“Wickedly entertaining. A must read.” Bob Kelly, Globe &
“Proof that truth can often be more outrageously fascinating
than fiction.” George Brewster, Winnipeg Free Press.
“Witty and entertaining, this collection is a whirlwind tour
of 16 swindlers, con-artists, forgers and extortionists. Schroeder gleefully
recounts the exploits of such colourful characters as Emperor Norton I of the
United States, and Elmyr de Horty, a forger so proficient that his fakes have
become collectible. All the anecdotes are lively, humorous and utterly
fascinating. Five stars!” Susan Salpini, School Library Journal.
