The Trade Mission has been selected as a Top Ten Best Books of the Year by The Toronto Star
The Trade Mission is Andrew Pyper’s much-anticipated second novel. It was published in Canada by HarperFlamingo and in the U.K. by Macmillan in 2002, and in the United States by Scribner and elsewhere in early 2003.
The Trade Mission follows Wallace and Bates, two twenty-four year old overnight millionaires on their journey to Brazil — one that starts in the name of globalized business, and ends in a terrifying struggle for individual survival.
“[The Trade Mission] is a sombre portrait of men and women under the most intense psychological and physical pressure. It packs a mean punch – and some rude surprises…A wonderfully twisted updating of James Dickey’s Deliverance, this one will grip you.”
