In this taut, twisty -- and timely -- thriller by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar, a successful American investment banker named Nick finds himself in the clutches of a militant Islamic group in Pakistan, who're demanding a $10 million dollar ransom. But when the deal to free him suddenly falls through, Nick is forced to try and raise the money on his own. His subsequent stock-market wheeling and dealing -- and eye-opening lessons on the financial markets -- begin to sink in for his eager-to-learn captors, with truly terrifying results. Akhtar, author of the acclaimed novel American Dervish, won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his play Disgraced. Learn More
