Master of Deceit featured in Sunday’s Columbus Dispatch

Master of Deceit was highlighted in The Columbus Dispatch as their Sunday feature today, May 17, 2020.

Dispatch Reporter Nancy Gilson spotlights how the book was eight years in making to show how a con man used a fake charity for veterans to funnel money to politicians and gain access to scores of top Republican politicians, though he was a wanted man. Those donations earned him access to President George W. Bush on multiple occasions, including once in the Oval Office.  No one at the White House or in Secret Service realized the man they welcomed was using a stolen ID or that he was wanted at the time by the FBI.

In the Q & A, Gilson takes a deeper look at the question of whether John Donald Cody was CIA and a glimpse into the dozens of aliases, which kept Cody ahead of law enforcement for more than 15 years.  In questioning the author, Gilson said she found the book “fascinating.

    Yet another issue is that video games usually are serious anyway with the major focus on studying rather than enjoyment. Although, there is an entertainment element to keep your young ones engaged, every game will likely be designed to work towards a specific experience or program, such as mathematics or scientific disciplines. Thanks for your post. Ara Mort Pokorny

      Thank you. If you want to read more about this con artist, you may want to look at my book Master of Deceit. Its a narrative thriller about his life and crimes, and the mysteries he has left in his wake.

      All the best.

      Thank you very much.
      I tend to be a passionate writer, I think its my nature.
      I hope you come back. Many more articles on the blog and I have the first chapter of a true crime book I released in 2020. It’s a narrative nonfiction where veterans were ultimately hurt. I just couldn’t give up not trying to solve the mystery.

      All the best!

    I feel very committed to my piano students. Music saved me in so many ways that I want as many to have music in their lives as well. I have seldom said no to a new music student. I am sure there will be a time that I will have to say no. Dagmar Cam Cheston
