Former FBI director James Comey shares his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions.

His journey provides an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader. Comey served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, appointed to the post by President Barack Obama. He previously served as US attorney for the Southern District of New York, and US deputy attorney general in the administration of President George W Bush.

From prosecuting the Mafia and Martha Stewart to helping change the Bush administration's policies on torture and electronic surveillance, overseeing the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, Comey has been involved in some of the most consequential cases and policies of recent American history.

Trump has shot back, but Comey has landed a stinger. * The Evening Standard * Comey has quite a story to tell - and that's even before we get to the Clinton and Trump chapters that have made this book an instant bestseller...The Trump win and what followed provides the material for the book's most riveting chapters. Comey has a keen eye and his observations of Trump and his enablers are sharp...In today's world, truth has become a precious commodity and those ready to risk their careers to defend it are few and far between. -- Jonathan Freedland * The Guardian * [Comey] deftly, sometimes comically, captures the president as the inattentive, emotionally stunted, self-focused, absent-from-any-civic-sense, absurd fellow almost anyone in contact with him knows him to be... it is a story of probity, honour and virtue... Comey is an Avenger. -- Michael Wolff * The Sunday Times * A well-written memoir, which combines a powerful argument for principled leadership with some acid comment on Trump's mendacious ego driven alternative * The Economist *
