Late one evening, journalist Bastian Obermayer receives an anonymous message offering him access to secret data. Through encrypted channels, he then receives documents disclosing how the president of Argentina has cloistered millions of dollars of state money for private use. This is just the beginning.
Obermayer and fellow Süddeutsche journalist Frederik Obermaier find themselves immersed in the secret world where complex networks of shell companies help the super-rich to hide their money.
