    In 2009, with the dust yet to settle on the financial crisis, a baby-faced, seemingly mild-mannered Wharton grad began setting in motion a fraud of unprecedented gall and magnitude - one that would come to symbolize the next great threat to the global financial system. His name is Jho Low, a man whose behavior was so preposterous he might seem made up. An epic true tale of hubris and greed, Billion Dollar Whale reveals how this young social climber pulled off one of the biggest heists in history.

    “I did what I did, and that’s on me.” From that tantalizing first sentence, Tom Wright sweeps listeners up in a tale of lost innocence. Jim has a touch of the Sight. It’s nothing too spooky and generally useless, at least until the summer his cousin L.A. moves in with him and their grandmother. When Jim and L.A. discover the body of a girl - brutally raped and murdered - in a field, an investigation begins that will put both their lives in danger.

    Kidnapped as an infant, Hakon is raised by the earth-empowered Terra people. Considered less than beasts, the clawed-hand warriors plot revenge against the air-empowered Alem that invaded their land centuries before. Hakon grows up with the knowledge that he is an Alem prince, tempered by the love he feels for the family that raised him. While Hakon tries to find peace between two warring peoples, his sister Kara rises from the hidden role of handmaid to the public role of princess.
