“The Jackal of Wall Street”

Before there was the Wolf and a century before Bernie, there was “the Jackal of Wall Street.”

A new book coming out the first week of November tells the tale you probably haven’t heard much about (I haven’t).

From the publisher:

In MY ADVENTURES WITH YOUR MONEY: George Graham Rice and the Golden Age of the Con Artist (St. Martin’s; on-sale November 3), T.D. Thornton paints a captivating portrait of an American obsessed with get-rich-quick schemes, from street corner rip-offs to elaborately scripted gambling hoaxes. Rice made market-manipulation killings of billions by inventing fictitious boom towns in Death Valley and exaggerating worthless mining claims throughout the West. As a shameless racetrack tipster, he cultivated a national following of 100,000 subscribers who paid for the privilege of his worthless tips. Vilified by securities regulators as the “Jackal of Wall Street,” Rice sparked riots in Manhattan’s financial district by perfecting the art of “bucket shop” trading with the sole purpose of robbing the public blind.

T.D. THORNTON is the author of Not by a Long Shot-A Season at a Hard-Luck Horse Track, He is a freelance correspondent for the Boston Globe and has written for the New York Times and Slate.

Sounds great, I’m in.
