<p><b>I read everything he writes. Every time he writes a book, I read it. Every time he writes an article, I read it . . . hes a national treasure. Rachel Maddow</b><br><br>Patrick Radden Keefes work has garnered prizes ranging from the National Magazine Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award in the US to the Orwell Prize in the UK for his meticulously reported, hypnotically engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. <i>Rogues</i> brings together a dozen of his most celebrated articles from the <i>New Yorker</i>.

As Keefe says in his preface: They reflect on some of my abiding preoccupations: crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial.<br><br>Keefe brilliantly explores the intricacies of forging $150,000 vintage wines, examines whether a whistleblower who dared to expose money laundering at a Swiss bank is a hero or a fabulist, spends time in Vietnam with Anthony Bourdain, chronicles the quest to bring down a cheerful international black-market arms merchant, and profiles a passionate death-penalty attorney who represents the worst of the worst, among other bravura works of literary journalism.<br><br>The appearance of his byline in the <i>New Yorker</i> is always an event, and collected here for the first time readers can see his work forms an always enthralling but deeply human portrait of criminals and rascals, as well as those who stand up against them.</p>
