"Merrill debauchery only begins this woman's tale. 'Neither Bill nor I believed Calvi committed suicide,' Tavakoli writes. 'Bill joked that he'd never hang himself. It was too gruesome.'" (Bloomberg News)
"Janet Tavakoli is a born storyteller with an incredible tale to tell. She takes us on a brisk journey from the depravity of 1980s Wall Street to the systemic recklessness that crushed the global economy." (Nomi Prins, author of All the Presidents' Bankers)
"Tavakoli takes us on a scenic tour of the recent lowlights of Wall Street and Washington...demystified and rendered tragically human. It's a compelling tale." (Jake Bernstein, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting)
