Very Good In Worn Dustjacket. 336 pages. hardcover. Jonathan Kwitny was born in Indianapolis on 23rd March, 1941. He worked for the Wall Street Journal for sixteen years. His reporting exposed the corrupt activities of several people who worked for President Ronald Reagan. As a result of his investigations, Richard V. Allen (National Security Adviser) and J. Lynn Helms (Federal Aviation Administrator) were forced to leave office. Kwitny was the author of several books including THE MULLENDORE MURDER CASE (1976), VICIOUS CIRCLES (1981), ENDLESS ENEMIES: AMERICAS WORLDWIDE WAR AGAINST ITS OWN BEST INTERESTS (1984), THE CRIMES OF PATRIOTS: A TRUE TALE OF DOPE, DIRTY MONEY, AND THE CIA (1987), ACCEPTABLE RISKS (1992), SUPER SWINDLERS (1993) and MAN OF THE CENTURY: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF POPE JOHN PAUL II (1997). Jonathan Kwitny died in New York on 26th November, 1998. Jacket designed by Guy Fleming. 0374215995. keywords: 41351. inventory # 18035. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jonathan Kwitny, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal and author of THE FOUNTAIN PEN CONSPIRACY, has woven together the Old West and modern crime in this real-life tale of a baronial ranching family, the Mullendores. Their legacy includes participation in the great Oklahoma land rush of 1893, an Indian headright (to oil), and a reputation for savvy business dealings. This reputation took a turn for the worse when the Mullendores suffering from financial difficulties, resorted to outside sources for money. In response, an unlikely parade of con artists, Mafiosi and financiers descended like locusts on the sprawling cattle ranch in Osage County. The man responsible for all this was E. C. Mullendore III, the thirty-year-old heir to the Cross Bell Ranch. His personal problems were familiar ones - troubles with a freely spending wife and a domineering father, too much alcohol, business difficulties, and heavy debts - but on a scale larger than most of us could imagine. They culminated in a mysterious shoot-out at the ranch. On September 26, 1970, E. C. was murdered, shortly after buying $16 million in life insurance. His widow’s claim was the largest ever recorded in the history of American life insurance underwriting. It was not one the insurance companies were eager to pay, thus forcing the young widow, E. C.’s creditors (with $12 million worth of claims), and the crotchety Mullendore patriarch (E. C.’s father) to take the double-crossed insurers to court. Meanwhile, the local sheriff and the private eyes went off in pursuit of some fast- disappearing clues to the murder, which is still officially unsolved. As only an investigative reporter can do, Jonathan Kwitny has assembled the intertwining details of the doings and undoings of a modern ranching empire. The result is one of the strangest true stories ever spun out of the West - a tragic clash between frontier values and modern life in America. Bookseller Inventory # 18035
