KIRKUS REVIEW

Fleming's .007 would be hard put to crack the case of Tino De Angelis. He gold fingered one of the greatest confidence coups in the history of Wall Street. Miller, a Wall Street Journal reporter, who won a Pulitzer for the articles on which this book is based, reconstructs the great salad oil swindle and follows De Angelis from his start killing hogs in the Bronx to the days when he brought down Bears in the Street and caused the U.S. economy to slip and slide around on non-existent soybean oil. Anything to do with finance is usually so stupefyingly dull. This one isn't.
