Other People's Money

By Justin Cartwright

A very interesting story about an old and respectable family-owned bank in England. When the owner falls sick in old age, his son is tempted to play with hedgefunds, and the consequences are not good. This leads to the reluctant  involvement of a very young journalist and her eager leftist editor. The story is very complex and involves many characters, whom we get to know and care about through the beautiful writing of the author. It's hard to tell what we would like the result to be, as someone will inevitably get hurt. [272 pp.]
