A few weeks ago I complained in this blog post about one of the protagonists of The Privileges, and about how he was never called to account for his Wall Street shenanigans. It soured me on the story. The plot of The Privileges, by Jonathan Dee, includes a complicated insider trading scheme that sounds a lot like the one currently being investigated by the United States federal authorities. So when I read more details about that investigation today, I reflexively thought "Whoa, finally, they are going to get that guy!"
Well except not. Because he's not real. He's just a guy in a book I read. Okay, whatever.
