Biography; True crime
The Old Man and the Gun, is the story of a man who idolized the likes of Pretty Boy Floyd and, as a result, fashions himself into a notorious bank robber and escape artist. The Chameleon is the tale a French con artist gets in over his head when he impersonates a missing Texas teenager and raises the suspicions of a local private investigator. True Crime follows a riveting investigation in which a Polish cold-case detective makes an unlikely connection between a philosopher's novel and the murder case he's trying to crack. Grann takes the reader on a journey through some of the strangest and most thrilling real life stories of felonious behavior from around the world.
