Praise for SCOUNDRELS…

"Much will be made of the timeliness of SCOUNDRELS, and with good reason; these days Enron executives and securities brokers are far scarier than serial killers. But SCOUNDRELS is more than just timely — it's a great read, a collection of fabulous stories by remarkable authors. Bravo." —Marcus Sakey, author of The Two Death of Daniel Hayes, and host of Hidden City on the Travel Channel

What other group of human beings inspires such a level of hatred and disgust in us as the white collar crook? Lesser thieves don’t get the level of hatred and contempt that these high-flying kleptomaniacs generate. Why does a Bernie Madoff or a Kenneth “Kenny Boy” Lay inspire nearly as much opprobrium from the rest of us as a serial killer, a genocidal dictator or a child molester? — Scott Phillips, from the Forward
