Its way too big
I have tried to find information on Mike Lawier but drawn a blank. BUT wait, theres more: Both Pajiba and Jeremy and Phil, our intrepid detectives, confirmed with a number of sources that a 3rd party marketing company named ResultSource, who specialise in bestseller campaigns on behalf of authors, were involved with the bulk buying strategy for Handbook. Rathbone, who you may recognise from the Twilight movies, was formerly in the band 100 Monkeys, who Lani Sarem used to manage.
It liquidated its credit-card-collections unit and moved the bulk of the employees over to the anti-money-laundering department.
