This account describes how a 28-year-old from Watford, Nick Leeson, plunged Barings Bank into ruin. In 1994, Leeson seemed to be making the company millions of pounds a week, but he explains how the cover-up of a colleague's small error led to the crash of Britain's oldest merchant bank.

About the Author:

Nick Leeson was born in Watford in 1967 and after a stint at Morgan Stanley joined Baring Brothers in 1989. His immediate success led to his transfer to Singapore. The rest is history. In August 1998 it was revealed that he has contracted cancer.

Review:

Susan Harrison, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW Simultaneously entertaining and appalling - FINANCIAL TIMES * 'When Nick Leeson was arrested in 1995 for bringing Barings Bank to its proverbial knees, it initially seemed as if he had single handedly crushed this most well-established and well-respected financial institution, and indeed it was he alone who found hi * Hair-raising...as revealing a document about contemporary Britain as all 2,000 pages of the Scott Report - OBSERVER * The story of Leeson and his bride has it all: filthy lucre, brazen abuse of power, and boy-meets-girl romance - SUNDAY TIMES *
