The Los Angeles Times once
called investigative lawyer Terry Lenzner “one of the most powerful and dreaded
private investigators in the world.” In his fifty-year career, Lenzner has
worked with politicians, celebrities, governments, and corporations worldwide;
with a steadfast commitment to the truth, he has uncovered facts that have
shaped policy and influenced major legal battles.
In this captivating memoir, Lenzner speaks about his varied
career and high-profile cases for the first time. At the Justice Department in
1964, he investigated the murder of three civil rights workers—an infamous
event that inspired the film Mississippi
Burning. He led the national Legal Services Program for the poor,
prosecuted organized crime in New York, defended peace activist Philip
Berrigan, and represented CIA operative Sid Gottlieb. As a counsel to the
Senate Watergate Committee, Lenzner investigated Nixon’s dirty tricks and followed
the money trail that led to the Watergate burglary and cover-up. He was the
first person to deliver a congressional subpoena to a sitting US president. He
uncovered cost overruns of the Alaska oil pipeline, helped identify the
Unabomber, investigated the circumstances of Princess Diana’s death, and
cleared Hugo Chavez of false corruption charges. Lenzner also worked with
President Clinton’s defense team during the impeachment hearings.
is a riveting personal account: Lenzner astounds with anecdotes of scandal and
intrigue, offers lessons in investigative methods, and provides an eye-opening
