It tells the story of Mississippi lawyer Dickie Scruggs, who was largely credited with bringing down Big Tobacco in the early 1990s. This book gives a detailed narrative of his ascent to a net worth of nearly a billion dollars and his seemingly unfathomable downfall stemming from his role in offering a $40,000 bribe to a local judge.

His downfall triggered a landslide of legal proceedings that meticulously documented his actions, including questionable legal dealings spanning nearly twenty years.Parts of this remarkable true story have been told by the New York Times, the LA Times, 60 Minutes, 20/20 and PBS Frontline. Now co-authors Alan Lange and Tom Dawson have meticulously documented the full story relying heavily on information from publicly available documents resulting from court actions, newspaper accounts and interviews with the principles involved in the scandal.

Lange is founder of YallPolitics, a web site the Wall Street Journal recognized as the definitive source about the Scruggs judicial bribery scandal. Dawson is a recently retired Assistant United States Attorney that was on the original prosecuting team that investigated and prosecuted Scruggs before his guilty pleas in 2008 and 2009.
