"A Vortex of Stock Fraud and Murder...[A] Genre-stretching first novel. "
"TREMENDOUSLY SMART, ASSURED, AND ENTERTAINING . . . An intricate mystery, a colorful rogues' gallery and, improbably, a history lesson on the birth of the stock market. "
"Remarkable . . . Engaging . . . The first stock market crash in the English-speaking world is about to burst, and a whole way of life is about to burst with it. "
——The New York Times Book Review
