Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Mechanism, by Vladimir Netto, read by Robert G. Slade.

Introduction by Misha Glenny, author of McMafia.

A gripping narrative of power, corruption and greed, The Mechanism is the true story of how a simple investigation into money laundering uncovered the biggest corruption scandal in human history.

When a small team of investigators discovered that a black market currency dealer was operating out of a Brazilian petrol station, they could never have imagined that their work would destroy the government and lead to the impeachment of two presidents. As the trail leads further and further into the centre of power, the search for the truth and pursuit of justice become ever more crucial.

Taut and riveting, with more plot twists than the most compelling political thriller, The Mechanism is an essential work of nonfiction that exposes the rottenness caused when politicians and big businesses believe they are above the law.

A must for anyone living in the developing world.

Amazing tale of enormous corruption and the fight against it by a bold judge. Magnitude of the scheme exposed is mind boggling. An interesting story that is told even more interestingly.

Below Average Experience

Starts well but you feel like you are listening to the same thing over and over and over again. Decided to give up half way, not worth putting in the rest of the time.
