The Last Circle book is a true life tour-de-force through the labyrinth of institutionalized crime in the United States during the past 28 years.

Subsequent to World War II, the power brokers in and out of government developed a culture of corruption, a malevolent mob mentality that is incapable of reforming itself today. Washington D.C. journalist Danny Casolaro called it the Octopus.

The beating heart of this story focuses on Casolaro’s probe, the people he interviewed, and the law enforcement investigators who wrestled with the many tentacles of the Octopus after Casolaro’s untimely death at the age of 44.

The book is narrated by former investigative reporter Cheri Seymour who originally probed allegations from sheriff’s deputies of drug trafficking and murder within the sheriff’s department in the tiny Sierra hamlet of Mariposa, California. For 10 years, the California Attorney General and the FBI in Fresno had ignored grand jurors and deputy’s requests for an investigation, so they filed the largest civil rights lawsuit in California history.

When she learned of Casolaro’s mysterious death in August 1991, Seymour jumped on the trail he left behind … culminating 18 years later in the book The Last Circle.
