The book starts with Jonas Dumar, a real estate agent, being accused of the murder of his business partner who, it seems, was swindling the business, although it also seems that Jonas was doing that too. Jonas says he did not commit the murder. His lawyer is incompetent, or so Jonas thinks, so he decides to flee, but cannot help but stop off for some violent sex with the woman he intended to marry. He takes to sea accompanied only by his dog Sam. The boat was purchased under an assumed name and he has a passport under that name. The boat was well-stocked with non-perishable food and he has a sack stuffed full of Benjamin Franklins. The story then is that of a lone sea voyage, at least for a while, until he takes Gabriel and Isabel on as passengers to cross the Atlantic. Nothing is then as it seems. Physically, nothing much happens, but as regards Jonas's psyche, just abut everything does.

"Exit Strategy" by L.F. Falconer combines adult language, aberrant sexual fixations and palpable tension into a unique story that is definitely not for the faint of heart. It is not really a thriller, and difficult to describe without spoiling the story, but it is well-written and the words fly.
