Publisher's Description

A financial thriller based on the Panic of 1907 by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Jungle

In 1907 the stock market crashed as a result of the manipulations of a group of powerful, wealthy, and unscrupulous men. The repercussions were felt across the nation, taking a devastating toll on thousands of small investors and hardworking Americans. The Moneychangers, written a century before the term "too big to fail" became part of the national lexicon, dramatizes the secret dealings of the one-percenters who brought the national economy to the brink of collapse.
 
Lawyer Allan Montague is at home among New York City’s wealthiest and most influential citizens. His position provides him with an insider’s perspective on the motivations of the financial elite—and what he sees isn’t always pretty. Now, a small group of very rich men intend to take down a rival, even if it means wiping out the livelihoods and savings of thousands and thousands of unsuspecting citizens in the process. Powerless to stop the plot, all Montague can do is try to save the woman he loves from a tragic collision of jealousy, avarice, and lust.
 
This ebook has been authorized by the estate of Upton Sinclair.

Author Bio

Upton Sinclair (1878–1968) was a Pulitzer Prize–winning author, activist, and politician whose novel The Jungle (1906) led to the passage of the Federal Meat Inspection Act and the Pure Food and Drug Act. Born into an impoverished family in Baltimore, Maryland, Sinclair entered City College of New York five days before his fourteenth birthday. He wrote dime novels and articles for pulp magazines to pay for his tuition, and continued his writing career as a graduate student at Columbia University. To research The Jungle, he spent seven weeks working undercover in Chicago’s meatpacking plants. The book received great critical and commercial success, and Sinclair used the proceeds to start a utopian community in New Jersey. In 1915, he moved to California, where he founded the state’s ACLU chapter and became an influential political figure, running for governor as the Democratic nominee in 1934. Sinclair wrote close to one hundred books during his lifetime, including Oil! (1927), the inspiration for the 2007 movie There Will Be Blood; Boston (1928), a documentary novel revolving around the Sacco and Vanzetti case; The Brass Check, a muckraking exposé of American journalism; and the eleven novels in the Pulitzer Prize–winning Lanny Budd series.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Upton Sinclair
"When people ask me what has happened in my long lifetime I do not refer them to the newspaper files and to the authorities, but to [Upton Sinclair’s] novels." —George Bernard Shaw
