Nothing new under the sun as this tale of deception, set in Chicago's 1920's, bears this out. A master swindler shakes the tree of the wealthy in a massive ponzi scheme. Bernie Matoff of the jazz age, this con artist lived in style. I read this book in one sitting; couldn't put it down. Well paced, an easy read which includes some long forgotten Chicago history. I highly recommended this book.
