Very strange and dark story about a man Paul Leroux who used his coding knowledge to eventually set himself up as some kind of barbarian drug kingpin I am impressed at the massive amount of reporting that went into this story over several years Despite that it was not really my favorite There is lots of blow by blow of this complicated and disturbing criminal plot but not much reflection on what it all means for our society and the human conditionMy own takeaway is that Leroux was a disturbed man who was completely enslaved to his passions Like a crazed colonial official from a Joseph Conrad novel he exploited the weak institutions of third world countries to live as a man outside of any legal or moral constraint The violence and depravity of his organization was completely gratuitous In the end he only got caught because it didn t seem like he cared about getting caughtIf you like true crime books you will like this one I give it three stars out of respect to the years of grueling reporting that went into it I feel however that the inevitable movie about Leroux based on this book will be entertaining
