Rod left the DA's office to become Chief Assistant Special Prosecutor to Special Prosecutor John F Keenan. They were in charge of all investigations and prosecutions of corruption in the New York City Crimainal Justice System. He was appointed Special Prosecutor when Keenan was appointed a Federal district judge. Rod left public service to form a law firm with John S Siffert and Frank S Wohl.

In 1994 he went to Washington D C as First Deputy Independent Counsel to Independent Counsel Robert B Fiske, Jr in charge of the Whitewater investigation.

Rod considers his greatest achievement to be his marriage of sixty years to his wife Barbara, who helped write FIXER, and who helped him raise four sons. They have given him four wonderful daughters-in-law and ten grandchildren. Rod hastens to add that Ian MacDonald is not him and he is not Ian MacDonald --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
