The Hedge Fund

The patriarch of the St. Petersburg contingent, Sylvan Landau, is a witty, mordant Jewish savant in his mid-sixties. Through investments in up-market real estate Sylvan has accumulated a fortune; when his new son-in-law's father, Ramon Perez y Cruz, presents Sylvan with the chance to mortgage his best properties into a hedge fund Ramon controls and cash in on beach properties in Cuba when the regime relents, Sylvan cannot resist.
