Peter Elkind

Peter Elkind, an award-winning investigative reporter, is the co-author of the national bestseller, The Smartest Guys in the Room, about the collapse of Enron. He has also written Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer and recently re-published his first book, The Death Shift, the true-crime story of nurse Genene Jones and the Texas baby murders. In an extraordinary effort to keep her behind bars for the rest of her life--she was scheduled for mandatory release in March 2018--a San Antonio grand jury recently brought four new murder indictments against Jones, charging her in the deaths of children under her care more than three decades ago. During twenty years on staff at Fortune magazine, Elkind wrote detailed accounts of the devastating cyberattack that struck Sony Pictures; the BP oil spill; America's controversial visa-for-sale program; big business' involvement in the battle over the Common Core education standards; Steve Jobs' deceptions about his health crisis; the bidding war among states for Elon Musk's billion-dollar Tesla Motors gigafactory; and Amazon.com's (not so secret) war on taxes. Elkind has written for The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post, and Texas Monthly, and is a former editor of the Dallas Observer. He lives in Texas and now works as a senior reporter at ProPublica, the investigative reporting non-profit.
