Diana B. Henriques is a senior financial writer at The New York Times and the author of The Wizard of Lies, a book about the Bernie Madoff scandal. She has largely specialized in investigative reporting on white-collar crime, market regulation, and corporate governance.

Her other books include: Fidelity's World: The Secret Life and Public Power of the Mutual Fund Giant (1995) and The White Sharks of Wall Street: Thomas Mellon Evans and The Original Corporate Raiders.

Henriques was a Pulitzer finalist in 2005 for her 2004 series that exposed the exploitation of American military personnel by financial service companies. Her work prompted legislative reform and cash reimbursements for tens of thousands of defrauded service members, drawing recognition and thanks from military lawyers and families across the country. This series won her a George Polk Award, Harvard's Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting, and the Worth Bingham Prize.

She was a member of a reporting team that was named a Pulitzer finalist in 2003 for its coverage of the aftermath of the Enron scandals, as well as a member of a team that won a 1999 Gerald Loeb Award for covering the near-collapse of Long Term Capital Management, a hedge fund whose troubles rocked the financial markets in September 1998.
