Praise in US Publisher's Weekly for Tower of Basel, following great endorsements from Liaquat Ahamed, Harold James and Edward Lucas.
"LeBor exposes the wheeling, dealing and often nefarious activities of global investment bankers. [A] lively account...the historical and contemporary power of the secretive BIS will surprise and alarm readers."
Praise in US Publisher's Weekly for The Geneva Option, following great endorsements from Alan Furst, Charles Cumming, Olen Steinhauer and A.D. Miller.
"British journalist LeBor introduces brilliant and beautiful Yael Azoulay, a behind-the-scenes negotiator for the United Nations in his gripping debut thriller...those looking for a strong heroine in the mould of Lisbeth Salander will be satisfied."
Starred review in US Booklist for The Geneva Option:
"This thriller's prologue is a small masterpiece in...terror. The rest of the book fulfills the prologue's promise in ways completely credible, and thus, even scarier...Scene after scene of heart-clenching suspense in Africa, Switzerland and New York. Must read."
