The New York Times Book Review

“Riveting reading. . . . [Henriques] probably knows more than anyone outside the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission about the mechanics of the fraud. As a consequence, in The Wizard of Lies she is able to add significant detail to the story. . . . In the end the story holds us not because of the engrossing details of the scam, but because of the human dimension.”


“In The Wizard of Lies: Bernard Madoff and the Death of Trust, Henriques chronicles how Madoff stole from thousands of investors around the world while fooling regulators, banks and hedge funds about his investment returns. She analyzes Madoff’s deceptive powers, the market forces propelling him, and dozens of key investors such as Picower.”
