Publisher Description

A #1 bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells 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 eighties’ 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.

One of the best

Given the large range of Wall Street scandal books available to us now this may seem a little old fashioned without the sophisticated high speed trading or default credit swaps etc but this was one of the first and best. The characters are well defined and even, in some instances, seem to deserve our sympathy. The numbers involved are huge but small in comparison to the most recent tales of deceit. This story is right up there with Barbarians at the Gate as some of the best wall street tales of the 80s . The writer is as good as Lewis in describing a complex deceit in an understandable compelling text with a strong emphasis on the human failing behind the crimes.
