Madoff Family Bio Truth and Consequences: PEOPLE's Review
Truth and Consequences: Life Inside the Madoff Family

This biography about Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff's clan is chock-full of drama.

Among the reveals: Bernie and his wife Ruth's suicide attempt after his 2008 arrest; the rift between the duo and their sons, Andrew and Mark; and Ruth's attempts to reconcile with Andrew in the wake of Mark's suicide last December.

Since Andrew and Ruth cooperated with author Laurie Sandell, it's not surprising that the book portrays them sympathetically, as unsuspecting victims of Bernie's lies.

Buy that or not, anyone curious about this fractured, once tight-knit family will find plenty of food for thought here.
