Game of Crimes


I don't know, it's just really strange. It just it just ended up here. And I mean, zodiac is something I've been fascinated with for decades. I used to live in San Francisco. I'd read gray smith's book, which is not the most accurate book, but it's a very good book in terms of readability. Nothing beats that book. And yeah, right before the pandemic started, I was working on a book about the sky named Francois January. And January was one of the worst people who's ever lived. He was a Swiss financier of terror. He was a Nazi. He was a literary age. Well, he wasn't legally a Nazi because he was Swiss and you couldn't be a Nazi, but he worked for the German intelligence agencies. After the war, he was the literary agent for the Nazi high commands. Literary estates. And then he was kind of instrumental in the founding of algier and then he got kicked out because they found him intolerable. But he had made a bunch of contacts in the Middle East. And so he became the financier of a lot of the terrorism of the 1970s and the 1980s. Well, how did you get how did you get on to him then? I mean, they come from. There's a documentary that is called terrorist advocate by this French director by barbaric Schroeder, my French is terrible. And it's about a guy who is the lawyer that represented all of these terrorists and, as mentioned in the film, because you knew paid for a legal defense of all of these terrorists. Anyway, it's a really, you know, I could go on about this for hours, but the thing about Juno is it's this very strange marriage of far left terrorism and Nazi money. And it seemed like a great book. But then the pandemic happened. And the Swiss archive shut down. So then I had a couple of other ideas. None of which I was able to bring to fruition. And then I decided I wanted to write about zodiac because I'd always been fascinated by it. And because, you know, and I give full credit to the people online, there has been a pretty active zodiac community for about 25 years. And they have collated so much information about zodiac that it gives you a way of thinking about how to dive in. And I mean, I ended up having to go back to as many original sources as I could, and so the idea was not to write how to find zodiac, the idea was to write its companion book, which ended up being called motor spirit, which is a straightforward history of the case. But in the process of doing that research, I stumbled across a name. And the more that I found out about that name, the more it became clear that there would have to be a second book, which is what turned into how to find zodiac.
