Larry B. Max is an unusual specialist from a little-known branch of the I.R.S. (Internal Revenue Service), the all-powerful tax-collecting agency of the United States, with every technological method at his disposal to link high finance and high crime.

There are bad memories in Larry Max’s past. Dark figures specialised in shady dealings that once bullied and defeated the young, novice IRS agent. He never forgot, though. And now those names are coming up again in relation to some relatively minor trading fraud. But when Larry begins unravelling the threads, from Texas to Azerbaijan, what he discovers is anything but minor: secrets that could make a select few immensely rich – and set the world ablaze.

Not seen an IR$ book for a while but this makes up for the long wait.

The story is great and well-paced -as you would expect.  The art -superb as always.  Combine the two and you have one great book with a good few twists and turns and there isn't much I can tell you without spoiling a good read.  However, the last page------!

The story continues in IR$ 6, The Black Gold War and if you thought a series about an Internal Revenue Service agent would be boring -think again!

Excellent stuff.
