THE PANAMA PAPERS is an explosive story with immediate and ongoing consequences, that strikes at the heart of the biggest themes of our times; income inequality, cyber-crime and hacking, and corrupt power-brokers manipulating world governments and big business. The inside story of the Panama Papers is the first new millennium international crime saga; a nexus of corruption, power, liberty, civic action, terror and espionage, told both globally and intimately, because it's based on real, exclusive contact with the people involved at the deepest level.
“The Panama Papers” is a lively and level-headed exposé, but it’s also a moral inquiry into how the top echelon is now united, structurally and spiritually, in robbing the rest of us blind. ” – Variety
“'The Panama Papers' serves as a reminder of the important work reporters do in fighting abuses of power and the way that work is evolving in an increasingly fractured global landscape.” – The LA Times
