Top positive review
Spectacular reporting that reads like a fast-paced thriller
Reviewed in the United States on November 26, 2017
Secrecy World pulls back the curtain on international criminal - or what should be criminal - tax evasion (oh, sorry, I mean tax avoidance) and the corrupt industries that make it possible. The book is focused through the lens of the blockbuster reporting of the Panama Papers, the enormous leak of internal documents from a Panamanian law firm, so we get the inside view from the trenches of international investigative journalism as well. It's a great read, incredibly detailed and full of can't-make-this-stuff-up characters and plots - my hat's off to Mr. Bernstein for weaving it together as a page-turner that kept me up late reading, and reaching for more first thing in the morning. Remarkable!
