I must say, however, that the author’s attempt to intertwine faith felt forced. Although Alex’s faith was more or less in keeping with her character throughout the story, as the book neared its conclusion it seemed that a disproportionate number of characters were suddenly devout Christians.
That said, I expect that if you enjoy a crime thriller with a touch of romantic suspense, you may well find yourself turning pages way into the night.

This book captures the reader's attention from the first chapter and spins a tale of love, strength and perseverance from that point forward. The main character, Alexandra Callet is an independent business woman who, due to her resemblance to an assassin's sister, is asked by the Drug Enforcement Agency to help with a case. As the story unfolds, additional vibrant characters emerge to sufficiently entertain and engage the reader. The training that Alexandra goes through to go undercover is actually very informative, as I had no idea of the involvement behind the scenes of such an assignment. While I am sure this only touched the surface of what it would really be like to take on such work, there is enough detail to seem realistic and hold your attention.
What I like most about this book is the continual line-up of interesting and unique characters with enough development of each one to feel a level of connection that goes beyond the surface. That is difficult to pull off in a short novel like this, but Derban does it. The sense of "what will happen next" is a dominating feeling throughout the read and therefore another excellent job by the author.
Finally, while this is not officially labeled a "Christian" genre book, the author has definitely utilized her platform to point to Christ through some of the thoughts and actions of the main characters. There are several times in the book where they pray, read the Bible and reference their reliance on Christ for strength and wisdom. It's not overbearing...just a hint of grace and wisdom poking through...I loved that.
Uneven Exchange by S.K. Derban is a wonderful book to throw in your suitcase and read on a weekend get-away or.....simply step outside into the shade of your own backyard and travel with the crew to Mexico! You will definitely enjoy this read!!
My anticipation in waiting for the release of “Uneven Exchange” was not in vain! Again, the characters, story plot, action, suspense, mystery, and romance had me captivated at every turn...Alexandra’s Faith and strength of character were such an inspiration! Such an enjoyable book to read…Being a native of (very:)) Southern California, I was delighted to have been familiar with the settings and events intertwined throughout the book…I appreciate wholeheartedly that any book written by S.K. Derban will be decent and in good taste; Always reflecting Christ’s truth in love….
