Indeed, some of the most notorious "white-collar" crimes of the past generation have been cooked up by prosecutors out to score a kill rather than to do justice. What Michael Milkin did, for example, was not at all illegal when he did it, but the courts and the press railroaded him into prison---out of sheer class envy, as well as a desire to be seen as "tough on crime." Cases are discussed from medicine, business, and various other occupations/professions. This book is exceedingly well written and deserves to be read by every American who still believes in "liberty and justice for all."
Persons on either end of the political persuasion should be concerned about prosecutors using the very real threat of escalating penalties to extract concessions from persons under indictment. It's a real threat to justice. Great book.
