From the winners of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting

11.5 million documents sent through encrypted channels. The secret records of 214,000 offshore companies. The largest data leak in history.

In early 2015, an anonymous whistle-blower led investigative journalists Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier into the shadow economy where the super-rich hide billions of dollars in complex financial networks. Thus began the ground-breaking investigation that saw an international team of 400 journalists work in secret for a year to uncover cases involving heads of state, politicians, businessmen, big banks, the mafia, diamond miners, art dealers and celebrities. A real-life thriller, The Panama Papers is the gripping account of how the story of the century was exposed to the world.

This is something of an iffy book - - there may be an underlying agenda to it, no matter what the // john doe \\ leaker claims.
It is slanted at certain parties, and while you might learn something only sketchily covered in the news [as to why the Brit, Heywood, was murdered by the wife of a top Chinese politician and favored on], it isn't all that substantial. The stuff on Iceland is pretty much old news, and compared to Nicholas Shaxson's outstanding book, Treasure Islands, it isn't even remotely as informative, or valuable, or important.
You might find it somewhat interesting, but read it with skepticism, please.
