Summary
The definitive story of disgraced high-flying businessman Steve Vizard, one-time comedian and two-time Gold Logie winner. Age journalist Leonie Wood has covered the Vizard story since he first appeared before ASIC in 2005, admitting to insider trading. More recently she reported on the trial of Vizard's former accountant, Roy Hilliard, who is alleged to have swindled Vizard of $3 million. During that trial, Hilliard portrayed Vizard as a master of deception whose public persona was a charade. In this engaging examination of Vizard's fall from grace, Wood seeks to uncover the man behind the mask, and asks, why did he do it? Was it greed, audacity or sheer stupidity? And what do we really know about Steve Vizard?
