Summary
The FIFA case began with an IRS agent's review of an American soccer official's tax returns. It led to a huge worldwide corruption scandal that crossed continents and reached the highest levels of the soccer's world governing body in Switzerland. Bensinger shows that this corruption existed for decades before American law enforcement officials began to dig. Nearly every aspect of the planet's favorite sport was corrupted by bribes, kickbacks, fraud, and money laundering. Not even the World Cup was safe from corruption. And it is far from over.--Adapted from jacket
