Meet the Author

Evan Slavitt grew up on Cape Cod. He attended Phillips Exeter Academy and then went on to get a M.A. and B.A. from Yale in Economics. He attended Harvard Law School from 1979 to 1981, where he served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review. During law school, Mr. Slavitt taught courses in economics and two semester seminars in industrial organization.


Upon graduation, he then found employment with the United States Department of Justice as a Trial Attorney for its Antitrust Division between 1981 and 1983 working in the Special Regulated Industries Section. Although a junior attorney, Mr. Slavitt prepared witnesses to testify and examined them at trial; drafted motions and interrogatories; took depositions; and wrote legislative and regulatory comments in the fields of banking, securities law, and communications.


From 1983 to 1986, Evan Slavitt served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, litigating over 200 cases in a wide range of areas, from the environment to civil fraud, tort, health regulation, insurance, and eminent domain. In 1986, he was promoted to Deputy Chief of the Civil Division of the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. In this capacity, Mr. Slavitt managed 12 attorneys, supervising litigation with an emphasis on environmental fraud and the False Claims Act, which provides penalties for fraud perpetrated by government contractors.


In 1987, Evan Slavitt left the public sector to join the practice of Fine & Ambrogne in Boston as an Associate. He argued and briefed cases before both the state and federal appellate courts; he also handled every aspect of cases involving civil litigation and white-collar crime. With the expertise gained at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Mr. Slavitt skillfully gave counsel on real estate development and environmental concerns. In 1990, he accepted a position as a Partner at Hinckley, Allen & Snyder, LLP, where he continued specializing in environmental law and white-collar criminal defense. He represented clients in grand jury proceedings and conducted internal investigations. He also served as a Partner with Gadsby Hannah, LLP, from 1997 to 2002, and at Bodoff and Slavitt, LLP, from 2003 to 2006.


In 2006, Evan Slavitt became Director at The Colchester Group, LLC, a consulting firm which specializes in counseling businesses on crisis management and resolving internal disputes. The company also provides consultations on complex financial transactions, including Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations.


Evan Slavitt currently serves as Vice President for Business and Legal Affairs at AVX Corporation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, a manufacturing firm which is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

In this position, Mr. Slavitt deals with matters of international, environmental, and governmental investigations, as well as mergers and acquisitions. He is one of five senior executive team members, and also serves on the cash management committee.

    This is a very entertaining and amusing mystery/thriller. The main character is not the usual superhero and the other characters are well-drawn. The author not only tells an exciting story, but gives insider details on the life of a federal prosecutor. A great read that is hard to put down. Definitely recommend!

    What a pleasure to have a protagonist who is brilliant, witty and deeply moral, yet who is also the Everyman action hero we .would like to be. If Clark Kent did not put on the silly suit, but went about righting wrongs he would be Danny Rencko. The plot is elegantly revealed, the villians appropriately evil and the good guys complicated, well rounded characters. While Rencko may want to return to the serene world of financial crime, I hope we will see more of him.

    A good story, well-told. The Boston-and-environs locations are evocatively described, which gave me many bittersweet hits of home-town nostalgia. I identified with the main characters, especially Renko's amazing wife. They acted like normal people under stress--very SMART normal people to be sure, but never swaggering or arrogant. The portrayal of some of the minor characters--I'm thinking of the Army-Navy store guy--is brilliant, spot-on. The legal and technical points are elucidated through dialogue or interior monologue, never in a teachy or preachy way. The plot is tight, with room for character development and moments of release from tension, before snapping back to the main story line. I read it in one sitting because I could not NOT keep reading it!

    I'm a big fan of this genre, and I found characters the like of which I'd never before met, who were much more finely drawn that I would have expected. The twists and turns were inventive, the plot ingenious, and I was sorry when the roller coaster ride ended.
