AS IF Bernie Mad­off didn’t cause enough havoc be­fore his mis­deeds were rum­bled, now that he is be­hind bars a new scram­ble has en­sued: duelling bi­og­ra­phers. In the wake of oc­ca­sional JC con­trib­u­tor Adam LeBor’s The Be­liev­ers: How Amer­ica Fell for Bernard Mad­off’s $65 Bil­lion In­vest­ment Scam, for Wei­den­feld, comes Mad­off: The Man Who Stole $65 Bil­lion by Erin Arved­lund, billed by pub­lish­ers Pen­guin as the per­son who penned “the first ma­jor crit­i­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Mad­off” in 2001, archly adding: “The US fi­nan­cial reg­u­la­tors did not fol­low up her rev­e­la­tions”. Good to know that LeBor and Arved­lund at least agree on the amount of money in­volved.
