Editorial Reviews

author of The Two Death of Daniel Hayes and host of Hidden City on the Travel Channel - Marcus Sakey
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.
from the Foreword - Scott Phillips
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?
