Former Providence Journal reporter Mike Stanton covered Buddy Cianci for years. He was working on a book about Buddy during the Plunder Dome trial, which made for a difficult working relationship. Still, Stanton was able to gain a deeper understanding of Buddy by joining the mayor during the Providence Night Pride parade. 

Mike appears in Chapter 17.
