Former IBM Director of Corporate Business Intelligence, Sydney Newman Dotson, is a corporate spy turned detective in “No Greater Deception, A True Texas Story.” Dotson’s debut book skyrocketed to #1 on the Barnes & Noble True Crime Biography Bestseller List this week.
“Making the Top 10 Bestseller List is wonderful. Becoming number one is outstanding,” says Dotson. “I hope Random House, HarperCollins and Penguin publishers are watching. They missed the opportunity to pick me up under their imprint title. I self-published this book myself.”
Barnes & Noble and Borders Bookstores were not prepared to meet the demand for this tell-all book written by a local Galveston County deputy sheriff’s daughter. Customers were often told the book is “not in stock” or “not available.”
A woman from Galveston said, “I can’t wait to read this book. I think I will be able to figure out the real name of Dotson’s father.”
“I want to find out if her father had anything to do with the JFK assassination,” said a Dallas man.
“I refuse to be an identity theft victim of my stepmother. I’m a survivor, says Dotson. “You can ruin my credit, but don’t steal my inheritance. I hope sharing my story with others will help prevent future identity thefts, forgeries and fraud across the country.”
“It’s a real-life Texas Soap Opera of Love, Death, Betrayal and Justice,” says Liz Carpenter, author and Lady Bird Johnson’s WHITE HOUSE Press Secretary.
In “No Greater Deception, A True Texas Story, Dotson’s stepmother forges several family members wills, and is implicated in their mysterious deaths.
Dotson has been seen on The NBC Today Show and PBS. She’s currently speaking on radio station Talk Shows as an Identity Theft Expert. Detectives, profilers and handwriting experts are using her book as a textbook case study on identity theft and the criminal mind of a Black Widow forger.
