Den of Thieves Paperback – September 1, 1992
Enhance your purchase
Pulitzer Prize–winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the eighties’ 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.

Read it if you liked Bad Blood.
The thing I am humbled the most about is how difficult is for these stories to come afloat in the public. I cannot appreciate enough the work of people, who not only find the loose ends, but also reveal them at the right time, thus, keeping the possibility to get the whole structure solved. I love the game where you have to make all the steps in a correct order, as in other way the criminals will stay free.
What saddened me about reading this is despite the time between the events of the late 1980s and late 2000s, little changed in terms of outcomes (as the 2008 financial collapse taught the world). Overall, though, this is an excellent book to understand what caused the excess of the 1980s and to better understand how the world remains vulnerable to individuals and their involvement in the markets.

It was clear to me that whatever their reward, it was always going to be replaced by yet more opportunity and money.
Blind greed comes to mind, as one wonders why such a network of corrupt people believed they could succeed indefinitely.
Well what is new is it is now possible to accurately determine the parameters of the next financial disaster in c. 2022/24 and where to place your money to profit. As Maynard Kyenes said, in every financial upset, money does not disappear, it is merely redistributed. A. Bovill
