“Schroeder deals with his miscreants and their fraudulent
adventures in a delightful and admirably deadpan style.” Sam Debrowski, The
“Schroeder tells a fascinating, fast-paced story, hugely
entertaining and always well researched. A master storyteller! Martha
Kolloron, Halifax Daily News
“This delightful follow-up to “Scams, Scandals &
Skulduggery” offers us more fabulously entertaining stories of both past and
present crooks. I read this book in one afternoon and felt guilty when I
finished – I could read these stories forever. If you enjoy exploring some
great criminal history, this is for you! And fans of CBC Radio’s BASIC BLACK
SHOW would rate this a must-have.” Jennifer Wall, Amazon Book Reviews.
“Schroeder’s at it again with this follow-up volume to
Scams, Scandals & Skulduggery. This is good stuff through and through. It
spotlights the fiendish cleverness of the human mind and the amazing
gullibility of the general public.
If human nature amuses you, check this one out.” Tom Knapp, Rambles Magazine
