Item description for Justice Under Siege by Eva Joly...
France's top investigator of financial corruption tells her personal tale of the scandal that rocked French officials in the 1990s in this gripping autobiography. While examining the state-owned oil giant Elf Aquitaine, Joly uncovered billions of dollars siphoned away for extravagances and bribes. As a result of her challenge to the French government, Joly received regular death threats, had her private telephone tapped, and was robbed several times, eventually enlisting four policemen to guard her life for the six years of the investigation. A bestseller in France, this book tells the story of one woman rising above the challenges and repercussions of scandal and sensation.
