’Not just a readable, pacey account of an extraordinary individual and his quixotic quest … but also a troubling exposé of the fragility of our entire financial system … I loved it’
Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland

For fans of Bad Blood and The Big Short, the story of how one reclusive trading prodigy manipulated Wall Street and amassed millions from his childhood bedroom – then short-circuited the global market.

A real-life financial thriller, Flash Crash gives panoramic insight into our economic landscape – its weaknesses, its crooks and its exploitable loopholes – and uncovers the remarkable, behind-the-scenes narrative of a mystifying market crash, a globe-spanning investigation into international fraud, and the man – Navinder Singh Sarao – at the centre of it all.

Depending on whom you ask, Sarao was a scourge, a symbol of a financial system run horribly amok, or a folk hero: an outsider who took on the tyranny of Wall Street and the high-frequency traders.

Liam Vaughan is a senior reporter with Bloomberg and Businessweek magazine in London.

His book, Flash Crash (William Collins, Doubleday, 2020), tells the remarkable real-life story of Navinder Singh Sarao, a trading savant who made $70 million from nothing from his childhood bedroom - until the US government accused him of helping cause one of the most dramatic market crashes in history. It will be published in May 2020 and is being developed into a movie by an Oscar-winning production company.

Vaughan's first book, The Fix (Wiley, 2017), co-written with Gavin Finch, tells the inside story of the Libor scandal. It garnered widespread critical praise and featured in serialisations in the Sunday Times and the Guardian.

Vaughan has covered financial markets for more than a decade. In 2013, he led a team of reporters who uncovered a global conspiracy to manipulate the $5 trillion a day foreign exchange market, sparking investigations on three continents that have resulted in $10 billion in fines for banks including JP Morgan, Citigroup, Barclays and UBS. He was awarded a Gerald Loeb award for excellence in business journalism in 2014 and the Harold Wincott prize for the best financial journalism in 2013.
