True Stories of Grifters, Killers, Rebels and Crooks

Keefe, Patrick Radden

<p><b>&lsquo;Eminently bingeable, religiously fact-checked and seductively globetrotting . . . A preternaturally attentive reporter at work&rsquo; - <i>The</i> <i>Observer</i><br><br>&lsquo;A new book by Keefe means drop everything and close the blinds; you&rsquo;ll be turning pages for hours . . . Highly entertaining&rsquo; - <i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br><br><b>From the prize-winning, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Say Nothing</i> and <i>Empire of Pain</i>, twelve enthralling stories of skulduggery and intrigue by one of the most decorated journalists of our time.</b><br><br>Patrick Radden Keefe&rsquo;s work has been recognised by prizes ranging from the National Magazine Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award in the US to the Orwell Prize and the Baillie Gifford in the UK, for his meticulously reported, hypnotically engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. <i>Rogues</i> brings together a dozen of his most celebrated articles from the <i>New Yorker</i>. As Keefe observes in his preface: &lsquo;They reflect on some of my abiding preoccupations: crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial.&rsquo;<br><br>Keefe explores the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines; examines whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a fabulist; spends time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain; chronicles the quest to bring down a cheerful international black-market arms merchant; and profiles a passionate death-penalty attorney who represents the &lsquo;worst of the worst&rsquo;, among other bravura works of literary journalism.<br><br>The appearance of his byline in the <i>New Yorker</i> is always an event; collected here for the first time readers can see how his work forms an always enthralling yet also deeply human portrait of criminals and rascals, as well as those who stand up to them.</p>
