    “…a scary (and dreadfully funny) treatise on the universality of greed.” —Variety

    Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar lays bare the raw, unfettered power of global finance in this intense, fast-moving, and contemporary political thriller. American banker Nick Bright finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when an Islamist militant group kidnaps him in Pakistan. When the United States won’t negotiate for his release, Nick offers to raise the $10 million ransom on his own by teaching his captor, Bashir, how to play the stock market. In a race against the clock to save his own life, Nick must ask: is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay.
