At the center of this novel is Jonathan Alkaitis, a Bernie Madoff-type figure whose massive ponzi scheme is, we know as soon as we meet him, about to collapse and land him in prison. Although his centrality is not at all obvious at first, as the story starts somewhere else entirely, with someone who sure looks like he's going to be the main character but then mostly fades out of the narrative for a very long while.
