"James Comey, former FBI Director and 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"--… (more)

I really liked the first book of the the ex FBI director so I could hardly wait to read the second one. After reading i have to say I`m a bit disappointed. The majority of the book is description of interesting/important cases from his career and the last few chapters deal with the FBI investigation against Clinton and Trump during and after the elections which was already discussed in the previous volume. It`s still a good book worth to read, but the first one was better. ( )

I love the Washington Post’s description of James Comey. He found a second career as a public intellectual. Saving Justice is more of a manual for helping the US to rebuild the justice system after Trump took dynamite to justice. It looks at the values Trump has tried to destroy and an accounting of why these values matter. There’s a reason that Comey’s second book is being published just before the inauguration of President Biden. ( )
