Having been published 8 months before the late 2008 financial crisis Meltdown gained significant attention after the crisis had occurred.
Baker's website sets out that Meltdown is the first in a triology involving Samuel Spendlove in the world of finance. The second book, Version Thirteen, is set in contemporary Moscow and is to be published this year.
Having read a fictional account of the financial disaster of 2008 I turn to a non-fiction exploration of issues causing and arising from that crisis in Boomerang by Michael Lewis. A review of Boomerang will be my post on Monday.
