Good Grisham novel. Suspense, excitement, well thought-out action. Even though it was very different, it reminded me of The Firm as the main characters are similar and get into trouble not of their making.

Gillian Tett has taken a dry subject: the creation of financial derivatives and related complex financial instruments and how that led to the financial collapse of 2008 and turned it into a gripping whodunit. Well worth reading if you want to understand what really happened.

Very good book, very interesting. Compared to the movie, there is much more background on the day-to-day racism they experienced outside of Langley and much more detail about their work and others they interacted with.

As usual, Major Maxim gets himself into and out of a number of unusual situations - this time commanding an experimental tank (interesting by itself for an infantry officer) caught in a Jordanian Army revolt. Good Gavin Lyall writing throughout.
