An “extremely well written” firsthand account of taking down corrupt government officials and organized crime in 1970s New Jersey (Publishers Weekly). In 1961, twenty-five-year-old Herbert J. Stern stood in his green army uniform in a New York County courtroom to be sworn in as an attorney. In the years that follow, the idealistic young Stern would sharpen his skills in the criminal courts of New York City and emerge as the lead trial attorney for the Justice Department, charged with breaking the back of organized crime in New Jersey. Stern’s highly charged account of his outright war against government officials and the Mafia takes us deep inside the mechanisms of law and order during a time when cities were burning in race riots; when racketeering and graft were so prevalent in the Garden State that its own senator called it a “stench in the nostrils and an offense to the vision of the world.” Before Stern and his dedicated colleagues on the “strike force” are finished, they will have successfully prosecuted the mayors of Jersey City, Atlantic City, and Newark for being on the take; a congressman for conspiracy, tax violations, and perjury; and blackened the eye of organized crime. “For any fan of the . . . Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire television shows.” —Tribune Observer “An honest examination of how the justice system really works. . . . 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.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

#1 New York Times Bestseller. For more than a year, Christopher Darden argued tirelessly for the prosecution, giving voice to the victims in the 0.J. Simpson murder trial. In Contempt is an unflinching look at what the television cameras could not show: behind-the-scenes meetings, the deteriorating relationships between the defense and prosecution teams, the taunting, baiting, and pushing matches between Darden and Simpson, the intimate relationship between Darden and Marcia Clark, and the candid factors behind Darden's controversial decision for Simpson to try on the infamous glove, and much more. Out of the sensational frenzy of "the trial of the century" comes this haunting memoir of duty, justice, and the powerful undertow of American racism. A stunning masterpiece told with brutal honesty and courage.
