Product Details


“Kickbacks, [Montero] demonstrates, are the ‘cost of doing business.’ But by the end of his book, one is left with the impression that the cost, whatever it might be, is far too high.”

“Investigative journalist Montero explores the impact of corporate bribery in this insightful and clearly written exposé . . . Montero’s far-reaching study will likely shock even readers familiar with the issue.”
Publishers Weekly

“[Montero] is at his most compelling when connecting . . . sordid backroom dealers with some of the world’s most recognizable brand names and the international conflicts that they helped foster. . . . A startling window into the bribery that shapes the world in which we live, including the major corporate players and government parties involved in the corruption.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Read Kickback! It’s unique, revelatory and concise. It actually shows you how bribes work and who pays the price.” 
Lowell Bergman, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and David and Reva Logan Distinguished Chair in Investigative Reporting at UC Berkeley

Kickback has everything: assassination plots, drug dealers, secret agents, prostitutes, and dirty sheiks, princes, governors, and presidents. But this crime thriller is a deeply reported book about the malfeasance of global companies with household names. David Montero skillfully pulls back the curtain on one of the best-kept secrets of corporate life: the corrosive and all-too-common business of bribery.”
David France, Oscar-nominated director of How to Survive a Plague
