Baker & Taylor
Hoping to reorganize after their business goes under, Bannerman and Frito find themselves wasting their Dayton Peace Plan money in the bars and gambling halls of Sarajevo, where they become unwitting bounty hunters in order to impress an attractive woman prosecutor from the war-crimes tribunal. A first novel.

Warm-hearted and wildly funny, The Exchange-Rate Between Love and Money tackles love and war and the brutal costs of both, in all their madness, hilarity, and hurt.
Sarajevo, 2003. Best friends Frito and Bannerman roll into town, still in search of the fortune they missed in the dot-com years; soaking up reconstruction money isn't the worst plan ever. That's before they realise that Clare Leischman, a prosecutor with the international war crimes tribunal, is the best person either of them has ever met, and that they can't both have her as much as they would each, ideally, like.
Meanwhile the city is awash with UN programmes, black marketeers, lawyers, soldiers both salaried and self-employed, poker hustlers, intelligence officers and expat hedonists. And by the time Frito and Bannerman have started bounty-hunting men accused of war crimes, their lives have taken on all the risk, frenzy and emotional upheaval - but very little of the money - that they'd bargained for.
