Secret Empires is a fascinating, detailed read about corruption and greed. It is densely packed with facts, so is not a quick read. It's incredibly researched and well worth reading.

Very enlightening and shocking that government officials can get away with those kinds of things and the American public doesn't find out till after the fact.
