This Bleeding City
Charlie Wales left Edinburgh University with dreams of the high-life. Six months later he is marooned in London, unemployed and living in a house he shares with the girl he loves (but who no longer loves him). He finally secures a job at Silverbirch – a hedge-fund based in Mayfair, where he begins to work in the brutal and remorseless world of high finance. When the markets crash, Charlie sees the potential for an escape; but is he already too far immersed in the City to get out?
