As vivid and tense as a John Grisham novel, as pictorial as Mission Impossible II, The Informant resembles a fine Chinese puzzle, always hiding one more layer. The plot snaps out a you like a half-starved viper: Within a major American corporation, a senior executive has been serving as a secret government informant. His covert tapes record incontrovertible of a vast international criminal conspiracy. But just when the FBI is about to snap on the cuffs, they receive scalding news: Their star snitch is a champion embezzler. Apparently for years he's been siphoning millions of dollars from the company and transferring the loot overseas. Before the last twist, the C.I.A., political heavy-weights, botched crimes, suicide attempts, acts of extortion, and courtroom surprises have flared past our line of sight. Riveting.
