Vonnegut follows his debut novel, Top Producer, with another financial thriller about Wall Street's hedge fund industry. In 2007, Jimmy Cusack, an honest money manager, finds himself in trouble after his hedge fund collapses thanks to the pullout of his biggest investor. He takes a job with Leeser Capital, run by the shady Cy Leeser, whose investment strategies have always been far from transparent. Cusack's misgivings grow as losses begin inexplicably mounting at Leeser amid rumours about the company's involvement in an Icelandic bank and a hedge strategy based on life insurance claims. This is an enjoyable murder mystery too, written with a quick wit and a keen knowledge of the financial industry!

Target Audience: Adult readers looking for a fast- paced read and the opportunity to gain insights into the hedge fund industry

Excellent plot and story line. Too many financial terms to understand. Takes away from story line.
