Rogue Code: A Novel

Rogue Code: A Novel

Cyber security expert Jeff Aiken knows that no computer system is completely secure. When he’s called to investigate a possible breach at the New York Stock Exchange, he discovers that not only has their system been infiltrated but that someone on the inside knows. Yet for some reason, they have allowed the hackers to steal millions of dollars from accounts without trying to stop the theft.

When Jeff uncovers the crime, the NYSE suddenly turns on him. Accused of grand larceny, Jeff must find and expose the criminals behind the theft not just to prove his innocence but to stop a multibillion-dollar heist that could upend the U.S. economy. Unwilling to heed Jeff’s warnings, the NYSE plans to continue with a major IPO using a new, untested system, one that might be susceptible not only to hackers but to ruthless high-frequency traders willing to take any risk to turn a profit.

Now Jeff Aiken must uncover the truth on his own, following the thread to the back alleys of Rio de Janiero to take on one of the world’s most ruthless cartels.

Rogue Code delivers an intense thriller about a cyber threat that seems all-too-possible—and the Wall Street traders who might allow it to happen.

Includes a foreword by Haim Bodek, author of The Problem of HFT: Collected Writings on High Frequency Trading & Stock Market Structure Reform.
