James Comey, former FBI director and #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Higher Loyalty, uses his long career in federal law enforcement to explore issues of justice and fairness in the US justice system. James Comey might best be known as the FBI director that Donald Trump fired in 2017, but he’s had a long, varied career in the law and justice system. He knows better than most just what a force for good the US justice system can be, and how far afield it has strayed during the Trump presidency. In his much-anticipated follow-up to A Higher Loyalty, Comey uses anecdotes and lessons from his career to show how the federal justice system works. From prosecuting mobsters as an assistant US attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1980s to grappling with the legalities of anti-terrorism work as the deputy attorney general in the early 2000s to, of course, his tumultuous stint as FBI director beginning in 2013, Comey shows just how essential it is to pursue the primacy of truth for federal law enforcement. Saving Justice is gracefully written and honestly told, a clarion call for a return to fairness and equity in the law. A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A combined memoir and defense of the values of an independent Department of Justice.” Kirkus Reviews
“This revealing memoir by the man who was fired as director of the FBI for placing loyalty to country above loyalty to Donald Trump presents an individual of unswerving rectitude, who rues the national descent from strict, fact-based truth into a feckless mirage.” New York Times Book Review

Author Bio: James Comey

James Comey is a former US civil servant and author whose first book, the #1 New York Times bestseller A Higher Loyalty, was made into a Showtime limited series, “The Comey Rule.” He had served as the seventh director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 2013 until May 9, 2017, when he was fired by Donald Trump.

A Yonkers, New York native, he attended the College of William and Mary and the University of Chicago Law School and then returned to New York and joined the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York as an assistant US attorney. There, he took on numerous crimes, most notably organized crime in the case of the United States v. John Gambino, et al. He then became an assistant US Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, where he handled the high-profile case that followed the 1996 terrorist attack on the US military’s Khobar Towers in Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

He returned to New York after 9/11 to become the US attorney for the Southern District of New York. At the end of 2003, he was tapped to be deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice under then Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Comey left the Department of Justice in 2005 to serve as General Counsel and Senior Vice President at defense contractor Lockheed Martin. Five years later, he joined Bridgewater Associates, a Connecticut-based investment fund, as its general counsel. In early 2013,he became a lecturer in law, a senior research scholar, and Hertog Fellow in National Security Law at Columbia Law School.

After he was fired as FBI Director, he held the King Lecture Chair in Public Policy at Howard University for 2017-18 and served as a distinguished lecturer in public policy at the College of William and Mary for 2018-2019. In September 2020, his first book, A Higher Loyalty, was made into a Showtime limited series, “The Comey Rule.”
