Cutthroat empire he made his own: SIMEX, the Singapore money market that witnessed both Leeson's phenomenal rise to prominence and his devastating fall from grace. It is a portrait of organized chaos, revealing not only the frenetic culture of the trading pit, but also the ways in which Leeson dealt with his losses, avoided detection, and became the object of an international manhunt that sparked the most extraordinary news story in recent years. Pressure, pace, error.
Leeson reveals the inside story of this amazing chain of events. With a narrative as crisp as any thriller, Rogue Trader is the fascinating account of a man shaped by events that proved to be beyond his control.
