“At one point, lawyer Lenzner was called one of the most powerful and dreaded private investigators in the world. His famous clients have included politicians and celebrities, governments and corporations. He investigated the now infamous murder of three civil rights workers in the American South at the height of the civil rights era. He subpoenaed Richard Nixon when he was assistant chief counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee. He worked with Bill Clinton’s defense team during the presidential impeachment hearings. At the request of Dodi Fayed’s father, Lenzner investigated the circumstances surrounding the car-crash death of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed. And he conducted opposition research on Mitt Romney. Yet what strikes the reader is how insightful Lenzer is, and how humble he seems… A compelling memoir about a fascinating life.” Booklist

“I stayed up until the wee hours reading this fascinating book. Lenzner played an important behind-the-scenes role in most of the great dramas of the second half of the 20th Century, from Selma to Watergate to the CIA hearings to the Clinton impeachment. He’s a great storyteller and shrewd judge of character who tells us—finally—where so many of the important bodies are buried.” Jonathan Alter, author of The Center Holds: Obama and His Enemies

“Terry Lenzner’s is an exemplary life of brilliance, pragmatism and derring-do. His memoir reveals an astonishing involvement in every sector of US life from Big Oil to High Art.
