A number-one bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells, in masterfully reported detail, the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice. Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street -- Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine -- created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America's most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice. Based on secret grand jury transcripts, interviews, and actual trading records, and containing explosive new revelations about Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky written especially for this paperback edition, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative -- a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As good a book on Wall Street as I have ever read…It is a fine, spicy tale. But to stop at that is to miss the book’s importance: it at long last gives us a full and true record of systemic criminal behavior in the financial markets.”  New York Times
“A fascinating account of the financial scandals that culminated in 1990…Blends narration and exposition so that we can follow the intricacies of finance and financial law without effort.”  New Yorker
“Battling through shrouds of secrecy, Mr. Stewart has done a masterful job of linking together the chief players in this lurid drama.”  Economist
“Stewart’s tale is like a novel you can’t put down but wish would end because it is so disturbing…It’s a story of the decade—a revealing, disturbing tale of what can happen when greed runs rampant.”  Seattle Times
