Financial Times and Economist Book of the Year

‘Shows how much money and global influence is concentrated in the hands of a tiny group . . . Remarkable . . . As the authors roam from oilfield to wheatfield, they reveal information so staggering you almost gasp’ Sunday Times

‘A globe-spanning corporate thriller, full of intrigue and double dealing . . . Changes how we see the world, often in horrifying ways’ Spectator

‘A rich archive of ripping yarns . . . The high level narrative is gripping enough. But it is the details of what these freewheeling companies actually got up to that give the book a thriller-like quality’ Financial Times

‘Some of the stories could be straight out of John le Carre. The difference is they’re true’ Andrew Neil
