- “Flash Crash: A Trading Savant, a Global Manhunt and the Most Mysterious Market Crash in History’’ by Liam Vaughn (Doubleday). As politicians in Washington argue over the power of Wall Street, Vaughn lays out a real-life financial thriller about a mystifying 2010 market crash in which $1 trillion was lost in five minutes. An international manhunt for the culprit zeroed in Navinder Singh Sarao, a trading prodigy who amassed $70 million from his childhood bedroom. Raised in a working-class neighborhood in West London, Sarao played the markets like a computer game. But when lightning-fast electronic traders infiltrated the markets and ate into his profits, Sarao built a system of his own to fight back. It worked—until 2015, when the FBI arrived at his door. But, as the author argues, depending on whom you ask, Sarao was a scourge, a symbol of a financial system run horribly amok, or a folk hero who took on the tyranny of Wall Street and the high-frequency traders.
