Journalist Tim Mak explores the downfall of the NRA in "Misfire"

Book cover for "Misfire" by Tim Mak
Dutton
/

Tim Mak is National Public Radio’s Washington Investigative Correspondent, and was one of NPR’s lead reporters on the Mueller investigation and the first Trump impeachment. While reporting for the Daily Beast in 2017, he broke the story of Russian agent Maria Butina and her connection with the NRA.

"Misfire" (Dutton) is the result of a four-year investigation by Mak who scoured thousands of pages of never-before-publicized documents and cultivated dozens of confidential sources inside the NRA’s orbit to paint a vivid picture of the gun group’s rampant corruption and slow decline, marking a sea change in the battle over gun rights and control in America.
