In conversation with George Anastasia

The director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017, James Comey captured international attention for his investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails, Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election, and Donald Trump, the last of which ultimately led to his dismissal. He is a former prosecutor, defense lawyer, general counsel, law teacher, and the author of two bestselling books, Saving Justice: Truth, Transparency, and Trust and A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, which was adapted into a popular Showtime series. Central Park West, Comey’s first work of fiction, draws upon the author’s many decades in federal law enforcement as it follows a federal prosecutor’s efforts to solve a disgraced former New York governor’s murder amidst shocking revelations of high-powered politicians’ ties to the mob.

“One of the most respected crime reporters in the country” (60 Minutes), George Anastasia was a long-time writer for The Inquirer, where he earned two Pulitzer Prize nominations (and a hit contract from then-Philly crime boss John Stanfa) for his searing mafia exposés. He is the author of six crime books, including The Last GangsterBlood and Honor, The Summer Wind, and Gotti's Rules. Anastasia’s work has appeared in Playboy and The Village Voice, and he has been an organized crime consultant on projects for ABC and the History Channel, among others.
