A mammoth conspiracy… how it was exposed by the most remarkable feat of detective work in the annals of government.. The Complete story told for the first time. The infamous swindle of the public that became known as the Teapot Dome scandals has never been equaled on the American record. Here is the first full-scale account of the affair, giving a consecutive narrative of the hunters and the hunted maneuvering to outwit each other, and drawing for the first time upon the Secret Service Reports in the National Archives. The Book describes in detail Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall’s appropriation of the Naval oil lands and his final illegal sale of them to his friends Harry Sinclair and Edward Doheny for a personal profit of half a million dollars.
