Reviews

so many people are naive!

(5 stars)

the reader does a fantastic job. i am going to look for more books by him. i love the way this book is written. each chapter is a short story (true accounts). and some of the chapters end so cutely with a play on words or the simple thought added to by the readers excellent fluctuations in tones. men and woman a like in this book are being scammed or committing murder and you hear it and it sounds SO obvious to you that the whole thing is a con - so it is just amazing how those people didnt see it too. time hasnt changed much - we still see people falling for fake emails in the hopes of doubling an investment.

Terribly, Diabolically Entertaining

(5 stars)

True Crimes, especially from court records over 100 years old, are not dissimilar to,that, attempted today! Some are childish, others, brilliant, while a few, are just vicious. My cup of Tea, exactly! I adore a solo project, and this is a wonderful Volunteer.

Good read
