I have a confession to make.
I love adventure/espionage novels.
You know what I'm talking about ... the "Jake Grafton" novels of Stephen Coonts, the longstanding "Dirk Pitt" and awesome new "Isaac Bell" series by Clive Cussler - even the old classics by the late Robert Ludlum ... who is the dean of this genre.
These novels are a terrific way to decompress after a long day here. And the audio versions keep me company on the long commute that I have to and from the office - or when I go to visit companies that I'm studying.
And I can't begin to count how many of these novels (like "The Bourne Identity") include "a secret bank account in Switzerland" as a key plot element.
But Martin Hutchinson, our in-house banking expert, tells me that Switzerland is losing its luster as the world's foremost offshore banking haven.
Another country is emerging as the new haven of choice.
