Editorial Reviews

Review

“In Dark Towers, David Enrich tells the story of how one of the world’s mightiest banks careened off the rails, threatening everything from our financial system to our democracy through its reckless entanglement with Donald Trump. Darkly fascinating and yet all too real, it’s a tale that will keep you up at night.” (John Carreyrou, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author of Bad Blood)

"Enrich compellingly shows how unchecked ambition twisted a pillar of German finance into a reckless casino where amorality and criminality thrived." (New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice))

“Riveting. … A cracking read. … Devastatingly accurate. …  This is an important book because it reveals how one bank, with questionable business practices to put it mildly, made it possible for Trump to bounce back from multiple bankruptcies, cast himself as a business visionary, and eventually run for president and win.”  (Sunday Times (London))

“A jaw-dropping financial thriller.”  (Philadelphia Inquirer)

"Enrich delivers a master class in financial sleuthing. ... A first-rate read." (The Guardian)

"A revelatory book about the rise and fall of the world’s biggest bank. … Has all the elements of a page-turning mystery novel" (Washington Post)

“Exposes chaos and corruption at the bank that holds Trump's secrets.” (NPR.org)

“In this case, ‘epic’ is right - Dark Towers is a mystery, a thriller, a father-son drama. Did I mention Donald Trump? It’s a distinctly American drama of greed, hubris and power that kept me racing to the finish.” (James B. Stewart, Pulitzer Prize winner and bestselling author of Den of Thieves and Deep State)

"In this masterful account of a bank gone bad, David Enrich turns financial journalism into gripping, page-turning crime reporting. Tracking the sordid history of Deutsche Bank―from financing robber barons, Nazis, and rogue states to laundering Russian money to underwriting Donald Trump to threatening global economic security ― Enrich deftly delivers a compelling narrative that intertwines harrowing institutional corruption and engaging personal tales. It’s a wild ride and a great read." (David Corn, co-author, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump)

“A deep-reaching look at the inner workings of Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump's lender of choice.”  (Kirkus Reviews)
