Steve Berman was the kind of nice Jewish boy that parents always wanted their daughters to meet, tall and good-looking, with the brown eyes and strong chin of a young Robert Taylor. He was twenty-five years old and worked on Wall Street, where he had spent most of the last year at a computer terminal, generating endless permutations of financial outcomes.
