Timothy Van Bender, Yale graduate and successful hedge fund manager in Palo Alto, has it easy. He has a beautiful wife, Catherine, and a million dollar business that practically runs itself. He takes other people's money and plays the stock market. Timothy has a simple philosophy: Making money is easy as long as you don't think too much, or work too hard. The trend is your friend. That is, until his graduate employee appears one morning in his doorway, pale and covered in sweat, like a man who's recently vacationed in hell. The Yen has shot up, against all predictions, and Timothy has just lost $24 million. Timothy's answer to this setback? Double the bet. He always wins after all, so what's the worry? But the Yen keeps climbing, and one of his business investors starts asking questions. With his company on the brink of collapse, he gets a call from his wife, Catherine, who phones to say goodbye, moments before jumping off a cliff to her death. Timothy can't believe it, and nor, for that matter, can the local police. On the edge of financial ruin and under suspicion for murdering his wife, things are not looking good. He must use all of his natural talents to keep things in motion - he must lie, cheat, seduce and deceive. But Timothy may not be the only liar in town. There's someone out there, acting against him, who makes Timothy's sleight-of-hand look like the fumblings of a rank amateur.
