Liar’s Poker meets The Fugitive in this financial thriller! Jonah Lightbody is twelve years old the first time he sets foot on the trading floor where his father works. He expects his day to be filled with computer games and some father-son bonding, but when a hotshot trader offers to take Jonah under his wing, Jonah is catapulted into a high-stakes, take-no-prisoners lifestyle. When Jonah’s father is accused of orchestrating a global financial meltdown, Jonah will have to choose who to believe–the father whose blood runs through his veins or the one who taught him how to be a man. Dead Cat Bounce is the mostly true story of the 2008 financial collapse–it’s about traders but it’s also about our collective race to uncover the truth, as told through the eyes of a sixteen-year-old boy.
