Longlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award Sam Israel was a man who seemed to have it all. Born into one of America's richest families, he founded his own hedge fund, promising his investors extraordinary profits. But, after suffering devastating losses and faking tax returns, Israel knew the truth would soon be uncovered. So when a former CIA-operative turned conman told him about a "secret market" run by the Federal Reserve, Israel flew to London and bet his investors' last $150 million on a chance to make it all back. Thus began his crazy year-long adventure in a bizarre world populated by clandestine bankers, old-money aristocrats, fraudsters, gun-toting spooks and a mysterious cabal known only as the Octopus. Based on three years of interviews in prison with Israel, acclaimed Rolling Stone journalist Guy Lawson weaves a labyrinthine tale of unchecked greed and spiralling madness - the most thrilling true story you will ever read.
