|Tracers in the Dark (DoubleDay)|
|Friday, 30 December 2022|
Subtitled "The Global Hunt for the Crime Lords of Cryptocurrency", this is the story of a new breed of investigators who have cracked the Bitcoin blockchain, exposing once-anonymous realms of money, drugs, and violence. Andy Greenberg tells a saga of criminal empires built and destroyed. He introduces an IRS agent with a defiant streak, a Bitcoin-tracing Danish entrepreneur, and a colorful ensemble of hardboiled agents and prosecutors as they delve deep into the crypto-underworld.
This is a cat-and-mouse story and a tale of a technological one-upmanship, looking at how investigators used a mixture of technical wizardry, financial forensics, and old-fashioned persistence to uncover a world of wrongdoing.
