James Comey – Live on Stage in London

In Conversation With Paul van Zyl

Join Logo

Fired by Trump in 2017, the former FBI director and chief federal prosecutor joins us in London to share his insights into power and justice in a dangerous and divided America.

From prosecuting mobsters as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of New York in the 1980s to grappling with the legalities of anti-terrorism work as the Deputy Attorney General in the early 2000s to, of course, his tumultuous stint as FBI director beginning in 2013, James Comey has dedicated his life to the pursuit of truth and justice.

Now he has channelled that experience into a thrilling new novel, Central Park West – the story of a prosecutor’s fight against high-ranking politicians and mafiosi filled with conspiracy, corruption, and danger.

Exploring his turn to fiction alongside his extraordinary career in law enforcement and perspective on current affairs in a nation where questions of justice and power have never been more important, this live event is an unmissable chance to meet one of the most influential, respected, and distinguished figures in US public life today.
