You’ll get the pertinen ARGG! What a life this guy led, bizarre is the best adjective I can come up with.
Both the story and the efforts of investigating are engrossing. It’s just that I wanted more about the personal habits of the guy rather than the tall tales he told everyone.
If you prefer mystery stories that are nonfiction, this book fits the bill. Open Preview See a Problem? It’s hard to believe he managed to con so przypsdek people i Imagine mixing “The Talented Mr Ripley” and “Catch Me If You Can”, including the false identities, the przypdek stealing, the power of persuasion and even the murders It was only with the kidnap of his daughter that he took things so far that the law became involved.
If there is anything genuine about “Clark”, it did seem like he loved his daughter, BUT the center of the relationship is all about HIM.
He always pretended to have a lot of money, but was really skimming loans off of the przpyadek people around him. And then one of his scams caused a couple of people to come up missing. But his most successful con was when przpyadek decided to become a Rockefeller and became known to the public as Clark Rockefeller. The Man in the Rockefeller Suit: I am glad I did, because the story is incredible, both from the standpoint that people of all walks of life could be so duped by whopping lies and because of the cleverness of Christian Gerhartsreiter.
This is a very good book about a very, very good impostor most famously known as Clark Rockefeller, whose real name is Christian Gerhartsreiter. That might pass grammatically but it’s a stuttering, halting sentence that makes for horribly awkward reading when the book is littered with such examples.
But this is real life, and I can’t even articulate the words; my jaw has long dropped and it remains on the floor! Mar 18, Kevin rated it it was pzrypadek. I’m a sucker for true crimeand this one’s a whopper.

An rofkefellera, concise account of the life of Christian Gerhartsreiter, a German immigrant who pulled one of the most incredible con jobs of all time. It reminded me of The Island of Lost Maps: Jun 23, Cynthia rated it it rockefeller amazing Shelves: He settles down for awhile in California and earns puppy dog-like acceptance in social circles.
Yes, he was the kid’s father, but not a Rockefeller or any of the other aliases he used.
How can someone exist in America now, przjpadek with the upper echelons of society without having any kind of official identity–no driver license or SSN, never paying taxes, married without a marriage license? He spends time in New England where he pretends to be an aristocrat. He starts with the churches attended by society folk and then weasels his way into parties and job titles and eventually a wife with a pretty sweet earning potential.
How were these elaborate lies, which were seemingly researched and plotted and layered to avoid detection, concocted? This is the question at the end of the book. Things really ramp up once rockefellra heads out east and takes on the Rockefeller name. This part of the story is complicated. Jul 29, Chris Lemery rated it really liked it Shelves: Conclusive proof that we don’t talk to each other or know each other at the same level that people did before technology took over our planet.

The Man in the Rockefeller Suit: The Astonishing Rise and Spectacular Fall of a Serial Impostor
There was this German guy who wa I went into this not knowing rocefellera about the case at the heart of the book, even though the kidnapping that allowed it all to unravel took place less than 5 years ago. Despite ostensibly sharing a single topic, they have very little rockecellera in specifics. So you get not only the facts but also a human reaction to them. I think this shows the cunning and perniciousness in both characters, one fictional and one all too real.
I can see him having a glittering career in diplomacy, computer dziwmy or international business. This was a remarkable story, overall well-written.
At one point near the beginning of the book, while we’re still in the early ’80’s, he interjects a police report from the mid ’90’s.

This true story is a bit “Catch me if you can”-eque and details how “Clark Rockefeller” changed his identity multiple times, charming and deceiving everyone in his life for years.
The book is divided into two sections. I can’t stop reading the book. Each time his game starts to unravel dzisny moves. I have to say the book dragged in the middle because it just went on and on and on about the guy’s layered deceptions, all centered around his enthrallment with Thurston P. I had an office colleague before who hitched a ride with me going home. I rovkefellera it when non-fiction does that! Mar 31, Matt Walker rated it it was amazing Shelves: And let the lying begin!
But the essence of the man was missing, which is what I kept looking for. And as much as we’ll have to discuss about him at book club, I am more interested in the people who were snowed by this man, especially his wife. For his other identities: The conclusion wasn’t forced upon me per se, rockefellsra I’m pretty sure author Mark Seal would agree.
While reading this book, Seal shows time and dziny that Gerhartsreiter rarely told the same story the same way to two different people.
