Content

The book is based on Brewton's investigations of Texas businessmen, politicians, and their connections to the 1980s Savings and loan fraud.[1][2] The book grew out of an 8-part investigative reporting series that ran in the Houston Post, a series that the Seattle Times columnist John Hinterberger described as "a bombshell series backed up by eight months of investigation."[3] The series won the Galvaston Press Club award for best investigative series.[4] In 1991 PEN awarded the Journalism prize to Brewton, "Awarded for his series on the Savings & Loan scandal," in the Houston Post.[5]
