From the Publisher
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 pilot's
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
nation's 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 world's 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 world's
most famous beaches."
