5.0 out of 5 stars More thrilling than a thriller, 11 May 2012
I appreciated this book on two levels: first, as a complete ignoramus about the financial world who finally faced up to the fact that she didn't even know what a hedge fund or derivative was and felt it was time to find out; and second, as a crime fiction reviewer for a national newspaper who thought this tale of greed, deception and double dealing a great deal more thrilling than most of the dross about serial killers she has to plod through. Thank you Mr Loizou for a thoroughly entertaining and illuminating read.

5.0 out of 5 stars best guide, 8 Dec 2004
I read this on the plane going over to BA and it couldn't have been a better introduction. MF writes beautifully and poignantly about a city she cares and worries about. The beleaguered history of Argentina is set against contemporary anecdote and experience and thanks to her I started off at a distinct advantage when I explored the city and later the country.
