High Crimes

“A swiftly paced history of the events surrounding the Mueller report and its aftermath...”

Kirkus Reviews,
New York City

The Shadow President

“It presents an entirely damning portrait of Pence. You've seen his colors before, but not so vividly and in this detail.”
Frank Bruni,
The New York Times

“It’s a barn-burner of a story, a fight for love and glory, and Eisner’s impeccable research and reporting bring it to life. Here’s looking at you, Claire.”
Washington Post

“… is my choice for a brilliantly researched, jaw-dropping book that ought to be on every politician’s reading list this week.”
—Laurie Garrett, author, journalist, winner of the Pulitzer and Polk prizes
