Flash Crash by Denison Hatch

Jake Rivett #1
Lookout Press
April 13, 2016

When a rogue quantitative programmer intentionally crashes the gold index, it seems that Wall Street’s worst nightmare has come true. In truth, the crisis has just begun.

Across town, an armored truck filled with $120M of gold bullion is hijacked by an ingeniously crafted electromagnetic crane and seemingly driven into thin air.

Programmer David Belov discovers that his virtual “Flash Crash” was simply a required stepping stone towards the largest physical gold robbery in history, and that’s he’s been framed for the resulting chaos, the lives of his beloved wife and son on the balance…

With brooding, hardboiled detective Jake Rivett and the NYPD’s finest operators from the Major Crimes Division actively seeking to locate and arrest David, and other, darker elements nipping at his heels, David is forced to confront his own past in order to have a future.

Excerpt One:

A storied investment bank, Montgomery was an utter cathedral of finance. If one couldn’t identify Montgomery by name alone, then the enormous modernist vaulted glass ceilings that no Roman architect would have conjured in his wildest dreams, and the white Thassos marble walls, made it abundantly clear that what Montgomery Noyes did was close to godliness. Their core competency was refined but simple. They turned money into more money. Montgomery had experienced a hundred years of institutional existence and planned on one thousand more. The firm was led by extremely driven men whose risk palettes had been pushed to aggressive overdrive at a very young age and never slowed down. In some manner of definition, David was also one of those men. It certainly hadn’t been destined. He’d bucked the trendline of his upbringing, but he knew that mean reversion always had a knack for bringing shooting stars back to Earth.
