I liked this better than the original Panama Papers book (also here on audible). The previous book was rather preoccupied with the experiences and fears of a couple of reporters. This one ranges further, with ease. It is colorfully told, with not only nuts and bolts of deals, but personalities and locations neatly described, and broader histories, with more background, into the laws and concepts behind the surfaces we see. This sort of business spans Fortune 100 firms, wealthy folks seeking privacy for understandable reasons, pretty dire international criminals, and everything in between. There are many dimensions to all this, and this work moves fluently from one to another. As it turns out, the regions, governments and cultures have their own points of view, and all this is deftly captured here. The author's narration is not shining, but serviceable enough.

What a compelling book. Bernstein helps one understand the complex legal, but unethical, and then also illegal and unethical revelations in the Panama papers and other leaked documents that have enabled a group of intrepid reporters to expose how the rich get richer and the rest of us not only get poorer, but likely are funding their corruption. Highly recommend!
