Praise

“Rayner brilliantly tracks Hartzell’s evolution from small-time crookery to a humbug of superhuman proportions. . . . [This] fascinating history amply demonstrates that hope and gullibility spring eternal.” —The Oregonian

“Rayner’s private insights add another dimension to this biography that help it to transcend more run-of-the-mill true crime. . . . A fascinating and poignant read.” —The News & Observer

“Rayner’s beautifully balanced book . . . crams a fairly complete history of confidence scams into the story without slowing it down for a second, and breaks your heart by showing again and again how badly these good people wanted to believe in such a ridiculous scheme." —Chicago Tribune

"Witty, concise, and thoroughly researched." —Austin American Statesman
