From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Disgraced comes a thriller about Nick, an American options trader and Citibank executive, held hostage by a fringe radical group in Pakistan. In an ingenious twist on Stockholm Syndrome, the American captive offers to earn his own ransom by investing a multi-million dollar portfolio on behalf of his Islamic captors. Assisted by his guard Bashir, he begins to harness the power of free markets to accumulate a fortune on behalf of the group's leader, Imam Saleem. In the midst of violence, corruption and inequality, Bashir proves to be not just a sharp critic of Western materialism but also an apt pupil of Nick's trading strategies as they form an uneasy alliance.
