“On Wall Street it’s not uncommon for business to be mixed with pleasure, but you don’t expect dinner with an old Harvard classmate to lead to a proposition like the one put to John Haddad.  Brokers, even young ones, get involved in the takeover business.  But to be asked by an apparently sober and serious client to mastermind the takeover of General Motors, the richest corporation in the world – absurd.
Unless, of course your client happens to be the government of Saudi Arabia, whose oil income over 18 weeks is worth the total value of General Motors.  Then the idea turns from being a silly joke into a frightening reality – especially when the government of another oil-rich state has its own reasons for thwarting the plan and is not too fussy about its methods.  But brokers work on commission, and the commission on that sort of deal makes millionaires look like paupers.  So John Haddad accepts, and is catapulted into the centre of what could become the greatest coup in business history.”
