A riveting inside account of life and leadership at the heart of the FBI and high office in the United States of America.
A Yonkers, New York native, Jim Comey attended the College of William and Mary and the University of Chicago Law School. After law school, Comey returned to New York and joined the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. Comey returned to New York after 9/11 to become the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the end of 2003, he was tapped to be the Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice (DOJ). On September 4, 2013, James B. Comey was sworn in as the seventh Director of the FBI.
A well-written memoir, which combines a powerful argument for
principled leadership with some acid comment on Trump's mendacious
ego driven alternative * The Economist *
[Comey] deftly, sometimes comically, captures the president as the inattentive, emotionally stunted, self-focused, absent-from-any-civic-sense, absurd fellow almost anyone in contact with him knows him to be . . . it is a story of probity, honour and virtue . . . Comey is an Avenger * Sunday Times *
Comey has quite a story to tell - and that's even before we get to the Clinton and Trump chapters that have made this book an instant bestseller -- Jonathan Freedland * Guardian *
Trump offends all that Comey claims to hold dear about power in America and the values and institutions which merit his loyalty. Trump has shot back, but Comey has landed a stinger * Evening Standard *
An urgent clarion call. * The Financial Times *
