Summary:

A number-one bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells, in masterfully reported detail, the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice. Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street -- Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine -- created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America's most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.

Based on secret grand jury transcripts, interviews, and actual trading records, and containing explosive new revelations about Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky written especially for this paperback edition, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative -- a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions.

    Proof positive that white collar crime not only pays, but pays very well! And that the punishment and sentencing for white collar criminals amounts to what would be a paid vacation for the average blue collar worker by comparison. A story of arrogance, injustice and public/societal betrayal portrayed as a one-off case of "bad apples" who only hurt themselves and their companies when in point of fact it is a singular example of the way Wall Street has "worked" since it's very inception.
