COnviction at Any Cost.png

the true story of a fictional crime

A New Book by Maurice Possley.


It was the perfect storm.

A group of executives with the support of a Fortune 500 rival company plotting corporate espionage to destroy a leading insurance brokerage firm. A new U.S. Attorney out to cement his professional status. An FBI team needing a collar. A prosecutor trying to fix his tarnished reputation.


Michael Segal didn’t see it coming—until the tsunami hit and he was drowned in a flood of greed, avarice, deception, self-interest, and an unbridled climb to power. 

Telling the Story

Conviction at any Cost is the inside account of Michael Segal's harrowing odyssey through the American justice system. Chronicled by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Maurice Possley, this all-too-true story of corporate sabotage and courthouse intrigue peels back the curtain on our legal system, and asks serious questions about due process, the state of jurisprudence, and the very nature of crime and punishment.

Tense and captivating, Conviction at any Cost is an eye-opening, timely tale of law, disorder, and the need for governmental accountability.
