Format: Paperback
Ken Rijock was a money-launderer in the cocaine blizzard that was Miami in the 1990s. His book is part confession, part beginner's guide. I enjoyed the details of his scams but - as with most legal work - the repetition can get tedious. His descriptions of his fellow-travellers are very, very entertaining and you find yourself rooting for him when it all goes bad.

The occasional false note is sounded when Ken writes about his successes with the ladies. Otherwise this is good holiday reading, better than True Crime magazines but its writing is not to the same standard as The Sink, The Devil's Deal or The Smartest Guys in the Room.

First of all, 3 out of 5 as the book is not so much concentrated on how the writer laundered the money but on the personal journey of this writer during his money laundering days. It's too generalised at times, and quite often lacks details (maybe its due to security and safety) however all is based in early 80s so it carries little relavance to how people do it now, you might just as well read money laundering done in the middle ages and how those criminals dealt with their personal troubles, it fails to do what Franc Lucas the Original Gangster accomplished so well, and that is truly pull you into the story and provide details which add colour to any content you are absorbing. I really enjoy reading about the shady criminal world, but at the end this book was becoming a challenge to read, and wasnt really about the criminal world but about one man personal journey through life, (it was simply not a conservative journey because the guy made a lot of wrong choices), it's very short story as well. It was NOT all bad though, as I mentioned it gives the reader a broader look and reminder that all are human, we all make mistakes and there is never a path from which you can turn away and turn your life around.

Cracking read, very fast pasted and very interesting. Real eye opener into the world of money Laundering in the 1980`s. Read it from cover to cover within a day,could not put it down. Pick up a copy you wont regret it.

Format: Paperback
The title is great, the cover design suitable, but the content is dreary. Only an accountant could possibly find this book exciting. Despite Mr Rijock's best efforts to put some excitement into his narrative, the people he meets are thinly drawn cutouts, his thoughts on events are banal and unilluminating and nothing much happens. This is the sort of airport book that you end up abandoning on the plane - whether fully read or unfinished.

I thought this book was excellent, particularly being a true story about the lawyer turned money launderer. Fast moving, as detailed as it could be, well written. I recommend to others.
