    A real-life Talented Mr. Ripley, the unbelievable 30-year run of a shape-shifting con man. The story of Clark Rockefeller is a stranger-than-fiction twist on the classic American success story of the self-made man-because Clark Rockefeller was totally made up. The career con man who convincingly passed himself off as Rockefeller was born in a small village in Germany.

    Would you listen to The Man in the Rockefeller Suit again? Why?

    Absolutely. It is an amazing story and really well read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened whenever I could


    Any additional comments?

    I am generally not a fan of non-fiction but this book read like a novel. The story unfolded with lots of dialogue. There was suspense, interesting characters and yet it left me with questions. I would love a sequel to find out what happened to him

    Evil is most assuredly afoot - and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade... and a librarian. These are dark days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing, then reappearing, washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone. Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences - the Crown’s clandestine organization whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling - will not allow its agents to investigate. Fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with her disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let the matter rest...

    Suzanna says: "Great Steampunk - worth a listen"
    "Light bit of fun"

    What did you like best about Phoenix Rising? What did you like least?

    The story was engaging but I wouldn't waste time on another one. A bit of fluff.
