Abstract:

Samuel Spendlove, a bright young Oxford academic, has given it all up to work undercover for William Barton, owner of a massive media empire. He soon finds he gets a thrill out of working for Khan, the legendary market trader. Barton wants information about Khan. He wants revenge over a man who has bested him once. Spendlove enjoys both sides of this game, until it all unravels and he finds himself simultaneously accused of almost bringing down the global economy and the murder of Kaz Day, a glamorous colleague on the trading floor. He goes into hiding in the surreal and dangerous world of underground Paris, chased by the police, by Khan, the bank and William Barton - and helped by Kaz's lover. But who framed him and why?
