About the Edition

In late 2001, the Enron Corporation--a darling of the financial world, a company whose executives were friends of presidents and the powerful--imploded virtually overnight, leaving vast wreckage in its wake and sparking a criminal investigation that would last for years. Journalist Eichenwald transforms the Enron scandal into a rip-roaring narrative of epic proportions, suitable for readers of thrillers and business books alike. In the roller-coaster style of a novel, the narrative takes readers behind every closed door--from the Oval Office to the executive suites, from the highest reaches of the Justice Department to the homes and bedrooms of the top officers. It is a tale of global reach--from Houston to Washington, from Bombay to London, from Munich to Sao Paulo--laying out the unbelievable scenes that twisted together to create this shocking true story.
