This book is dedicated to the man who taught me all about the
my dad. As a young boy, I watched him beat the system everyday of his life; he got around city officials, entertained the local police,conned the FBI, and beat the IRS like a drum (although they did nab him once for running booze from Canada).
He taught me that everything and everyone has a price. With some it was
money, others it was sex, and once in a while, it was for love.Working
college or police agency could ever teach. That's what really mademe a good investigator.Thank you, Pop. If there is a devil, I suspect that you haveconned him, too. I miss you more than I could ever say.
