Meet the Author

Terry Ganey is a best-selling author and free-lance writer. His two non-fiction books have appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List:1. "Under the Influence, the unauthorized story of the Anheuser-Busch Dynasty," (with Peter Hernon) chronicles a five-generation dynasty without parallel in American business. First published by Simon and Schuster, Business Week described the book as a “Dallas-sized saga of sex scandals, family feuds, and a closetful of other skeletons.” Dan Okrent, author of "Last Call, the Rise and Fall of Prohibition," has said "Under the Influence" is "unquestionably the finest book on the American beer industry."2. "Innocent Blood, a True Story of Obsession and Serial Murder," recounts the case of an innocent man sent to prison for a child murder committed by a serial killer. A courageous FBI agent reverses the injustice while putting the serial killer in prison. The Library Journal called the story “a gripping tale of murder, pursuit, and justice.” Innocent Blood was published by St. Martin's Paperbacks. The hardback edition was entitled "St. Joseph's Children," and was published by Lyle Stuart.As state capital bureau chief for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Ganey was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting. He also was a correspondent for the Associated Press and served as projects editor for the Columbia Daily Tribune. As a journalist, he focused on government and politics, the criminal justice system, higher education, insurance and military affairs.His disclosures of Missouri’s Second Injury Fund scandal helped send seven men to federal prison and produced $1.6 million in restitution for the state.In 2003, he covered U.S. Army operations in Iraq and reported on the chaos that existed in Baghdad. More recently, his free-lance work has been published by the Associated Press, the Chicago Tribune and the St. Louis Beacon.Ganey is also the St. Louis editor of the Gateway Journalism Review, and a visiting professor of journalism at Southern Illinois University. He also lectures on a part-time basis at the University of Missouri, School of Journalism, where he teaches writing, reporting and the use of public documents to develop news stories.

    Under the Influence

    Very fascinating book. It keeps you glued to your seat with details of the Anheuser Busch dynasty. Anyone in St. Louis will enjoy visiting the sights they know - Grant's Farm, the brewery in South St. Louis, the mansions along Forest Park, etc.
    Very enjoyable reading.
