Publisher's Summary

A number-one best seller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells, in masterfully reported detail, the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice.
Pulitzer Prize-winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the 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, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative - a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions.

Wish there was an unabridged version

Typically I do read or listen to unabridged versions of books. However, I wanted to listen to this one and, since it's a little different from what I normally listen to, I felt like the abridged version would be just as good.

And it WAS good, but I really wish there was an unabridged version! This felt too short to me; like I was probably missing some background facts. But, overall, I would recommend it.

Abridged version does not do justice

This is one of the great books, and the abridged books just doesnot build the story or the characters enough.
