When Ben, a talented British psychiatrist working in New York, first meets Harry, the former chief executive of a failed Wall Street bank, he diagnoses him as suicidally depressed and admits him to hospital. But when pressure is brought by his superiors to discharge Harry, Ben must keep him under observation, and is slowly drawn into the financier's gilded world, where nothing is what it first seems. After a colleague of Harry's dies amid revelations of fraud, Ben realises he has made a terrible error that threatens both his career and his life.
