Flash Boys
Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt - Michael Lewis,Dylan Baker

 

 

I really had no idea about HFT (high-frequency trading), let alone "dark pools," but nonetheless, appreciated Michael Lewis's telling of a disaffected group of finance guys looking to devise a new stock market immune from the loopholes that allow insiders to game the system, to the detriment of the average person with a retirement fund.  No need to be a finance wonk to appreciate this book.  Lewis does a great job explaining a murky topic.

The Flash: Hocus Pocus
The Flash: Hocus Pocus - Barry Lyga

Set post season 2, in a Central City in which Flashpoint never happened. This was very nicely done. It felt like an episode of the show, and the author had a good handle on the characters' voices. (Plus H.R. was in it!)
