Product description

Review

A rare look inside the world of the federal prosecutor.... Diary of a DA is for any fan of the loosely, fictional Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire television shows. --Tribune Observer

Stern draws a sharp distinction between "doing law and doing justice" packed into [the book] are triumphs that explode from the page like firecrackers, chronicling one of the great law enforcement records of the past half-century. --Fortune

Extremely well written, Stern s account of his personal and professional quest to uphold the law and justice is finely realized and quite impressive. --Publishers Weekly

An honest examination of how the justice system really works in the minor criminal courts of New York City. . . .more than a page-turner of a true crime story. --The Star-Ledger

Stern is a fascinated observer, thoroughly honest in both his job and his writing about it....It details the gritty realities of a prosecutor's office that few people witness. --Philadelphia Inquirer

Extremely well written, Stern's account of his personal and professional quest to uphold the law and justice is finely realized and quite impressive. --Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
