But it was all an elaborate charade.
After suffering devastating losses and fabricating fake returns, Israel knew it was only a matter of time before his real performance would be discovered. So when a former black-ops agent told him about a "secret market" run by the Fed, Israel bet his last $150 million on a chance to make billions. Thus began his bizarre journey into "the Upperworld" - a society populated by clandestine bankers, shady European nobility, and spooks issuing cryptic warnings about a mysterious cabal known as the Octopus.

An Excellent Audible Choice
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. The author did a fantastic job of collecting all the minute details of this story. There are so many little details that it must have been a big challenge collecting and putting it all together. In addition, the book is organized and written very well.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Octopus?
The resumption of the beginning, which occurs very near the end. I actually said, "WHAT?!"
What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He did a great job; I liked Jeff Woodman's narration as much as my favorite narrator, which is George Guidall.
Any additional comments?
If you like the show, "American Greed," or enjoyed the 3-part Madoff production, or liked the book on Charles Ponzi, I think you'll enjoy this book a lot.
