Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake by Frank W. Abagnale, Stan Redding

Frank W. Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring con men, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history.In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilots uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was twenty-one. Known by the police of twenty-six foreign countries and all fifty states as The Skywayman, Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam-until the law caught up with him.Now recognized as the nations leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades, and ingenious escapes-including one from an airplane-make Catch Me If You Can an irresistible tale of deceit. The uproarious, bestselling true story of the worlds most sought-after con man currently in development as a DreamWorks feature film. I stole every nickel and blew it on fine threads, luxurious lodgings, fantastic foxes, and other sensual goodies.I partied in every capital in Europe and basked on all the worlds most famous beaches.
