A gripping, real-life thriller set in the world of the most important tradeable commodity on earth: oil________________________‘A taut thriller ... fast, funny and mean' - Bloomberg‘Glamorous, exciting and true, it's a tale to send the Ocean's Eleven back to bussing tables for tips.' - Arena________________________THE TRUE STORY OF A WALL STREET NOVICE WHO CHANGED THE WORLD OF OIL FOREVERRigged tells the incredible rags-to-riches story of David Russo, an Italian-American upstart from the streets of Brooklyn who claws his way into the wild, frenetic world of the testosterone-laced warrens of the Merc Exchange: an asylum-like oil trading center located in lower Manhattan where billions of dollars trade hands every week, a place where former garbagemen become millionaires overnight and fistfights break out on the trading floor. But the Merc is just the starting place of an adventure that leads David to private yachts in Monte Carlo, the gold-lined hotel palaces of Dubai, and dangerous deals in the back alleys of Beijing.

This is the true story of one man's adventure to revolutionize the oil trading industry - and along with it, the world.
