Barton Gellman shared the Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for a keen-edged reckoning of Dick Cheney's domestic agenda in The Washington Post. In Angler, Gellman goes far beyond that series to take on the full scope of Cheney's work and its consequences, including his hidden role in the Bush administrations' most fateful choices in war: shifting focus from al Qaeda to Iraq, unleashing the National Security Agency to spy at home, and promoting "cruel and inhumane" methods of interrogation. Packed with fresh insights and untold stories, Angler describes a man of deep conviction and remorseless will who reshaped his office and his times. Gellman parts the curtains of secrecy to show how the vice president operated and what he wrought.
