Awesome recounting of the 20+ year theft of Bernie Madoff. Reading this book I really feel sorry for his victims and his wife and sons. I loved the final chapter that explored why con men succeed and why some many of us are striving for easy answers to difficult problems.
Bernie Madoff was a thief, pure and simple, and his crime created many complex legal issues, and Henriques explains them all in a fascinating manner. She removes financial speak from her story and brings together a fabulous story.
