National Bestseller

“Lee Mackenzie had brains, looks and talent. . . . So how could she fall for a con man who very nearly destroyed her and who managed to spread lies and misery across three continents? For every time you’ve read a tale of the criminal’s wife (Ruth Madoff, are you listening?) and wondered ‘How did she not know?’, this is your answer. . . . How he does it, how she got out of the trap and how he managed to slip out of Canada and spread his cons elsewhere make this true-crime book solid reading.” —The Globe and Mail

“This is the surprisingly well-documented story of [Mackenzie’s] courtship and marriage, a brief union that cleaned out her bank account and brought the cops to her door. Jones comes across as a troubled man with a pathological need to deceive and betray, perhaps no one more than himself.” —Toronto Star

“This is no ordinary true-crime book. . . . It’s a riveting memoir.” —The Chronicle Herald
