Reviews

'A ghastly and very important story'
Guardian

'A meticulously reported piece of investigative journalism written in the style of a fast-paced thriller ... Gripping ... Kleptopia is not a far away republic in central Asia; it is all around us'
The Times

'I don't do book reviews. But I am reading Kleptopia very slowly as I have to keep picking my jaw up off the floor ... Fascinating. Terrifying'
Paul Lewis

'A must-read for anyone wanting to better understand what has already happened here in America and what lies ahead if Trump is reelected in November ... A magisterial account of the money and violence behind the world's most powerful dictatorships ... Meticulously reported'
Washington Post

'The architects of our national security would do well to bring to their meetings a well-thumbed copy ... It unpicks the filthy flipside of globalisation ... Incendiary'
Edward Lucas, The Times

'Does the job brilliantly ... with a hero straight out of a John le Carre novel ... Wonderfully if grimly entertaining'
Economist

'His landmark book he lays bare what we need to know, and act upon ... Burgis provides us with the terrifying evidence. Read it and act'
Jon Snow

'Read Kleptopia now. There is no time to lose ... Tom Burgis demonstrates that money does indeed stink - and shows how to follow its scent'
Roberto Saviano

'A powerful, appalling, and stunningly reported expose ... It reads like fiction, but unfortunately is all too true: Burgis names names, and follows the money, right into the Trump White House ... Shows how dark money has grown from a national problem into an international scourge'
Jane Mayer

'Reveals exactly why in the last thirty years organised crime and financial capitalism have fused to create a force of such power that no government or leader is free from the pressure it is able to apply ... When you pick this book up, you won't be able to put it down'
Misha Glenny
