Bestselling author James B. Stewart investigates our era's most high-profile perjurers, revealing the alarming extent of this national epidemic.

America faces a crisis: an explosion of perjury and false statements occurring at the highest levels of business, politics, sports, and culture. In Tangled Webs, Pulitzer Prize-winning author James B. Stewart applies his investigative reporting and storytelling skills to four dramatic cases, all involving people at the top of their fields: Martha Stewart, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Barry Bonds, and notorious financier Bernard Madoff. Stewart draws on extensive interviews with participants-many speaking here for the first time- and previously undisclosed documents to show how such successful role models found themselves accused of criminal deception.
