Overview

The Salad Oil King: An American Tale of Greed Gone Mad by M.G. Crisci

An uniquely American tale of Greed-Gone-Mad. Inspired by real events that took place in the 1940-60's. An unpretentious, diminutive Manhattan-born high school drop-out named Alfonso Gravenese morphs into one of the great scam artists in American financial history.


Watch "Fonso" graduate from a modest childhood scam into an executive who initially steals hundreds of millions of dollars from Federal domestic and international aid programs. And ultimately becomes a cunning entrepreneur who creates a $14 billion Wall Street scam that halts NYSE trading and destroys two venerable brokerage firms.


Along the way, you meet an unforgettable collection of friends, enemies and accomplices. Notably benevolent Mobsters, a jealous and compliant wife, a vicious yet oddly romantic right-hand man, and a collection of opportunistic Government and Church officials.


And a surprising ending that will leave you wondering.
