Stung Summary

Stung: The Incredible Obsession of Brian Molony by Gary Ross

This is the story of Brian Molony who embezzled over $10 million from his employers to feed his insatiable appetite for gambling. The book investigates how an assistant manager could write scores of fraudulent loans and not be detected, how he could function competantly on one level when on another level he was completely out of control. To his customers he was decisive and helpful. To his friends he was a quiet, drily humorous man who enjoyed watching sport on TV. To his girlfriends he was shy but engaging. But none of them knew about the man who bet $5000 on each of 40 college football games with teams he'd never heard of; who put $500,000 on the Super Bowl and then cheered the other side to make the finish more exciting and who won a million in a weekend and lost it again in a night. Gary Ross is Senior Editor of "Saturday Night" magazine and has won many prizes, including the National Magazine Award for his short stories. He has also written "Always Tip the Dealer".
