Could he really steal 40 billion dollars?
A disgraced hedge fund manager awaits trial for bilking investors out of forty billion dollars. The legendary dark pool wizard offered phenomenal profits, but the SEC discovered he never made a single legitimate investment. His hedge fund scammed thousands of people, including a Russian mobster.
For Maggie Fender, a law degree remains a daydream as she struggles to support her ex-felon teen brother and their incoherent father. Suffering from Alzheimer's, Dad's rarely lucid, but that fact doesn't stop the police from arresting him for murder.
Their father barely functions, but her hacker brother swears Dad is sending them vital messages about the missing billions. When a private investigator and the Russian mobster focus their efforts on Maggie's father, her remaining hope turns to rampant fear.
She's the only adult in her family, and her weary camel won't carry a single extra straw. Her brother's hacking conviction landed him in prison and trashed the family's reputation, but he swears he was framed. No fans of the Fender family, the local police assume Dad ran away when he's kidnapped.
With her father's life in danger, who can Maggie trust when everyone has betrayed her?
Pure dead brilliant
Thrilled that I bought this novel, what an amazing read!
Her main protagonists feel so natural that they could be the folks next door
There are plenty of twists and turns in a story woven together so beautifully that everything makes sense.
There are also some serious and thought provoking aspects of the story.
Love when one chapter ends and you just have to see what happens next? Dark Pool is a fun read.

The way Helen kept my attention with the many twists and turns to keep you guessing was nothing short of amazing.

A deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story.
Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys," spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?
Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.
While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he's still acting, is a touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.
Coreyography is his surprising account of survival and redemption.
