Product description

Review

Dan McCrum's deep dive into Wirecard was the financial investigation of the decade. Money Men tells the story from inside Wirecard's headquarters with entertaining drama and verve, but it also unspools the high-stakes reporting process McCrum and his colleagues carried out at the Financial Times against the odds. It instantly enters the canon of great financial crime books. -- Bradley Hope, co-author of New York Times bestseller Billion Dollar Whale Published On: 2022-03-31

A milestone in the history of investigative journalism. -- Olaf Scholz, Chancellor of Germany, awarding the Reporters Forum Reporterpreis Published On: 2020-12-07

Money Men is a rip-roaring ride into the underworld of the global economy. Dan McCrum is a proper reporter: there is no threat, con trick or hangover that will stand in his way. In today's pandemic of lies, courageous journalism like this is the medicine. -- Tom Burgis, Sunday Times bestselling author of Kleptopia Published On: 2022-04-07

This behind-the-scenes look into the years of work and the persistence that was required to topple Wirecard is
nothing short of incredible. ― AltFi Published On: 2022-06-16

A fantastic book. Think of Dan as
a bespectacled James Bond with a keyboard instead of a gun.Steve Clapham, author of The Smart Money Method Published On: 2022-06-16

Wirecard might still be one of Europe's most feted tech firms, were it not for a small band of sceptics - including Dan McCrum... Wirecard fought back viciously and dirtily ... Money Men should be required reading for investors and financial regulators. It is a compelling case study of a seemingly eternal truth: when a business is built on lies, there are always clues. ― Economist Published On: 2022-06-16

The culmination of years of careful investigative work... A gripping tale.Evening Standard Published On: 2022-06-16

A thrilling, head-spinning book... Money Men hugely rewards the reader when you get the scoop alongside McCrum - you are close to punching the air... A fine testament to the importance of quality journalism. ― Irish Times Published On: 2022-07-25

A tale of dogged persistence and no little courage... Anyone, like me, who thinks that the investigative journalist is our only defence against a world run by giant, unaccountable corporations will savour this book.The Tablet Published On: 2022-07-25

A fraud so audacious it took the company's auditor, Ernst & Young, years to believe it... McCrum's account may read like a crime drama, but really it is a testament to old-school reporting... At a time when social media is increasingly causing facts to be regarded as beside the point, it is a reminder that the truth is always worth chasing. ― New Statesman Published On: 2022-07-25

McCrum was more responsible than anyone else for the exposure and eventual collapse of the hugely fraudulent payment company... A cross between the Enron scandal and Rosemary's Baby. -- John Lanchester ― London Review of Books Published On: 2022-07-28

What a wild ride! Going head to head with powerful executives, their teams of lawyers and intelligence operatives, Dan McCrum has uncovered one of the biggest economic scandals in Europe. Money Men reads like a thriller, but it's all true. -- Frederik Obermaier, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and co-author of The Panama Papers Published On: 2022-04-12

Money Men is a rollercoaster read that reveals everything that's wrong with our financial system. Dan McCrum and his colleagues at the FT deserve medals for their tenacious battle to expose the dark heart of Wirecard - the enormous fraud and money laundering machine with shadowy ties. -- Catherine Belton, author of Putin's People Published On: 2022-06-23

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrendous print quality - Penguin are a shambles
By Northern Lad on 10 July 2022
I have never felt the urge to write a review on print quality, but this is so poor. Penguin really need to make an effort in making these hardbacks look clearer and legible. This quality is worse than a third world news paper.
