"Wizard of Lies" is a long, interesting book about the Madoff scandal. For anyone who knows of a victim of Madoff, the book will tell the story about the deception, greed, blind trust, and betrayal by Madoff and his victims. This is a well written book that lays out the Ponzi scheme, its players, the victims, and the fruitless efforts of the regulatory agencies to discover the fraud. The future for the "victims" is also described through the efforts of the bankruptcy trustee and his "clawback" litigation. What a mess for anyone connected with Madoff-his family, the SEC, and the "victims"
