As the brilliant and calculating Robert Merkin prepares a hostile takeover of a family-owned manufacturing company, he is not concerned about crossing the line to get what he wants in the name of saving America. Inspired by the volatile and cut-throat financial world and the junk bond giants of the 1980s, this epic piece of work (Chicago Tribune) is an enticing look at the money makers, their hubris and those who tried to hold them accountable. Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtars (Disgraced) latest work asks if redemption is truly possible or if there is always a new scheme waiting in the wings.
