We knew of Peter, but we never paid any attention to Pete because we didn't know he was significant to the case...there were rumors that he had been Mafia, and Geraldine and I had discussed it and believed he was Gambino and likely low level," recalls Ryan Katzenbach.

APRIL 19, 2006 - In a candid interview with Katco Publisher and author Ryan Katzenbach, embattled Fresno, California developer Dennes Coombs said that the losses resulting from his company's recently filed bankruptcy are likely to be "significant."
...
Katzenbach, who was the General Manager and newsroom coordinator for the Madera County Times, now defunct, covered the battle over Coombs' San Joaquin Riverbottom development during the late 1990's as the story unfolded.
...
His research materials, articles, photos and notes are now the subject of Katco's forthcoming title, "Fiefdom," which Katzenbach describes as a "nonfiction novel."
...
Katzenbach remained with the Madera County Times from 1998 until 2001 when the newspaper was purchased by its competitor newspaper and folded.
...
"The Coombs subject is complicated, and an intense volume of information to absorb and comprehend," Katzenbach said.The "Fiefdom" manuscript, which has now stalled awaiting the results of the bankruptcy action, stands at just under 700 pages and includes a plethora of never before published photos and materials collected by Katzenbach over the years.
...
"There was a constant changing of the rules, and everytime Coombs did A, the county came back and said 'you have to now do B, C, and D.'" Katzenbach says that the Coombs bonds---a total of 4 issues---were necessary to keep the project rolling given the cost overruns instigated by 1990's Madera County officials.
...
"The genesis of this comes down to Gail McIntyre," Coombs said Monday night in his conversation with Katzenbach.
...
"I was completely enamored with Judy's book the first time I read it," says Publisher Ryan Katzenbach.
