The Invisible Hand by Ayad Akhtar
American investment banker Nick Bright is held for ransom by a militant group in Pakistan, and nobody is coming to his aid. In exchange for a shot at freedom, Nick strikes a risky deal with his captors where he will teach them how to manipulate the global market, but is the price of freedom something he’s willing to pay? Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s suspenseful and provocative political thriller explores the consequences of fanatical devotion to both the scripture and the dollar.
"A hand-wringing, throat-clenching thriller that rarely lets up."
