About this Book

"Trust Me" peeks into the life inside Charles Keating's American Continental Corporation (owner of Lincoln Savings and Loan), where the boss capriciously rewarded and terrorized his staff. They offer mini-profiles of Keating's haunted underlings, tantalized by lucre, their personal lives crumbling with a focus on the charismatic, risk-loving and intimidating "Charlie" Keating.
