Book Recommendation - The Broker

I am a sucker for thrillers, particularly ones that involve politics and technology. Although I have gotten rather tired of the "lawyer as hero" and the plot holes in Grisham's novels, the cover blurb for "The Broker" sounded interesting enough to invest the bucks.

As a bonus, you get to learn a little Italian, a fair bit about Bologna, and you need to ignore the technology as a mix of the improbable and the out of date.

"The Broker" is a fast paced story, the writing style is terse, and it is an easy read. It definitely makes me want to go back to Northern Italy. A great way to spend an afternoon.
