The author seems knowledgable enough but he gets lost in the weeds. There are just scores of details about whose brother-in-law works at which lobbying firm. This is not a book of intrigue and crime. It is much closer to an encyclopedia of mid-level bribes.
As for the performance, the narrator is great except when he reads quotes from Americans and rolls out an ridiculous America accent. I just couldnt take it seriously.

This book was filled with excellent research and in depth explanations of states and individual actors involved in the arms trade. The layout of the book was good starting with corporations and then working towards individual leaders and arms dealers. There are some digs at personal character that are a bit unfounded or unnecessary, but nothing like say in a similar tell all, The Way of the Knife.
Personally, I prefer a British narrarator, but I was not a fan of the attempted American or Texan accents specifically.
