Paris, 2008. What should have been a simple yet lucrative scam quickly becomes the fraud of the century, as unlikely small-time crooks Fitous and Bouli partner up with wealthy trader Jerome to steal from a new EU carbon quota market called Overgreen, embezzling an astonishing estimated total of over 1 billion Euros. But when Simon, a government official who specialises in fighting white collar crime, discovers the scam, it’s the beginning of a captivating game of cat and mouse that will criss-cross the world from Paris to Las Vegas to Tel Aviv.
