The inside story of what really happened at Lehman Brothers and why it failed

In The Devil’s Casino: Friendship, Betrayal, and the High Stakes Games Played Inside Lehman Brothers, investigative writer and Vanity Fair contributing editor Vicky Ward takes readers inside Lehman’s highly charged offices. What Ward uncovers is a much bigger story than Lehman losing at the risky game of collateralized debt obligations, swaps, and leverage.

A can’t put it down page turner that opens the world of Wall Street to view unlike any book since Bonfire of the Vanities, except that The Devil’s Casino isn’t fiction.

Details what went on behind-the-scenes the weekend Lehman Brothers failed, as well as inside Lehman during the twenty years preceding itDescribes the feudal culture that proved both Lehman’s strength and its Achilles’ heelWritten by Vicky Ward, one of today’s most connected business and finance writers

On Wall Street, Lehman Brothers was cheekily known as “the cat with nine lives.” But as The Devil’s Casino documents, this cat pushed its luck too far and died?the victim of men and women blinded by arrogance.
