Eichenwald does it again! This journalistic thriller reads like a fiction novel. The scariest part is how it is a true story that Eichenwald documents. What else is still going on? Too scary to think about every day.

This book is outstanding. Reads like a great spy novel with characters you couldn't make up. The corporate crimes are easy to understand (greed is universal) and the author really gets into the heads of all of the players. Fantastic.
