"The journalist Patrick Radden Keefe has made a career out of deep dives into fascinating characters -- and he's very good at it. In between his regular contributions to The New Yorker, he has published an exposé of the Sackler family and an account of the Troubles in Northern Ireland...With ROGUES: True Stories of Grifters, Killers, Rebels and Crooks we're treated to the same level of journalistic rigor, and the same passion for breaking open mysteries, in an unmistakably bingeable package."
-- New York Times Book Review

"A new book by Keefe means drop everything and close the blinds; you'll be turning pages for hours. "Rogues" is a collection of Keefe's New Yorker articles about criminals and con artists and more. It's highly entertaining, of course, but what shines through most brightly is Keefe's fascination with what makes us human even when we're at our most imperfect."
-- Los Angeles Times

"Rogues is a wonderful book, not only because Keefe's prose is masterful, but because he has a preternatural gift for reading people."
-- NPR

"Rogues is a fast-paced and frequently suspenseful read...Keefe is a virtuoso storyteller, able to create suspense with his descriptions of how those crimes unfolded."
-- The Washington Post

-- Wall Street Journal

"Patrick Radden Keefe is the Sherlock Holmes of long-form nonfiction, a relentless investigator who turns his reporting into irresistible storytelling."
-- Tampa Bay Times

"One of the finest non-fiction writers of his generation."
-- Toronto Star

"A king of contemporary nonfiction."
-- Entertainment Weekly

"Iconic...Keefe delivers masterpieces."
-- Oprah Daily

"[Keefe] excels at shining a beam into the murky inner workings of the world and the human psyche. It's a superpower that produces riveting and revealing tales that, as Keefe writes in the preface, may help us better fathom our own inner workings."
-- Nashville Scene

"[Keefe] makes full use of journalistic tools for fact-finding: keen observation, meticulous research and insightful interviews ... As a result, each essay is a taut, highly honed yet powerful reflection on the creative and corrosive effects of obsession."
-- Bookpage (starred)

"From the prize-winning, 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."
