Book Review: Too Big to Jail: How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations

Brandon Garrett’s  calling card as a researcher is the brute force attack. In both his previous  work on wrongful convictions and his more recent turn to corporate crime, Garrett’s approach has been to mine and synthesize every  available ounce of data from the public record — and to great effect. Convicting the  Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong is rightly seen  as a landmark book on wrongful convictions, and his latest work, Too Big to  Jail: How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations, is sure to be  comparably influential.
