Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * From the prize-winning, New York Times bestselling author of Empire of Pain and Say Nothing-- and one of the most decorated journalists of our time--twelve enthralling stories of skulduggery and intrigue

"I read everything he writes. Every time he writes a book, I read it. Every time he writes an article, I read it ... he's a national treasure." --Rachel Maddow

"Patrick Radden Keefe is a brilliant writer, and each of these pieces reminds you that this world and the people in it are more interesting, complicated and moving than you had allowed yourself to imagine. ROGUES is a marvel, showcasing the work of a reporter at the absolute top of his game." --Daniel Alarcón, author of The King is Always Above the People

Patrick Radden Keefe has garnered prizes ranging from the National Magazine Award to the Orwell Prize to the National Book Critics Circle Award for his meticulously-reported, hypnotically-engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. Rogues brings together a dozen of his most celebrated articles from The New Yorker . As Keefe says in his preface "They reflect on some of my abiding preoccupations: crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial."

Keefe brilliantly explores the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines, examines whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a fabulist, spends time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain, chronicles the quest to bring down a cheerful international black market arms merchant, and profiles a passionate death penalty attorney who represents the "worst of the worst," among other bravura works of literary journalism.

The appearance of his byline in The New Yorker is always an event, and collected here for the first time readers can see his work forms an always enthralling but deeply human portrait of criminals and rascals, as well as those who stand up against them.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Prize-winning and best-selling Keefe follows his highly lauded Empire of Pain (2012) with a collection of New Yorker pieces of astounding variety, each more riveting and extraordinary than the last. A wine connoisseur turned counterfeiter creates vintages said to have provenance in Thomas Jefferson's collection. A stock trader cultivates a relationship with a respected doctor to gain leverage for an insider deal. An Israeli billionaire hopes to monetize a rich iron ore deposit in an African country rife with corruption. Keefe provides scrupulous detail and keen insight into notorious criminal minds in profiles of a powerful international arms dealers, a Dutch gangster who is betrayed by his sister, and the notorious drug trafficker El Chapo. The ego is prominently examined in a portrait of Mark Burnett, creator of hit reality television shows Survivor and The Apprentice, and his role in Donald Trump's ascent. The pièce de résistance is the closing profile on chef turned television star and provocateur Anthony Bourdain, whose humanity and vulnerability are shown with incredible sensitivity. Many of Keefe's subjects exemplify greed, power, and self-delusion, but he also illustrates with remarkable nuance the stigma of mental illness and the compulsion toward ethical principles, reminding us that the arc of the moral universe is long, but it does bend towards justice."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The 12 essays in this superlative collection from New Yorker staff writer Keefe (Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty) reflect, as he says in his preface, his abiding preoccupations: "crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial." "The Jefferson Bottles" chronicles how the sale of bottles of wine that supposedly belonged to Thomas Jefferson, for hundreds of thousands of dollars, resulted in a lifelong crusade against wine fraud by billionaire Bill Koch. "Crime Family" charts the daily life in hiding of Astrid Holleeder, a Dutch woman who brought down her own crime family by testifying against her brother. "A Loaded Gun" explores why neurobiologist Amy Bishop shot and killed three colleagues at the University of Alabama decades after she was suspected of killing her own brother. "Winning" takes a look at the rise of Donald Trump from the point of view of Mark Burnett, creator of The Apprentice, and in "Journeyman," chef Anthony Bourdain, more rebel than rogue, muses on dining with Barack Obama. Every one of these selections is a journalistic gem. Immensely enjoyable writing married with fascinating subjects makes this a must-read. Agent: Tina Bennett, WME. (June)"
