Amsterdam in the 1690s - a boom town with Europe's biggest stock exchange and traders who will stop at nothing to get even richer.

Lienzo, a Portugese Jew, stumbles across a new commodity - coffee - which, if he plays his cards right, will make him the richest man in Holland. But others stand in his way - rival traders who do all in their power to confuse the exchange and scupper his plans, his brother who is jealous of his financial wizardry and even his brother's beautiful wife who both tempts and spurns him in equal measure.

Liss has again produced a compelling complex and well-constructed tale... David Liss is a writer to look out for. - HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW

This engrossing book isn't short but, even so, you'll be tempted to read it in one sitting. - MORNING STAR

There are twists and turns aplenty as the plot thickens and moves towards an unexpected conclusion. - GOOD BOOK GUIDE

THE COFFEE TRADER is an absorbing and suspenseful tale of risk and revenge. As stimulating as its subject. - LIVERPOOL DAILY POST
