James Comey served as the seventh Director of the FBI until May 2017, and his first book, A HIGHER LOYALTY, shared his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career.
Now in his latest work, Comey uses his career in federal law enforcement to explore the US justice system.
Using anecdotes and lessons from his career, James Comey shows how the federal justice system works in this graceful and honest exploration of justice and fairness. From prosecuting mobsters as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1980s to grappling with the legalities of anti-terrorism work as the Deputy Attorney General in the early 2000s to, of course, his tumultuous stint as FBI director beginning in 2013, Comey shows just how essential it is to pursue the primacy of truth for federal law enforcement.
“Comey’s responses to those and other events weren’t flawless or even always courageous, as the author candidly, almost painfully admits, but they make this compelling, soul-searching account a reminder of just how difficult yet consequential it is, in these or any other times, to do the right thing.”–Booklist, starred review
