review

A thriller taking place in the Swiss world of finance (but it could be any Western country). Very readable and the background facts check out, as is to be expected from this author (I praise his book "Small World"). I don't mind the ending, which seems a bit fantastic, but it might actually be plausible. I can't forgive the beginning though, where the protagonist stumbles upon the evil mystery per random chance - which is okay, once. He stumbles into two coincidences, both of which are highly unlikely. For one of them, someone even  mentions it's on in millions. I can't believe that there wasn't a better solution for this plot to get started.
