Summary Nelson investigated "the financial and legal shenanigans he (Robert Burns, a key player in the rise and fall of the Arizona land market and the Arizona Savings and Loan industry in the 1980s) used to survive the last decade and emerge once again as a major player in the Arizona land market. ... It was a story about one somewhat ethically-challeged man's unsinkable will to survive. Our investigation found a decade-long litany of questionable deals implicating RTC, bank and civil officials."
