"Truth and Justice For Fun and Profit"
by Michael Heaton
"The first collection of feature-length reporting
from one of Cleveland's favorite print journalists.
(Foreword by Joe Eszterhas.) Michael Heaton
has reported on as wide a range of stories as any
active Cleveland journalist. On any given day his
byline might appear in any section of the Plain
Dealer, where he is a regular columnist and reporter.
To get the story he has put on boxing gloves
and entered the ring, and gone undercover with
the FBI and mob informants. He has interviewed
chefs and coroners, gypsies and priests.
This collection of 40 newspaper and magazine
stories shows Heaton's Cleveland to be a crazy
quilt of bold schemes, failed dreams,
and colorful characters.
