Format: Hardcover
A fascinating novel which exposes the fragility of the world economy, the ingenus who propel it forward and those who police it. This is not a genre I read regularly, but I found it hard to put it down.
The Oxbridge elements are absolutely genuine, as is the financial/economic backdrop. My one reservation is the sub-plot, which some may enjoy, but I personally didn't.
The novel is very filmic, and I wouldn't be surprised to The Pegasus Forum on the big screen ...

As I finished David Schofield's debut novel, a thriller set against the background of the orchestrated collapse of the world's financial markets, Railtrack was put into administration.
So completely had "The Pegasus Forum" swept me up in the plot hatched by an Oxford Economist and his carefully chosen acolytes to bring capitalism to its knees, that this news seemed no more than yet another example of the economic and financial disasters strewn across this well-written and entirely believable account of the targeted destruction of our wealth-based society.
Although the publication of this book is undoubtedly timely, it is Schofield's rare ability to transport his story to the reader - rather than merely transporting the reader into his story - which sets this book apart.
Buy it. Read it. Then sell all you shares for gold - and hide it under your bed.

Format: Hardcover
This is a novel in the vain of the numerous financial thrillers authored by the likes of Michael Ridpath, Stephen Frey and John McLaren. Unfortunately, this author fails where the others have succeeded.
The novel, inexorably written in three parts, bobs and weaves over twenty years, spinning a yarn of deceit and bitter intrigue, concocted by an Oxford professor, and his proteges, who conspire to destabilise the world economic system, supported by ill-formed motives. The sections on the City and financial markets, Oxbridge, and technology are inaccurately researched, and one feels that Schofield has pulled the wool over his editors eyes with 'long words'.
The novel starts with promise, by meanders through contrived plot-lines, and the surprise ending is truly surprising for it's total impausibility - clearly manufactured for Hollywood.
An intriguing thriller, spoiled by overly clever plotting and under-developed characters.
