Summary

Summary

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 protégé 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 São 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Last Trade is an instant classic of the genre, a thriller you open on the runway and don’t put down until you’ve crossed quite a few time zones.” Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of We Are All Weird
“[An] impressive first thriller…Sobieski [is] the financial world equivalent of Lisbeth Salander…Offers a compulsively readable look into the arcane world of high finance.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Conway, himself a hedge-fund manager, writes under a pseudonym for protection, and his experience lends an authenticity to the story…[and] generate[s] considerable suspense to go with the financial detail.” Booklist
“Fascinating…Credit debut author Conway…for a premise that layers the threat of international terrorism onto the world’s considerable anxiety over a global economic collapse.” Kirkus Reviews
The Last Trade is an intricately woven thriller of our time, laced with the menacing effects of uncontrolled globalization, tumultuous financial markets, and destabilized technology, simultaneously gone awry with harrowing consequences.” Pip Coburn, author of The Change Function
