    In 1919, Texas rancher J. Frank Norfleet lost everything he had in a stock market swindle. He did what many other marks did - he went home, borrowed more money from his family, and returned for another round of swindling. Only after he lost that second fortune did he reclaim control of his story. Instead of crawling back home in shame, he vowed to hunt down the five men who had conned him. Through Norfleet's ingenious reverse-swindle, Amy Reading reveals the mechanics behind the scenes of the big con.

    D. Littman says: "a scattering of interesting facts"
    "Excellent story based on real facts."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you have ever been conned or have almost been conned like me, you will find this more than interesting. While I have been basically aware of the main ingredient of a con, that is to “promise you something you don’t deserve”. I was surprised by the inventiveness and dept of the story here told.
    The author has done a great job of explaining the history of the con.
