“America faces a crisis: an explosion of perjury and false statements occurring at the highest levels of business, politics, sports, and culture. In Tangled Webs, Pulitzer Prize-winning author James B. Stewart applies his investigative reporting and storytelling skills to four dramatic cases, all involving people at the top of their fields: Martha Stewart, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Barry Bonds, and notorious financier Bernard Madoff.

Stewart draws on extensive interviews with participants – many speaking here for the first time – and previously undisclosed documents to show how such successful role models found themselves accused of criminal deception – with devastating consequences not just for them, but ultimately for everyone who cares about the truth.” – publisher description
