INTRODUCTION BY MISHA GLENNY, author of McMafia

A gripping narrative of power, corruption and greed, The Mechanism is the true story of how a simple investigation into money laundering uncovered the biggest corruption scandal in human history.

When a small team of investigators discovered that a black market currency dealer was operating out of a Brazilian petrol station, they could never have imagined that their work would destroy the government and lead to the impeachment of two presidents. As the trail leads further and further into the centre of power, the search for the truth and pursuit of justice become ever more crucial.

Taut and riveting, with more plot twists than the most compelling political thriller, The Mechanism is an essential work of non-fiction that exposes the rottenness caused when politicians and big businesses believe they are above the law.

Vladimir Netto has been a journalist for twenty-two years. He is a reporter for Globo TV and the vice-president of the Brazilian Investigative Journalism Association. He has received several awards, most of which connected to scoops in big corruption cases. The Mechanism is his first book, and was the bestselling non-fiction book in Brazil in 2016.

Robin Patterson has translated or co-translated a variety of works by Portuguese, Brazilian and Angolan authors, including Luandino Vieira’s Our Musseque, José Luís Peixoto’s In Galveias, Lúcio Cardoso’s Chronicle of the Murdered House (which won the 2017 Best Translated Book Award), and The Collected Stories of Machado de Assis.
