested in the interaction of the characters and th [...]

    4. This French thriller has been ably translated and while mostly set in France, does head off to Malaysia for the later part of the story I had previously read The Greenland Breach by this author and some of the same characters reoccur To start with a jet coming in from Malaysia is unfortunate to download a virus and explodes at the Paris airport This scene is well written to involve us and show how ruthless the criminals are A former French premier has been found hanging in his attic His widow, o [...]

    7. Beginning with an opening scene that is taut and exceedingly believable, The Rare Earth Exchange is a thriller perfect for our time Filled with duplicitous units and government entities, it s hard to keep the players straight Once again Le French Book has translated an exciting book into English and allowed an entirely new audience to experience the pleasures of this material It is a joy to read and impossible to put down I received my copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

    8. Borrowed from Publisher NetGalley for an honest reviewThe plot was interesting at times but it was slow moving Plus the story tells everything instead of letting it unfold.

    9. The plane s antivirus program froze the download for thirty seconds and then authorized installation The plane lands at Orly Airport, and then explodes Other planes explode, the terminal is on fire, many lives are lost The former French president, President Pierre Andr Noblecourt, should have been on that plane His survival is short lived he is found dead at his home did he commit suicide, or was he murdered How are these events connected The former president had been responsible for establishin [...]

    10. I wanted to like this book I tried to like it It is a very good story Lots of action and intrigue But I simply couldn t enjoy it enough to finish it I got 52% of the way through, so I did give it a fair chance I m not really sure why I disliked it enough to bail on it which is something I rarely do and it always hurts my book loving heart when I do it So it s not a decision I take lightly It is translated from French and I did find the many, many references to locations in Paris everything from [...]

    11. 4 and 1 2 StarsThis book is very well written, and the translation is excellent The characters are believable and have depth The opening scene is horrific and all too real in today s world A plane incoming to Orly airport has downloaded a virus that causes a fire and much devastation and death The retired president of France, Pierre Andre Noblecourt, is returning from Kuala Lumpur having visited his son in law Was he on the plane that crashed Or was he not The employees of Fermatown, Victoire Au [...]

    12. Although I admire the complex high tech convolutions, I don t really enjoy the challenge of trying to follow them.

    13. I received this book free from the publisher through NetGalley I thank them for their generousity In exchange, I was simply asked to write an honest review, and post it The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising There s going to be blood on the steps of the Palais de Justice The search for truth isn t off to a good start Victoire Augagneu [...]

    14. John Larivi re, his wife Victoire and their colleague Luc, have been asked by their former bosses at French Intelligence to look into some suspicious activities Firstly, there has been an aircraft incident at the Paris Orly Airport and at the same time the former President of France has been found dead at his home Was it suicide or murder The former President was responsible for setting up the Rare Earth Exchange, a trading center for strategic and rare earth minerals based in Paris and Malaysia [...]

    15. Freelance spies John Spencer Laviviere and his partners Victorie his wife , and Luc are called into an investigation by the government when a plane explodes upon landing at Orly Along the way they find corruption that is than just the usual suspects I was sucked into this story from the beginning It is a page turner I wanted to know what was happening There is a lot of technology in this story but it was easy to understand I never felt lost as I was following the clues to the culprit It is impo [...]

    16. I have always enjoyed the publications of Le French Book and this is no exception Following a terrorist cyber attack on an aircraft at Orly airport in Paris and the subsequent death of a former French president, the private investigation intelligence company Fermatown is hired by the French Government to find out who is responsible This is the second novel for the Fermatown team, it revolves around the very lucrative market trading of rare earth elements used in high tech industries, and the cor [...]

    17. Bernard Besson created a believable story with a final spectacular finish He did this by making over half the characters greedy and without a conscious taking bribes in working with the military When they were not suppose to by a law on the books of France Our heroes John, Victoria and Luc were hired to fine who killed the past president of France I won t say who helped him because that would give it away and you d be surprised But people who should be punished end up going free or without the f [...]

    18. All the ingredients of a great book compelling characters, suspense, terrorism, high level government corruption and a great plot, are combined with some really off beat elements to create a story that will stay with you One of the characters is a ten year old girl, who is wise beyond her years She provides a dose of wisdom and morality, and a surprise at the end The elements of the plot involve some very high tech features of the corruption proof exchange for minerals used in production of mode [...]

    19. I received this via Netgalley for review.There is a lot of action, suspense and misdirection A tale twisted and folded in ways that almost confuse It certainly makes one think I liked the international intrigue, the cat and mouse play between Victoire and Montluzac The wisp of a girl Beatrice is unquestionably a force to be reckoned with This is a story that might be taken right out of today s headlines

    20. A convoluted story that starts with the attempted assassination of a former French president, resulting in several hundred collateral deaths at the Charles DeGaulle airport Add in a very suspicious suicide, and you have a real head scratcher How a team of independent investigators sort thru a lot of dead ends, and detours to determine exactly who did what to whom makes for an interesting story The ending, though, is a bit iffy.

    21. ARCThis book was quite a page turner It takes a lot for a book to surprise me, and this one did Rare Earth Exchange is a modern day French thriller set in Paris, but reaches throughout Asia It has science, politics, betrayal, lust, experimental weaponry, good detecting work, and pretty much everything a good book needs If you are a fan of Clive Cussler, you will love these Fermatown novels as well.

    22. The beginning of this book was awesome One of the best openings on a thriller I ve read After that it settled into a solid thriller I enjoyed the fast pace, the hacking aspect seemed realistic, and the setting, who doesn t like Paris I would definitely look for by this author.

    23. Interesting plot, not always easy to follow, probably because of the translation style The flow is a bit jerky at times, but I would guess the translator stayed with the French structures as closely as she could, which I very much appreciate The premise behind the plot is fascinating.
