The Enigma Broker by Breakfield and Burkey is a first-class conspiracy novel dealing with the digital manipulation of financial information. I like a good, well thought out, well written, and well researched conspiracy novel and The Enigma Broker satisfied on every level. It is complex and would be a little hard to follow in some instances, but the authors deftly change the point of view by switching from character to character and group to group smoothly enough and often enough to keep the story going quickly and the input of new information manageable. I am not familiar with the world of commodity trading, but could follow the story and learn as I read, which is one sign of good writing. Rich in detail and knowledge of both corporate management and international trading, The Enigma Broker also has a wealth of good old relationship drama, crime, and lessons in loyalty.
It is very evident that Breakfield and Burkey know the ins and outs of the commodities markets, as well as a thing or two about the corporations that operate in this world and other corporations that provide them with security. Avid readers of World War II history and historical fiction will recognize Enigma as an actual machine used to encode messages during this epic conflict. The title of this book is derived directly from that machine and this story revolves around people who were in that conflict, but mostly about their descendants. The Enigma Broker is vast in scope and a very satisfying read.
