This riveting international bestseller tells the story of how a young social climber from Malaysia pulled off one of the biggest heists in history, siphoning billions of dollars from an investment fund with the aid of Goldman Sachs. With criminal charges looming, the fugitive Jho Low used the money to fund Hollywood films, purchase luxury real estate, and throw champagne-drenched parties.
