Human Capital by Stephen Amidon

Book Description

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM FILM MOVEMENTIt's the spring of 2001. Drew Hagel has spent the last decade watching things slip away his marriage, his real estate brokerage, and his beloved daughter, Shannon, now a distant and mysterious high school senior. But as summer approaches, Drew forms an unexpected friendship with Quint Manning, the manager of a secretive hedge fund. Drew sees the friendship leading to vast, frictionless wealth, but Drew doesn't know that Manning has problems of his own: his Midas touch is abandoning him, his restless wife has grown disillusioned, and his hard-drinking son is careening out of control. As the fortunes of the Hagels and the Mannings collide, a terrible accident gives Drew the leverage he needs to stay in the game. At once brilliantly observed and masterfully paced, "Human Capital" "deftly slices open the rich, corrupt heart of suburban America and lets its dark secrets bleed out" ("Elle")."
