Review

`A truly gripping narrative . . . The fact that Tett is able to reproduce such raw private communications is a tribute to her journalistic abilities'
-- Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times

`Her blow-by-blow story is an impressive piece of detective work. She pulls back the curtain on a closed, unaccountable world of finance' -- Will Hutton, Guardian

'A truly gripping narrative . . . The fact that Tett is able to reproduce such raw private communications is a tribute to her journalistic abilities' Dominic Lawson, SUNDAY TIMES -- Dominic Lawson, SUNDAY TIMES

'A very readable, well-informed account of the way investment bankers invented, promoted and profited from the . . . financial products that were at the heart of the financial collapse' Vince Cable, Daily Telegraph -- Vince Cable, Daily Telegraph

'Her blow-by-blow story is an impressive piece of detective work. She pulls back the curtain on a closed, unaccountable world of finance' Will Hutton, GUARDIAN -- Will Hutton, GUARDIAN

`A fascinating and detailed look at the crisis, seen through the prism of the venerable investment bank JP Morgan'
-- Observer

`An absorbing 15-year gallop across the Wild West of the world's financial markets . . . Tett sketches a system in the grip of a great error, emanating outwards from a cadre of elite traders who were able to repel any attempt to monitor, question or restrain them'
-- Stephen Foley, Independent
