The Prosecutors is another exciting and fascinating book by the author of The Partners. Most trial stories depict the prosecutor as a cold, unemotional agent of the government. But Stewart uses six actual casesfrom inception to final resolutionto depict the lives of federal prosecutors. We soon see that very little that a prosecutor does is in the actual courtroom. Most of his work is behind the scenes, in investigation, grand jury proceedings, and out-of-courtroom clashes with criminal defense attorneys. The cases that Stewart describes involve famous people and corporations, such as Attorney General Edwin Meese, Hitachi, McDonnell-Douglas, etc. Some of the prosecutors are fairly well known (e.g., Rudolph Guiliani), others not known at all. In every case, however, Stewart manages to grab our interest. Highly recommended. Sandra K . Lindheimer, Middlesex Law Lib., Cambridge, Mass.
