Rating: 4.8 Stars

Price: $0.99

Daniel Youngblood is a world-weary oil and gas investment banker who’s ready to hit the beach, when he’s hired by a Saudi Prince for an OPEC deal where he can net himself $25 million as a swan song. At the same time, he meets and falls in love with Lydia, an exotic European fashion photographer, who he later discovers is really CIA-trained spy with a shocking past with the Saudi Prince. She convinces Daniel to enlist in what becomes a race for the lovers to stop a Muslim terrorist internet plot to bring down the Saudi royal family and cripple the world’s oil capacity, all before they wind up dead.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This is a big, sweeping book, with lots of action and passion spread out all over the world. It has big stakes, but also emotionally involving characters you care about. Don’t plan any appointments for after you’ve gotten to the last half of the novel; you won’t keep them.

*******

This thriller from a new author is as well-conceived, cleverly plotted and artfully written as any on the list of Thrillers: 100 Must-Reads. The characters are complex and real, the story is scintillating and the tension makes you want to keep turning pages. Not to mention the love story that will makes you root for the heroes to win for their own sakes, not just to stop the bad guys.

Read Trojan Horse on my mac in two days on the plane on a Boston/SF out and back. Great, gripping thriller. Good pace, plotting and great characters. Accurate world created in high finance (I’m an investment banker, so’s the author). Really satisfying, chilling, fun, thrilling. And I read almost exclusively thrillers and romance. This has both, big time. It holds its own with the best out there.

About The Author


David Lender writes thrillers set in the financial sector based on his over 25 year career as a Wall Street investment banker. He draws on an insider’s knowledge from his career in mergers and acquisitions with Merrill Lynch, Rothschild and Bank of America for the international settings, obsessively driven personalities and real-world financial intrigues of his novels. His characters range from David Baldacci-like corporate power brokers to Elmore Leonard-esque misfits and scam artists. His plots reveal the egos and ruthlessness that motivate the players in the financial sector, as well as the inner workings of the most powerful of our financial institutions.

David began writing novels over ten years ago. At one point a friend sent his first novel to a prominent New York literary agent, whose reaction was, “Not bad for somebody who doesn’t know what he’s doing yet.” She introduced David to a seasoned thriller editor and publisher who had edited Robert Ludlum’s first nine thrillers; David spent the next 18 months working with him to learn his craft.

Trojan Horse, his international espionage thriller, is currently available as an Amazon Kindle Edition.
