The Castro Gene is seamless, suspenseful and shocking. After killing a man in the ring, Luke Braden quits boxing. While toiling as a security guard and yearning to reinvent himself, Luke is swept up into the high-flying domain of Paul Tremont. Tremont, the hottest hedge fund hand around, has a penchant for the dramatic and a disquieting need to control. Being Tremont's protege has its perks-Luke trades in his ratty basement apartment for a penthouse view, his gym clothes for designer suits. But there are strings attached, and Tremont is pulling those strings. Why does Tremont need a washed-up boxer? The answer lies not in what Luke is, but who he is. Luke Braden is the only man who can execute Tremont's diabolical scheme. Fidel Castro risks one last trip to the U.S., and one man will be forced to stand in his way. Luke Braden is in for the fight of his life - or the fight for his life. Intricately plotted with unexpected twists and breathtaking turns, The Castro Gene is a knockout.

About the Author:

Todd Buchholz is a former director of economic policy at the White House and a managing partner of the legendary $15 billion Tiger hedge fund. He is a frequent commentator on news programs and has advised many Fortune 100 companies. He is the bestselling author of several non-fiction books. The Castro Gene is his first fiction work.

From Publishers Weekly:

In Buchholz's awkward fiction debut, young boxer Luke Braden, the son of a Columbia literature professor, quits the ring after killing an opponent, but manages to begin a new career as a rising investment analyst for Paul Tremont, a megalomaniacal and seemingly omnipotent financial wizard. Braden finds his ethics sorely tested as he struggles to stay on Tremont's capricious good side, unaware that he's a pawn in a decades-long shadowy duel that originated in the Kennedy administration efforts to topple Castro in the 1960s. The recent decline in Castro's health makes the present-day plot to kill him on a secret trip to the U.S. less than credible. Buchholz, the author of From Here to Economy and other nonfiction books, offers a surprising explanation for President Kennedy's assassination at the climax, but clumsy prose ("The former Havana Hilton droops over the Havana skyline like an addled dowager who's misplaced her bra") may prove too much of an obstacle for most readers.
