Brazilian-born Gil is trying to find the American Dream. In the meantime, he polishes the shoes of the superrich and powerful on Wall Street—high-rolling traders as uninhibited as they are ruthless. Gil sees things as few other people do—from the ground up—and his perspective on the day-to-day insanity of the trading floor is priceless. But this fly on the wall overhears one or two things that maybe he shouldn't. And when a Glossy magazine journalist, desperate for a big break, persuades him to be an undercover source for what may be the biggest insider trading scam in Wall Street history, Gil is catapulted into a danger zone darker than anything he or the journalist could have imagined.
