The Strand has always been one of London’s busiest streets - linking the City and Westminster, it is a very important route. But for many centuries it looked nothing like the wide, stylish thoroughfare we see today. Then the Victorians came along… They set to work improving it with their customary thoroughness, and what we see today is largely their invention. It doesn’t smell, it’s harder to fall into the river and it no longer harbours dubious bookshops and dodgy lawyers – but nothing is perfect and they swept some treasures and fascinating places away whilst they were doing it. In fact, the entire personality of the street was changed.Come and find out what became of an Elizabethan street that survived the Great Fire of 1666; why Somerset House lost its arches; who you might meet on top of Temple Tube Station; why a gas lamp near the Savoy had its own supply; and much, much more.And, apparently, it’s a great place to have a banana…

Scarsella spices [his tale] with saucy language when needed and street lingo where appropriate. He keeps the suspense at high level until the answers unfold. - The Buffalo News (May 31, 2015) Lawyers Gone Bad is the story of beleaguered attorney and disciplinary counsel, Dean Alessi, and his trusty investigator, Stu Foley, in their fight against lawyers who have gone bad; that is, lawyers who commit ethical and criminal wrongs. They are investigating the case of the local district attorney who may have committed the ultimate ethical crime of murder. Vincent Scarsella draws on his over 18 years of real-life experience as head of the Eighth Judicial District Grievance Committee in Buffalo, New York, to craft a gripping, suspenseful tale about lawyers who have gone bad. More than a crime story, this tale concerns friendship, loss, unrequited love, and ultimately, justice. It seeks to answer the question: Does what goes around, come around? Lawyers Gone Bad follows on the success of Vincent Scarsella’s debut crime novel, The Anonymous Man. "The Anonymous Man gets decent marks for creativity and intricacy...it's a fast read that runs through familiar local settings to a satisfying conclusion. Scarsella has the makings of a good storyteller...he and [Jack] Fox could go places." - The Buffalo News "I am really enjoying reading this book so far." - Krystal H. (March 7, 2016) "Lawyers Gone Bad is so good!" - Gary L. Hosking (January 1, 2015) "Fantastic plot!" - Harry J Gawronski (April 8, 2015) Thank you for your interest.

A number-one best seller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells, in masterfully reported detail, the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice. Pulitzer Prize-winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street - Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine - created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America's most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice. Based on secret grand-jury transcripts, interviews, and actual trading records, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative - a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions. 1.
