Black Edge: Inside Information, Dirty Money, and the Quest to Bring down the Most Wanted Man on Wall Street, Sheelah Kolhatkar (Random House)

Former hedge fund analyst and current New Yorker journalist Kolhatkar takes a look at the seven-year SEC investigation of Steven A. Cohen, whose firm S.A.C. Capital Advisors was convicted of insider trading (“black edge” refers to inside information). While Cohen himself was never charged with a crime, his firm was forced to pay a $1.8 billion fine.
