Arbitrage

Robert Miller is a New York hedge-fund magnate who appears to have it all: money, power, a loving wife, and a devoted daughter working by his side. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is running on borrowed time, trying to unload his crippled trading company before his frauds are revealed. A deadly error throws Miller's life into a tailspin, raising the suspicions of a detective and threatening the future of his financial empire. This title is recommended for adult audiences only.
