Extremely thorough and entertaining
Loved the insight into how the rich hide their wealth, and how far reaching it really is!
Great listen for anyone curious about offshore bank accounts and so much more.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
- By: Ransom Riggs
- Narrated by: Jesse Bernstein
- Length: 9 hrs and 42 mins
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
It might be better to actually read this.

Great read, much more in depth than the movie.
Very well written, creative and broad. Interesting plot. Watched the movie and it was not nearly as good in my opinion.
