first Michener book I read. Lead me to many, many more, including Chesapeake, Centenniel, Poland, and many many others. Most of his novels have the capacity to make the location a character. You meet and learn about the place, and then, the people who inhabit it over a long period of time. A great way to enjoy and leave today and learn (almost by osmosis). Love his books!
LA Law meets The Godfather in the most talked about thriller of the year. A Harvard Law graduate joins a wealthy tax firm, only to find out it is owned by the most powerful Mob family in Chicago, and that they're laundering vast sums of money through dummy corporations around the world. And the FBI is pressuring him to become their informant . . . but perhaps there is one way out.
