Riskless, Larcenous, and Legal: Dark Pools and HFTs for the Literary Thrillseeker

By

Art major Michael Lewis, as trustworthy as Diogenes (but with a better sense of humor), hits another home run (don’t forget Moneyball) with “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt”

It is of theĀ “financial thriller” genre, and no less riveting than Harry Markopolos’s “No one would listen” (about Bernie Madoff and, also, the [insert your own appropriate adjective here] SEC).

Note: HFT = High Frequency Trader

Note 2: See reference to “... riskless, larcenous, and legal” in Flash Boys, chapter 4, “Tracking the Predator,” on pg. 124 of the first hardcover edition, 2014.
