An easy read but not convincing
on 25 January 2015
Easily read, and so, to a limited extent, the book was fairly enjoyable. However, at best the plot was somewhat far-fetched and at worst contrived, with several stereotypical characters who simply did not fully convince. Surprisingly, given the author's former career within Swiss banking, this secretive financial industry's inner workings were painted using only broad, impressionistic brush strokes. A more detailed approach might have helped make the story more believable. Not the author's best work.
