Having worked as a bookkeeper for too many years I have witnessed and seen corruption in the business and financial world. They are cut-throat. I have always heard a rumor that there is a group of people that call the shots--all of them. Do I believe this--YES. Although this is a novel I found it all to believable.
This novel will make you stop and wonder what really goes on in the world of finance and if it does affect our governments and what happens to our economies.
A great read and a very believable conspiracy theory-at least to me.
