    Fascinating book For someone who came of age in the 1960's it was very interesting to get a behind the scenes look at some of the lead media stories and top civil rights events and trials of that time Easy to read recommend it

    There is little new information in this book that is not already public But Terry Lenzner tells us what it was from inside the major investigations that he was involved in and how he turned from a Lawyer to an investigatorIn early 60's he starts out as a lawyer investigating Civil Rights abuses particularly by the law enforcement in Mississippi Then he goes on to tell us about work as assistant US Attorney for Morganthau his firing from Nixon White House and ironical involvement in the Watergate investigation He was also part of Phil Berrigan trial First part of the book covers his career as a lawyer and the second as an investigatorIt was as an investigator that he shines and set up his international investigation company IGI and his involvement in Princess Diana car accident Monica Lewinsky investigation dealings with fanatical Kenneth Starr uncovering Unabomber Alaska pipeline cost over runs David Copperfield truck hijacks in Russia work on Ted Kennedy Mitt Romney elections working for tobacco company Brown Williamson and Hollywood celebrities and so onEven though much of the stuff he writes about is already known I found the book riveting

    Great book for those who enjoy recent history Discloses all the angles of the inside information of Nixon's fall from one of the investigators Learned many matters I had no idea about and that when he was removed from office it wasn't for reasons he was originally being investiaged

    I have always found books like The Investigator interesting so I am glad I got the opportunity to read this book I can’t say that I am a huge memoir or biography type of person but when it comes to investigative reporting crimes etc then I enjoy themThe name Terry Lenzner doesn’t really ring a bell with me probably because I was never one to watch the news A lot of the things he talked about in this book I wasn’t even born yet but I have heard about them from history books or TV segments on the History channel I am sure that when most of those individuals who decide to go to law school have big dreams about what they will do but some settle for what they can get I am sure that almost all of them would have loved to have the career that Terry had though there was ups and downs that went with itOne of Terry’s first jobs was working on what is known and the “Mississippi Burning” case about the two white guys and one black guy who went missing and were eventually found dead They have a lot of history channel segments on it as well as movies From there his career gets even interesting even though he has some ups and downs From prosecuting organized crime to Watergate and Terry is a really good story teller and keeps you very captivated in his career in investigating Washington DC He has had a lot to do with a lot of pivitol historic moments throughout his fifty years working as a lawyer I learned a lot about a variety of historical news stories that I have read a little about but didn’t really know much about and some I haven’t ever heard offIf you are a history buff and like reading about a lawyer who do a lot of investigating to get to the truth then you will probably enjoy reading this book

    This was a very good story The beginning part for me was sad because he was investigating the civil rights movement in the 60's He begins with one of the first murders of three workers The sad part of the whole 60's thing was that the so called police in some of these areas were the problem Then these investigators would bring cases to grand juries but they would not find enough evidence to bring charges So many of these people got awat with murder and some were not brought to court until thr early part of the 2000's when some other man was dying This part of the story for me was worse than him investigating Watergate or some of the other ones he talks about in the book After a while the stories were not as interesting as the beginning but this could have just been me There is a lot of detail and information about his life and the investigations he has done for the goverment and the private areas

  9. John John says:

    Book's focus is on practices and attributes that constitute successful legal investigation and of the people who do the work Reinforces what I knew intuitively Author speaks from wide ranging experience first with governmental entities and then after establishing his own private firm For private practice he initially hired newspaper reporters Reporters are agile and effective at getting information from people in an informal setting In contrast lawyers asking uestions in depositions or in court are apt not to get as much p234 The book is a straight forward account of his working life beginning with probing 1964 civil rights violations in Mississippi and Alabama with the US Department of Justice as deputy counsel to US Senate Watergate committee and then to private investigations into Howard Hughes financial manipulations Alaska pipeline hanky panky and the Princess Diana death conspiracy

    I am torn about how to ratereview this book The first part of the book about the civil rights movement and Watergate were spectacular The rest of the book while sometimes interesting was not so greatLenzner is kinda of all over the place at times He digresses a lot Anyway what irritated me the most was how he framed the partisanship that has emerged in our government Apparently all fault lies with the GOP and the Democrat party has never done anything to deserve criticism I won't disagree with his assessments of the things the GOP has done that have been damaging However his lack of criticism about actions taken by the Democrat party is uite noticeable From someone who claims to be unbiased he wrote a pretty one sided book
