Reviews

"Eamon Javers has produced a remarkable book about the secret world of business warfare--a world filled with corporate spies and covert ops and skullduggery. This is an important book that has the added pleasure of reading like a spy novel."--David Grann, author of The Lost City of Z
"Stunning, revelatory."--John Stewart, The Daily Show
"From early wiretaps to the use of satellites, the author expertly explains how spies help clients sabotage corporate competitors or buy and sell stocks based on expected fluctuations in the price of corn."--Publishers Weekly
"If only the mainstream press would follow Eamon Javers' lead and expose the powerful saboteurs and predators of the corporate underworld, this would be a different country. But it's not too late. Read this book and roll up your sleeves."--Bill Moyers
"This is a must-read, excellent book."--Booklist
"Eamon Javers is one of Washington's best reporters. In Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy, he has told a wonderfully readable tale with great characters and high stakes, and the dubious practices by corporations and intelligence agents he exposes are going to ignite an important public debate."--John F. Harris, author of The Survivor
"Turns out there are far more cloaks and quite a few more daggers in this country than most of us realized. That's one of the many lessons of this terrific book. Eamon Javers is as talented a writer as he is a reporter. What a great read."--Tucker Carlson
