David Enrich - The Spider Network: The Wild Story of a Math Genius, a Gang of Backstabbing Bankers, and One of the Greatest Scams in Financial History
Expanding his award-winning Wall Street Journal feature, “The Unraveling of Tom Hayes,” Enrich follows the brilliant but troubled math genius through what became a spectacular financial scandal. Enrich, the Financial Enterprise Editor of The Wall Street Journal, had unique access to Hayes before and after he was convicted of trying to fraudulently rig the London interbank offered rate, or Libor. He tracks not only what Hayes and his cohorts did, but how they did it, and why. In the process Enrich illuminates the global financial system and tells a real-life thriller with a cast of brilliant and unforgettable characters.
