Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup (by John Carreyrou)

A riveting piece of journalism about the Theranos scandal; a Silicon Valley startup that spectacularly deceived investors and made its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes, briefly very rich and very famous. This is told by the Wall Street Journal reporter who broke the story, and he recounts Holmes's duplicity from the inside, and then how he had to deal with Theranos's no-holds-barred intimidation of him and his sources. Everyone from Joe Biden to Jim Mattis is implicated in this fascinating story.
