Blue Trust has all the ingredients of a gripping thriller -- except it's all true. In the late 1980s Bruce and Lynne Verchere had it all. He was a successful tax lawyer whose clients included Brian Mulroney, and bestselling novelist Arthur Hailey. She was a computer software entrepreneur whose innovative systems revolutionized office management throughout North America.
When Lynne's company was sold Bruce could finally afford the extravagances he had long coveted: a plane, a yacht, a summer home in Maine, and a condo in Telluride. Through intricate manipulation, he was able to secrete his family's wealth beyond the reach of the taxman and even his wife.
Then Bruce Verchere fell in love. The desperate affair and dangerous ultimatum that followed provide this true story with a chilling climax. Blue Trust is a complex tale of high drama brilliantly told by one of Canada's most admired investigative journalists.

Fascinating book about a guy (Bruce Verchere) who, finally, just goes too far. The names of his clients are recognizable and the depths of his depravity are scarcely believable, yet it's all true.
A gripping story; very hard to put down.
