Description

James Conway has written the corporate thriller for our age, and age when the power of new media and the hunder of Wall Street converge to form a deadly entity capable of bringing the global economy to its knees. Drew Havens made a killing for the Rising Fund, which, thanks to his prognostications, was the only hedge operation to anticipate and capitalize on the mortgage crisis of 2008. For Havens, it's always been about the numbers. He sees things others can't, from the collapse of the American real estate market to the multibillion-dollar rise of his ruthless and charismatic boss. Havens is now rich beyond his dreams, but his work at the Rising Fund has cost him his marriage. And now it may cost him his life. It starts with the brutal murder of his young protege and, over the course of six explosive days, six other brokers around the world, each killed after executing a trade linked to the Rising Fund. As the violence escalates from South Africa to Sao Paulo, Hong Kong to Berlin, Havens frantically tries to construct a model that will reveal the catastrophic event that only he can see coming--and confirm that his boss and the Rising Fund are at the center of it. "The Last Trade "is a relentlessly entertaining, adrenaline-fueled thriller about the forces that shape our culture-and a lone man desperate to achieve redemption-- while averting a global economic catastrophe.show more
