Danny – [11
Pages, 0.8MB ] – Joseph Daniel Casolaro (June 16, 1947 – August 10,
1991) was an American freelance writer who came to public attention in 1991
when he was found dead in a bathtub in Room 517 of the Sheraton Hotel in
Martinsburg, West Virginia, his wrists slashed 10–12 times. A note was found,
and the medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. His death became
controversial because his notes suggested he was in Martinsburg to meet a
source about a story he called “the Octopus.” This centered on a sprawling
collaboration involving an international cabal, and primarily featuring a
number of stories familiar to journalists who worked in and near Washington,
D.C. in the 1980s—the Inslaw case, about a software manufacturer whose owner
accused the Justice Department of stealing its work product; the October
Surprise theory that during the Iran hostage crisis, Iran deliberately held
back American hostages to help Ronald Reagan win the 1980 presidential
election, the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and
Richard – [16
Pages, 1.1MB ] – Richard Thomas Condon (March 18, 1915 in New York
City – April 9, 1996 in Dallas, Texas) was a prolific and popular American
political novelist whose satiric works were generally presented in the form
of thrillers or semi-thrillers. More than being particularly clever genre
works, however, all 26 books were written in a style nearly always instantly
recognizable as Condon’s, while their focus was almost always obsessively
directed at monetary greed and political corruption. Fast-moving and easily
accessible, they generally combined elements of political satire,
bare-knuckled outrage at the greed and corruption of those in power, and were
written with extravagant characterizations and a uniquely sparkling and
frequently humorous style. Condon himself once said: “Every book I’ve ever
written has been about abuse of power. I feel very strongly about that. I’d
like people to know how deeply their politicians wrong them.” Condon
occasionally achieved bestseller status, and many of his books were made into
films, but today he is primarily remembered for two of his works: an early
book, The Manchurian Candidate of 1959, and, many years later, for four
novels about a family of New York gangsters named Prizzi.
