“Rats in the Grain” By James B. Lieber (Four Walls Eight Windows; 418 pages; $26) Pittsburgh attorney and author James B. Lieber examines “the dirty tricks and trials,” as the book’s subtitle puts it, of the Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. Lieber charts the history of ADM and focuses on the agribusiness titan’s legal troubles — from the FBI’s massive investigation of global price fixing by company executives to the resulting 1998 trial of ADM’s Michael Andreas, Terry Wilson, and Mark Whitacre in a Chicago federal court. It presents a disturbing picture of corporate fraud, conspiracy, and corruption. “Rock, Paper, Scissors” By Steve Samuel (Simon & Schuster; 314 pages; $25) In his initial outing as novelist, corporate counsel Steve Samuel has turned his hand to a now venerable genre, the Washington thriller. In “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” Samuel tells the story of Secret Service agent Sarah Peterson. Peterson, who as a 3-year-old witnessed the slaying of her CIA agent father, is tapped to head up the security detail of Secretary of State Jack Montgomery. The assignment leads to a dangerous game of high-stakes, high-tech cat-and-mouse, in which she tries to elude a cadre of powerful men bent on her destruction. Illustrated Great Decisions of the Supreme Court By Tony Mauro (CQ Press; 288 pages; $59.95) Don’t let the word Illustrated in the title fool you. This useful reference by Legal Times’ own Tony Mauro is not a picture book (although it does contain an impressive section of black and white photographs). Mauro profiles 88 “pivotal, far-reaching decisions” of the high court. Writes Mauro in his preface: “This book is meant as an introduction to the work of the Supreme Court, but not a cursory one … . The entries in this book go beyond the outcome, detailing how the Court got to the result, as well as what went before and came after.”
